since you helped me so gratefully, some more questions.
1. How can I clean up the Database (MySQL).
Actually it's the History (visions).
Manually: Copy each page to your clipboard you want to lose the history
for. Delete the page and Recreate it from the clipboard. This way
everyone can see that you did that which might be perceived as nice or
Automatically: Study the database structure carefully and craft the
right SQL statements to make the modification you want to do. Please do
tell people that you have modified something, so they know that the
right policy is to not really trust anything the history says. If the
install is public, archived copies may be used to detect this which
will put you into a bad light for those that can access this detail
level of information which in turn widens the so called "digital gap"
between those who know that you are a crook, who guess you are a crook
and those who have no clue.
You could use mysqldump -uusername -ppassword databasename > file.sql
and edit that with emacs or whatever tool you have available
drop and create the database in MySQL
mysql -uusername -ppassword databasename < file.sql to import the
2. How can I change the second (standard) Title on every new Page
("aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie").
("from Wikipedia, the free Encyclopaedia" Eng.???)
Last time I checked it can be modified in Language.php which can be
found in the subdirectory named languages
3. And do I really need to write or to copy the whole
(it was completely empty).
Depends on how friendly you want to be to wiki users
i hope this helps. sincerely Juxo
ps. If i have a "kick me, i'm stupid"-note on my back or something i'd
really appreciate if you folks telling me about it. The same goes for
if you perceive that i smell bad, though that is much more subjective
and might amuse some people.
