Subversion Plus: Database may be already in use: "Locked by another process"

Sorry for this awfull title !

I installed the subversion plus plugin on Jira version 5.0.6 and it was working fine.

I then upgraded Jira to latest version 6.0.6 on another server (Backup/Restore via xml file)

Since then, the plugin doesn't work anymore and I have the follogin errors:

[pbeltranl.subversion.jira.RevisionIndexer] Database may be already in use: "Locked by another process". Possible solutions: close all other connection(s); use the server mode [90020-173]
org.h2.jdbc.JdbcSQLException: Database may be already in use: "Locked by another process". Possible solutions: close all other connection(s); use the server mode [90020-173]

I tried, disabling/resintalling the plugin but it didn't help.

How could I fix this error ?

thank you.

I don't know too much about the xml based upgrading process that you mention, so I ve no idea about what could be wrong.

Please, try to:

1. Disable the plugin and delete the index directory:

$JIRA_HOME/caches/indexes/plugins/docminer-subversion-revisions_h2

2. Start the plugin.

If the described above does not work, try to re-start JIRA.

Thank you very much for this quick answer !

  1. Stoping jira
  2. Deleting the index directory
  3. Restarting Jira

Solved the issue. (Just disabling the plugin did not)
