Try this:

	/etc/init.d/ dbrecover stop
	/etc/init.d/ dbrecover start

If that doesn't fix it, make a copy of the directory /var/db/ like this:

cp -R /var/db /var/db.bak

And then run this command to delete the transaction logfile:

rm -f /var/db/log.*

Then try ...

	/etc/init.d/ dbrecover stop
	/etc/init.d/ dbrecover start

... again and it should work.

With best regards
