Got the following error "Attempt to write a readonly database" with a django web site after replacing the database.
Django app has been deployed on a digitalocean ubuntu droplet using Nginx and Gunicorn.
Table of contents
Change database ownership
Problem was that the django app has been deployed on a repertory owned by a user called for example 'johndoe':
however the database owner was "root"
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 116928512 Sep 26 00:06 database_new.db
-rw-r--r-- 1 johndoe johndoe 116752384 Sep 26 02:07 database_old.db
to fix that just change database owner
sudo chown johndoe database.db
and the error was fixed.
Error was due to the fact that I used root user to scp the new databse:
scp -rp database_new.db root@ip_address:/home/daidalos/johndoe/mysite/.
scp -rp database_new.db johndoe@ip_address:/home/johndoe/webapps/mysite/.
