[Mediawiki-l] Recent Changes shows nothing!

First question:
What is your $wgRCMaxAge set to?

By default changes are only kept in the recentchanges table for 7 days.

See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgRCMaxAge

Second question:
Have you recently changed any settings on your wiki or run any of the
maintenance scripts?

Otherwise I would suggest checking your server logs.

Subject: [Mediawiki-l] Recent Changes shows nothing!

When I click on Recent Changes as of this morning, I see only today's 
activity.   a new user added joined the wiki, and a page was 
updated.  No matter what I do to look back in time, I don't see anything,
even when I tell it to look back 300 days and 500 edits.  There should be a
full year worth of edits there.  I could see them yesterday, but not today.

I am running Mediawiki 1.15.1, PHP 5.2.6, and MySQL 4.1.16

Did the new user hack me somehow, or what?  He looks like a spammer, but a
very mild one.
