[Mediawiki-l] local files listed as external links

Hello all,

I have a MediaWiki installation which I am trying to migrate to a different
machine. Migration seems to work fine except for one small detail: a whole
lot of files which are local to the Wiki and thus should only be referenced
as local URL's (i.e, by using the relative path) are listed in the
mw_externallinks database table, and listed by the full path (http://... )
to boot.

So , my questions are as follows:
1) Why did this happen? What is misconfigured in my Wiki?
2) How to avoid this in the future.

Thanks in advance.
