Details[edit]

If this file is found and its contents are more than 0 bytes long, the database is locked for the reason given in the contents of the file.

The file must be writable by the web server for locking the database when using the special pages "Special:LockDB" (locking) and "Special:UnlockDB" (unlocking).

This feature cannot be used if the wiki uses CACHE_DB for $wgSessionCacheTypeManual:$wgSessionCacheType since users cannot log into the wiki to access "Special:UnlockDB" for unlocking the database.
