Today I wanted to install another PHP-Extension to my virtual server with "yum install php-mbstring" and ran into an error. It said: "database is locked". I already searched alot in Google but it still doesn't works. Thats the reason I'm currently writing this topic. The error happens everytime I want to install an package.

I'm using CentOS 7.

Oh and sorry for my absolutely bad english, I'm from germany.

I hope someone can help me.

Edit: Screenshot of the error: http://prntscr.com/v64nmr
