Upgrade

The wiki has been updated! The old one is still running, but if you are reading this, it's on the new one. There are a few remaining problems to fix, but it's mostly ready.

Problems

  • Special pages do not work
  • File uploads do not work, as a result of special pages not working
  • The COSI logo is slightly too big. This can easily be fixed when file uploads work
  • The "<source lang="txt"> </source>" tags prevent any pages that use them from loading. In the meantime, use <code> </code> , although this lacks syntax highlighting.

Setup

This section is a work in progress. Our wiki is mostly a pretty stock configuration of mediawiki as found in the debian wheezy repos.

As opposed to rebuilding it, the best thing to do is probably just upgrade to the next release of Debian, which will be 8/Jessie. Make sure to follow the upgrade instructions for that release instead of blindly upgrading it, and make sure to have thorough backups before that.

If it ever actually needs to be rebuilt, you'll need a sql dump, the various config files, the extensions and the images folder. Then just use a stock mediawiki base, follow the instructions on the mediawiki wiki and it will probably work fine. Also set up short URL support as explained on the mediawiki wiki.
