Result Code Meanings Overview Many of the routines in the SQLite C-language Interface return numeric result codes indicating either success or failure, and in the event of a failure, providing some idea of the cause of the failure.
This document strives to explain what each of those numeric result codes means. Result Codes versus Error Codes "Error codes" are a subset of "result codes" that indicate that something has gone wrong. There are only a few non-error result codes: The term "error code" means any result code other than these three.
The least significant 8 bits of the result code define a broad category and are called the "primary result code".
More significant bits provide more detailed information about the error and are called the "extended result code" Note that the primary result code is always a part of the extended result code. Given a full bit extended result code, the application can always find the corresponding primary result code merely by extracting the least significant 8 bits of the extended result code.
All extended result codes are also error codes. Hence the terms "extended result code" and "extended error code" are interchangeable. For historic compatibility, the C-language interfaces return primary result codes by default. Definitions All result codes are integers.
Symbolic names for all result codes are created using " define" macros in the sqlite3. There are separate sections in the sqlite3.
The names and numeric values for existing result codes are fixed and unchanging. However, new result codes, and especially new extended result codes, might appear in future releases of SQLite.
Most other result codes indicate an error. In a working version of SQLite, an application should never see this result code.
If application does encounter this result code, it shows that there is a bug in the database engine. SQLite does not currently generate this result code.
However, application-defined SQL functions or virtual tablesor VFSesor other extensions might cause this result code to be returned. Process B will need to wait for process A to finish its transaction before starting a new transaction.
For example, a DROP TABLE statement cannot be run while another thread is reading from that table on the same database connection because dropping the table would delete the table out from under the concurrent reader. Note that this error can occur when trying to write information into the main database file, or it can also occur when writing into temporary disk files.
Sometimes applications encounter this error even though there is an abundance of primary disk space because the error occurs when writing into temporary disk files on a system where temporary files are stored on a separate partition with much less space that the primary disk.
The file in question might be a primary database file or on of several temporary disk files.A customer asked that we check out his intranet site, which was used by the company's employees and customers.
This was part of a larger security review, and though we'd not actually used SQL injection to penetrate a network before, we were pretty familiar with the general concepts. If you are receiving a warning on the program's launch regarding being unable to write files, it means that you do not have permissions that the program needs.
Message: Attempt to write a read only database. Using my Django app, I'm able to read from the database just fine. When the application didn't have permission to access the file, it gave me this error: attempt to write a .
Active Record will perform queries on the database for you and is compatible with most database systems, including MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Database cannot be upgraded because it is read-only or has read-only files.
Make the database or files writeable, and rerun recovery up vote 5 down vote favorite. Notice that applying volatile doesn’t prevent a write followed by a read from being swapped, and this can create brainteasers. Joe Duffy illustrates the problem well with the following example: if Test1 and Test2 run simultaneously on different threads, it’s possible for a and b to both end up with a value of 0 (despite the use of volatile on both x and y).
