2) the update

I don't have one for my v1.14.0 mediawiki so do I need this and if not what
is the command for running update without it please?
You won't have it if you haven't upgraded before; you'll need to
either create it (copy AdminSettings.sample to AdminSettings.php and
then edit it) or just define $wgDBadminuser and $wgDBadminpassword in
In fact, AdminSettings.php is not needed for latest mediawiki versions.
It will try to update with the normal db user (which should then have
enough permissions to do so, of course).
