I'm using Mediawiki version 1.10.0
Thank you for your help,
This has probably been covered, but I probably missed it. Also, a Google
search doesn't seem to be finding what I need.
I simply want to send an e-mail to ALL users listed in the users list.
Is there a way (extension, etc) to easily do this? If not, might be a
good sysop functionality to add in a future release?
I am about to move our wiki to a new server, and I think I've got the
whole moving the database part down, but is there a way to redirect all
pages (links) to the new server? I know I can redirect index.php with
just a normal redirect...so no worries there....but that will just
bounce them to the main page. What about if they are coming straight to
an article they have bookmarked or linked to?
Example...say a page link was:
but will now be:
I have a small wiki farm set up with separate tables for each. We would like
to have a "Welcome Page" that is common to all the wikis, so that editing it
from one of the wikis would reflect the change across all the wikis.
Is there any way to do this ?
I'm on a shared server that so far has been very open to MediaWiki and
all my required extensions. My Wiki isn't so large that it needs
dedicated space, but when I asked about installing ploticus.pl
(necessary for the EasyTimeline extension, which I'd like to use), my
host told me I should upgrade to a VPS server, which is beyond my
budget. But I read that I can install the .pl in another location, so
long as LocalSettings.php can see and execute it. Where would be the
best place to put it so it doesn't cause any security issues? I checked
the page, and it said it can install in other places, but there weren't
any recommendations for specific-type locations, like
/extensions/easytimeline or something. I still know the path to my Perl
though, even though I can't put the script itself there.
If I can't install ploticus without a security issue, is there an
alternative extension that I'd be able to run from a shared host?
Good morning all,
my apologies for a stupid but probably easy to answer question.
I currently run MediaWiki 1.5.0; I seem to understand that I could not
even do a direct upgrade to 1.10.1 but would have to make intermediate
However, I would like to move from a directory in my domain to a
subdomain anyways so I thought I could skip the intermediate steps by
doing the following:
- Full backup of the current Wiki
- Disconnect of the current Wiki to the MySQL database
- New installation of MediaWiki 1.10.1 at the subdomain (with all the
necessary steps such as generating folders etc.), referencing my MySQL
- Upload the MySql database dump (made with mysqldumper) if necessary
I´d appreciate any hint if I have a substantial error in this plan.
Thanks so much, best regards
I have a question regarding the appearance of article names in custom
Consider that there is a custom namespace Foo and there is an article named
When this article is put into a category and later on all articles of this
category are listed the article will appear as Foo:TEST.
Is there a way to let the article appear as TEST only (or is this not
possible due to conflicting article names in other namespaces) or any hint
where I can find some information on that topic?
I already managed to post into mediawiki with your help.
Now I've got the problem, that I also should upload images this way.
Is there a possibility to do this?
The MediaWiki manual says that you have to be logged in to be
able to upload images.
Is there a way to do this with a bot who isn't logged in?
Thanks for your information.
