Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

A few minutes ago I had a perfectly working site with Django on Debian and Mysql and then decided to run django-admin.py cleanup. The process started but did not do anything for quite some time so I decided to stop it hitting ctrl-c and since then my database is sort of locked, inaccessible from Django or from the command line. I can restart the process but nothing really happens. Any hint?

Try to kill the process? –  Lucas Kauffman Mar 29 '12 at 7:45
well, this is a production server and I did not have a lot of time so it is already duplicated. I guess I will never know what was the cause of this. –  Bastian Mar 29 '12 at 11:15
