Ok,

So I have spent a week trying to get the OLD Wiki to work, its corrupt the files are all out of date nothing works.

I have tried a local version, forcing upgrades, allsorts.

Does anyone have a LOCAL version of the WIKI that works at all, I am not sure who set this up nor who is meant to look after it but I simply cannot fix it.

I have tried.

As it stands the WIKI will not work unless someone has a version that works locally. I have backups of the WIKI Database from 12 months and 2 years ago and even from 2012 but none of them work with any of the currently available 'back releases' of wikimedia!

anyone help?

Mark

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17054 details some previous discussions on this.

I'm assuming this is MediaWiki we are talking about ? The old versions are here http://releases.wikimedia.org/mediawiki/ ? I believe we are on 1.22.1 http://releases.wikimedia.org/mediawiki/1.21/

If you want to forward me a backup I can try locally and report back.

Failing that, let's dump it and move on !

I thought we could rebuild.

i have about 3 versions of it, but from the DB I can't work out which version it is, and most of the actual HTML/PHP files are all over the shop (we have about 4 different directories from installs!)

1.22.1 requires GITHUB to get back up and running I think, i would rather just have a clean install of it and go from there....thanks for at least identifying where we were as I am lost ;)

I will have a go locally at 1.22.1 I am sure I can get the source from somewhere and can provide you access to the backups if you would like a go ;)

The upgrade is basically easy. Easy once you can execute the script directly. Alternatively is can run with a cron job. And the themes is not something to worry about. I think there are two widely used (don't remember the names now) and they are just fine. No need to install new or mess a lot with existing ones. The biggest problem in wiki is the user management. You simply cannot delete users. And we have 10³² chinese spammer accounts (we locked registrations when we found out) and it is very annoying.
