$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'd like to modify the edition buttons (the buttons you have above the
edition frame when you modify a page), to remove the date from the
signature button, and keep only the name.
It works manually when removing one of the '~' from the signature added
the buttons comes from.
I got this error of my website recently: When I login and click "edit", the
error message pop up:
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 "IndexPager::reallyDoQuery (LogPager)". MySQL returned
error "1146: Table 'nicawebsite.nica_tag_summary' doesn't exist (127.0.0.1)"
Then I google this error message and find out the solotion:
So I run "php update.php" in /maintenance, only get this :
MediaWiki 1.15.1 Updater
A connection to the database could not be established. Check the
values of $wgDBadminuser and $wgDBadminpassword.
I am quite sure the values are correct in Localsettings.php
How can i fix this?
Thanks for the answer.
I just tested, and it only works if I disable the Extension:UsabilityInitiative in $IP/LocalSettings.php
Do you know something about this bug and how to fix it?
So, I created a wiki and installed the Semantic Bundle. The last
step involved announcing my wiki, which I did. I don't see it anywhere in
any list though. It just started so there isn't much to see but I am
curious about the smw submission process and how to get listed.
is there any way of setting the default image license? Right now, I
only could find adding licenses, but the default is always "no license
given", and has to be manually changed before uploading.
What I've been trying to do is find a way to embed external content on
MW pages, especially the main page. This is for a departmental team
portal project. The 'external' content maybe be in several forms, and
is typically small snippets of information that are placed in
different places on a page with <div>.
My goal is that each time the MW page is loaded that the external data
is loaded. I've used two methods so far:
<php>include ('http://someURL.php <http://someurl.php/>');</php> and also
'include' extension like <include src="http://.someURL.php" /> or
<include src="file.inc" />.
The PROBLEM is that the external data isn't reliably loaded
dynamically. Seems like it's cached somewhere and only updated when I
modify the page -- how can I work around this? (tried disabling
memcached with effect) The external data are either fully dynamic
(e.g. some php that pulls/calculates data at each execution), or are
peridically updated by some outside method (eg a cron job that runs
every 15min and dumps some results to a txt file).
This is not an attempt to create an ajax-like solution with <div> that
are independent of the page (althought that would be nice too and I
don't know where to even start)... this is only to update each time
the page is refreshed (anyone know a way to add a meta-refresh to a MW
Thanks in advance ... i've been picking away at this for a few months
with no luck and now i really need to find a solution FAST.
