Upgrade MediaWiki (wiki)
* Copy folders from the "extensions" folder in "wiki" into "wikinew". '''Copy only the ones that do not exist there''' (that is, don't overwrite folders in the extensions directory with older versions - only copy across the ones that are not already there). We use the extensions listed below that do not come with the base install as well as a few alos listed from the base install that you should not copy over. You need to check and see if there are new versions of these, as sometimes the original versions will not work with the new version of MediaWiki. Installed extensions are listed on the following page:
** Extension that Gramps wiki uses that come with MediaWiki (do not need to be installed) but are listed in the LocalSettings.php file
*** ParserFunctions 1.6.0 - Enhance parser with logical functions*** TitleBlacklist 1.5.0 -
** Thirdparty Extensions
*** <s>Collection - (v1.7.0 RE1_30) - Create pdf books from wiki pages</s> '''Disabled due to server load issues!'''*** Confirm User Accounts - (- 21.21 : 25 October 2016) – Gives bureaucrats the ability to confirm account requests*** UserMerge - (v1.10.1 RE1_30) - Merges references from one user to another user in the wiki database - will also delete old users following merge. Requires usermerge privileges*** LabeledSectionTransclusion - (- 4.52 : 1 September 2017) - *** Variables - (v2.2.0 RE1_30) - Parser functions allowing to work with dynamic variables in an article scoped context*** Google Analytics Integration - *** MobileFrontEnd**** "MinervaNeue" mobile Skin (v3.0.1 : 14 August 2017 RE1_30which is the same one used on Wikipedia) *** <s>Collection - Create pdf books from wiki pages</s> '''Disabled due to server load issues!'''
If there are any database schema changes, you may need to run the "update.php" file that is in the MediaWiki maintenance directory.
