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).
I ended up needing AdminSettings.php because I had to provide my root
database user details - the normal user didn't have enough
permissions. Maybe I'd set up something in correctly earlier, but at
least the root permissions worked.
