context_processors debug() Fails with no DB Backend

If no database backend is defined the debug() function of djnago.core.context_processors fails at:

context_extras['sql_queries'] = connection.queries

because the 'DatabaseWrapper' object has no attribute 'queries'

This happens in my pip install of Django 1.2.1 on my Linux Server but not in my recent trunk checkout on my Windows djago dev server.

If you do not specify any DATABASE_XXXX settings then the connection is set to a django.db.backends.dummy.base.DatabaseWrapper instance, which does have a queries attribute (an empty list). Therefore no exception is raised in this context processor. For that reason (and after discussing this with russellm) I'm closing this as worksforme.

I do not doubt you're having an issue with this, but if you'd like it to be addressed you need to provide more information about how to reproduce it:

  • What do you mean by "the debug() function fails at"? What exception is raised?
  • What do you mean by "if no database backend is defined"? As I said, if you do not specify any database settings then it should just work. So what are you doing to disable (or not enable) the database backend in your project?
