[Mediawiki-l] Running the deleteOldRevisions.php script

Hi guys,

This is my first post, so please be gentle if I'm in the wrong place. 

I just want to delete the article history log for my new wiki - all the changes I've made so far have been tests, random comments, etc. Can I get rid of the history before going live? 

I've tried running the deleteOldRevisions.php script (that sounds right) and it seemed to work...

:~> php /usr/home/sites/aboutnlp.com/maintenance/deleteOldRevisions.php
Delete Old Revisions

Searching for active revisions...done.
Searching for inactive revisions...done.
345 old revisions found.

... but the history is still showing for all articles.

I've put the correct username/password in AdminSettings.php.

Have I missed something? Or is there another way?

All help welcome.
