Error Renaming .. File exists

Post by colt45 » Mon Dec 09, 2019 2:53 pm

Setup fresh IRCd on my Windows 10 - haven't managed/ran ircd for a while but thought I'll come back and try again.

Done the unrealircd.conf - IRCd running with no issues.

Only problem is, I'm seeing now popping up every 5 mins showing this

*** [warning] [tkldb] Error renaming 'data/tkl.db.tmp' to 'data/tkl.db': File exists (DATABASE NOT SAVED)
*** [warning] [channeldb] Error renaming 'data/channel.db.tmp' to 'data/channel.db': File exists (DATABASE NOT SAVED)


I later decided to deleted the old file channel.db and tkl.db - 5 mins later, no error coming up and I thought "Lovely, that's great news" but then 5 mins later, I'm getting that error message again.

I've search FAQ, re-read the conf and the document but can't really find a solution to how to fix this :(

I'm running UnrealIRCd-5.0.0-rc2

Thanks

Interesting. I thought I had fixed that already. Was probably in some other code then. Anyway, fixed now for next release. Thanks!

Just a general note: in the future it would be better if you report it to https://bugs.unrealircd.org/ since I don't read the support forum daily myself.

Alright, wasn't sure if it's a bug or just me :)
Will try report bugs into https://bugs.unrealircd.org next time :)
Thanks
