I setup a mailing with a few contacts and have troubles sending it. The mailing fails after sending the first email. The progress bar says "sending", then "saving" and stops after 1-2 minutes with an error message "Saving failed...". In the log file I can find the following entries:

>     [error] $Fatal Error Details = Array 
>     [info] Retrying after Database lock encountered hit on attempt 2 at query : UPDATE `civicrm_mailing` SET...

The error occurs on no matter if I execute it as job or as test mailing from within the mailing editor.

I'm running Civi 5.59.1 on Drupal 9.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Welcome to SE! Can you check the log if the is anything after "UPDATE civicrm_mailing SET" ? Without the full message, it's difficult to help.
