you know, links break after time... Thats why many wikis use services
such as webcitation.
Is there some non-experimental extension, which automatically creates
backups of links using either webcitation, archive.org or similar services?
Or some doing some other kind of backup, such as screenshot the page or
storeing the page?
(The ArchiveLinks extension  looks very well, serving exactly this
purpose, but its really stresses, not to use in in production wiki.)
I apologize for posting this as I did post it earlier, but I am at a total loss as to what the problem may be, so I am pleading for help.
I upgraded from 1.16 to 1.21 and then 1.21.1. Ever since upgrading from 1.16, I can no longer upload files.
It is not a permission or ownership issue, as all directories/sub-directories/files all the way down through and including each parent directory "/var/www/html/wiki/images" have root as owner and group and everything is set for 777.
Entry point URLs
I either get "Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/5/54" or
Jump to: navigation, search
Error storing file in '/tmp/php78T3qA': Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-temp/4/4a".

"The GCHQ mass tapping operation has been built up over five years by
attaching intercept probes to transatlantic fibre-optic cables where they
land on British shores carrying data to western Europe from telephone
exchanges and internet servers in north America.
This was done under secret agreements with commercial companies,
described in one document as "intercept partners"."
I have set
$wgHTTPProxy = "http://<our proxy>:80";
but it requires authentication. How can I set the username and password for such? I can find any doc on MediaWiki or the web that specifies how.

I am trying to update from 1.16.1 to 1.21.1 on a hosted site to which I
do not have command line access.
I have installed the 1.21.1 files, copied over my images directory,
LocalSettings.php that was carefully tested on a local PC with updated
extensions, etc. I ran the update on the local PC to uncover the
extension issues, etc, and that worked fine.
I have edited my .htaccess files to disable mod_rewrite so that I could
navigate to the update script.
I did not overwrite my 1.16.1 files, I made a new directory for the new
files and renamed it to w after renaming my "w" to "w1.16.1"
php Error reporting is set to E_ALL
I set max_execution_time to 1200 !!!!
When I run :
I get a totally empty page and the navigation bar says :
But there is no sign that anything is happening. No error message, no
progress bar, no clock, no hourglass, nada.
If I hit 'Back' I can get a "do you want to restart your installation "
screen, but this gets me no further.

What would be the best way to do A/B testing on a MediaWiki site? I guess a few people here might have tried before me. (Mostly interested in the mainpage, but possibly a few content pages as well)
