Description Domingo Becker 2013-07-09 17:57:18 EDT
Description of problem:
After updating to Fedora 19, from Fedora 18, I get the following error when trying to access a wiki page in the F19 box:

Unexpected non-MediaWiki exception encountered, of type "PDOException"
exception 'PDOException' with message 'There is no active transaction' in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/db/DatabaseSqlite.php:664

# rpm -qa mediawiki

The problem has been reported upstream in bug 49254

I solved the problem as specified in comment #3 in that bug, by commenting out
$this->query( 'PRAGMA case_sensitive_like = 1' );

Here's the patch:

--- /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/db/DatabaseSqlite.php.b	2013-07-09 18:23:36.406803060 -0300
+++ /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/db/DatabaseSqlite.php	2013-07-09 18:25:50.923274655 -0300

-			$this->query( 'PRAGMA case_sensitive_like = 1' );
+			#$this->query( 'PRAGMA case_sensitive_like = 1' );
 			return true;

Of course, users should not forget to run 

  php /usr/share/mediawiki/maintenance/update.php

after the upgrade to Fedora 19, otherwise, some different errors will also appear.

Thanks for the patch. Do you know if upstream is planning on committing this change? I'd like to see an upstream commit before I apply it.
Comment 2 Domingo Becker 2013-07-10 08:44:04 EDT
I don't know. Perhaps they'll propose a different patch.

As I hit this problem, I just wanted to share how to solve it under Fedora.
Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2013-07-10 09:10:46 EDT
Could you at least propose your patch to upstream and point me to where that is? I'd rather them pass it off and check it. I don't run any SQLite installs and I would like to keep the mediawiki package as close to upstream as possible.
Comment 4 Michael Cronenworth 2013-11-07 23:45:18 EST
Is this still an issue with mediawiki-1.21.2-2.fc19?

If it is have you proposed the patch to WikiMedia?
Comment 5 Joshua Werner 2013-11-28 11:57:11 EST
I do not believe this is an issue as of mediawiki-1.21.1.fc19. Running php /usr/share/mediawiki/maintenance/update.php was able to update the sql database and access updated wiki without issue.

Sorry for the late reply.

It's not an issue anymore. I'm using mediawiki-1.21.2-2.fc19.

Thank you.
