Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

That means that there is a lock on the databse file or something else went wrong while obtaining the lock. If you are sure there is no lock and you have no concurrent write access then you can use '-' as additinal mode parameter to skip locking.
