I did try to migrate a Wiki as detailed below and it seems to have worked to
some extent - except that in the MySQL DB on the origin server many entries
contain hard-coded references to the origin server's FQDN - which obviously
doesn't work once moved to the destination server. That does not look right.
Does anybody know why that would be, and how to get rid of those hard-coded

If I need to migrate a MediaWiki installation from one machien to
another, how do I go about that task?
In other words:
1) Is there an established procedure?
2) If so, where is it described?
Thanks in advance.
I just did that. I backed up (Linux, using tar) my MediaWiki
directory. I backed up the database. Then I ftp'd the directory
structure to the new server and untarred it. Then I imported the
database into the database on the new server.
If you have images, execute the maintenance/importImages.php script
from the command line.
It worked like a dream!
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong
