I have the latest version of Surftrackr (03-26-08) and an Ubuntu system that is up to date. Surftrackr uses the Django framework (version .96) and MySQL (version 5.0.51a) for the datebase.

When I run the python script that takes the data from Dansguardian access.log file (average size of 25MB) it imports it into the Surftrackr MySQL DB. It is rare that one log file finishes without a MySQL error. I am 80% sure this issue has to do with MySQL, I couldn't find any info in the KB or on Google.
