$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

Is there a way to ensure that a template is included in all pages of a
particular namespace? I'd like to use our mediawiki to allow people to
annotate some things in a biology project, and the wiki URLs will be
generated automatically by an external program.

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?
I have a word file (1200 pages) (written within the last 10 years). It is
written in cinstant format (Like a lexicon) and i would like to import it
into a mediawiki installation. How can I do that?
Any help is highly appreciated

Try disabling all extensions, verify that the password doesn't reset,
then enable them one by one until you find the culprit (you may need to
ogout and login on each test).
