Journal Error - Locked Database

We received this error today:

Failed to write journal events into the embedded journal database. Journal events will be accumulated in memory until the embedded journal database is available again. ‘database is locked database is locked’.

Should we be concerned or is there a quick remedy?



Seems to have resolved itself.

Let us know if the error message appears again.

Have you opened journal database file in any external application?
Could this be the cause of the error?


This happened again this morning.

From my knowledge, we have not opened the journal database file.

I have noticed this happening as well.

@Tanner.Hart and @Shaheed_Fazal, are you using an Internal or external journal? In the latter case, which database you are using?
