$wgDBtransactions gets set to true if using InnoDB tables. Is there
an advantage to using InnoDB tables?
The disadvantage is that with MySQL there is a file, ibdata1, that
seems to grow endlessly if InnoDB tables are used. See

I want to moving all pages in a certain namespace (about 60 pages) into
the the "main" namespace. I couldn't find how to do this, so I tried
exporting the pages and importing them and I ran into all sorts of
problems. Is there a way to do what I want without using the import and
export features (and without having to move each of them manually)?
When I search after some terms, which have not been defined yet, or after editing an entry (but not always???), I get the following error message:
For query "sales"
Jump to: navigation, search
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "". MySQL returned error "1030: Got error 127 from storage engine (localhost)".
Has anybody had this error before? How may I fix it?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help and best regards,
P.S: I found a similar message at the The Wikitech-l Archives, but in my case no table name was written, so what shall I do????

I am building a web site for a family member who is in the process
of completing a PhD and MediaWiki looks like the ideal CMS to use
as they will be able to update their own web site (delegation is
always important :-)
1) There may be a need to have certain pages in multiple languages.
Is the best way to do this for a small site is to add a language
identifier to the page title eg:
here is the CV in [[CV.en|English]] or in [[CV.nl|Dutch]].
Is there a way to do this and still have a more readable title eg
"English CV" rathern than "CV.en"?
2) I see from the LocalSettings.php that it is possible to prevent
access to certain pages for users who are not logged in. Do I
need to list all the pages I want blocked or is it possible
to do wildcards eg internal*

I found this page which has an extension that worked on my wiki:
as there seems to be nobody willing or able to make the FileLink-Extension
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FileLink work with MediaWiki 1.11.0 I'm
now looking for an alternative to this Extension for easy inclusion of links to
local files, preferably through a windows-like-search-gui through wich the local
file can be selected.
Does anybody know of such an extension?

Greetings all --
Hopefully this is simple hack. I've setup a mediawiki instance but need
to change the link 'article' to 'property'. The wiki is going to be a
public property wiki for anyone to search for property information. So
changing the word article to property only makes usability sense.
Thanks in advance,
