I just attempted to upgrade my wiki ( http://pipedia.org ) from Mediawiki
1.15.0 to 1.16.2. After running the update I'm missing tables that 1.16.2 is
After uploading the new files I first tried using the installer to run the
update from the web. Initially it reported that the database was schema 4
and it would not be able to update it to schema 5, but it looked like it
updated tables anyway? Apparently not, or not all of them. I then re-ran the
installer with the backwards compatibility option and still had issues so I
ran the update.php script using SSH shell access. It ran without reporting
any errors, but I'm still getting errors indicating the database didn't
This is using PHP 5.2.15 (cgi-fcgi) and MySQL: 5.1.52.
Do you think the issues are related to the schema 4 data base or did I botch
things up trying to use the installer first?
Fortunately I've got a back up of the database and all my files pre-upgrade
'd really appreciate any help in getting this straightened out.
