Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):
- Try to upload a file on Beta Commons, either via Special:Upload, Special:UploadWizard, or the action=upload API.
The special pages fail with the error message: “Could not acquire locks on server rdb1.” (Sometimes also “Could not acquire locks on server rdb2.”)
The API fails with the error code: lockmanager-fail-svr-acquire
What should have happened instead?:
Successful file upload.
