Anyone had difficulty implementing LDAP connection using the LDAPAuthentication2 extension? The old one back in 1.19 version of mediawiki was working fine but now after upgrading it’s not working.
Anyone got a sample they can share how you configured all the necessary files? I keep getting “cannot bind” or “cannot fine server”. My ldap server connection is the same I use for other apps and they have no problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
We see a continuous flow of requests like shown below. We are fairly
certain it is a botnet probing for weaknesses or vulnerabilities. The
source IP address slowly moves around. It looks like there was a bug
in load.php some time ago .
I don't have time to manually monitor this. We are looking for one of
those wiki plugins to handle it at the application layer.
How do we ban the host for making these probes for a day or a week?
Thanks in advance.

We are running a survey to find out how MediaWiki can be improved for the
typical non-Wikimedia user.
Does MediaWiki work well for your company, organization or personal
project? What are the pain points and what do you love? Take a few minutes
to let us know your thoughts.
Please share the survey with (other) MediaWiki users. We are particularly
interested in the experience of the typical user rather than the expert. We
already know a lot about what expert users want. Hence this survey
explicitly is not for MediaWiki developers, wiki consultants, Wikimedia
employees and primarily Wikipedia editors. If you are one of those, please
do still share the survey.
Survey for MediaWiki users: https://forms.gle/Ah9xL5KjroLwLpkGA
If you are not using MediaWiki, but are considering to do so, or have
investigated it in the past, we have an alternative survey for you. Again
we ask everyone to share this survey.
Survey for people not using MediaWiki: https://forms.gle/BqFyR6kPRi5z6DtQ6
We will share results of the survey on our blog.
Thank you for helping to make MediaWiki even better!

It's coming close to time for annual appointments of community members to
serve on the Code of Conduct (CoC) committee. The Code of Conduct Committee
is a team of five trusted individuals plus five auxiliary members with
diverse affiliations responsible for general enforcement of the Code of
conduct for Wikimedia technical spaces. Committee members are in charge of
processing complaints, discussing with the parties affected, agreeing on
resolutions, and following up on their enforcement. For more on their
duties and roles, see
This is a call for community members interested in volunteering for
appointment to this committee. Volunteers serving in this role should be
experienced Wikimedians or have had experience serving in a similar
The current committee is doing the selection and will research and discuss
candidates. Six weeks before the beginning of the next Committee term,
meaning 27th of April 2019, they will publish their candidate slate (a list
of candidates) on-wiki. The community can provide feedback on these
candidates, via private email to the group choosing the next Committee. The
feedback period will be two weeks. The current Committee will then either
finalize the slate, or update the candidate slate in response to concerns
raised. If the candidate slate changes, there will be another two week
feedback period covering the newly proposed members. After the selections
are finalized, there will be a training period, after which the new
Committee is appointed. The current Committee continues to serve until the
feedback, selection, and training process is complete.
If you are interested in serving on this committee or like to nominate a
candidate, please write an email to *techconductcandidates** AT
wikimedia.org <http://wikimedia.org>* with details of your experience on
the projects, your thoughts on the code of conduct and the committee and
what you hope to bring to the role and whether you have a preference in
being auxiliary or constant member of the committee. The committee consists
of five members plus five auxiliary members and they will serve for a year;
all applications are appreciated and will be carefully considered. The
deadline for applications is end of day on 19th of April, 2020.
Please feel free to pass this invitation along to any users who you think
may be qualified and interested.
Amir on behalf of the CoC committee
