qgis.db is used by QGIS Desktop or Server to store user defined Coordinate Reference System.

This storing is mandatory for drawing layers. QGIS-Server is looking for qgis.db in the directory /.qgis2/. If this directory exists and QGIS-Server has rights to create files in it, the qgis.db will be created but QGIS-Server does not CREATE TABLE. Because qgis.db has no TABLE, QGIS-Server cannot use QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem::saveAsUSerCRS.

To fix this issue we can had code in QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem::getRecordCount to create the table tbl_srs, or had in qgis_map_serv.cpp code to initialize qgis.db

Initializing qis.db in the server sounds reasonable to me. What about moving QgisApp::createDB() to core (e.g. static method in QgsApplication), then call it from QgisApp and qgis_map_serv during initialisation?
