== MediaWiki Maintenance == The .sql scripts in this directory are not intended to be run standalone, although this is appropriate in some cases, e.g. manual creation of blank tables prior to an import. Most of the PHP scripts need to be run from the command line. Prior to doing so, ensure that the LocalSettings.php file in the directory above points to the proper installation. Certain scripts will require elevated access to the database. In order to provide this, first create a MySQL user with "all" permissions on the wiki database, and then set $wgDBadminuser and $wgDBadminpassword in your LocalSettings.php === Brief explanation of files === A lot of the files in this directory are PHP scripts used to perform various maintenance tasks on the wiki database, e.g. rebuilding link tables, updating the search indices, etc. The files in the "archives" directory are used to upgrade the database schema when updating the software. Some schema definitions for alternative (as yet unsupported) database management systems are stored here too. The "storage" directory contains scripts and resources useful for working with external storage clusters, and are not likely to be particularly useful to the vast majority of installations. This directory does contain the compressOld scripts, however, which can be useful for compacting old data. === Maintenance scripts === As noted above, these should be run from the command line. Not all scripts are listed, as some are Wikimedia-specific, and some are not applicable to most installations. changePassword.php Reset the password of a specified user cleanupSpam.php Mass-revert insertion of linkspam createAndPromote.php Create a user with administrator (and optionally, bureaucrat) permissions deleteOldRevisions.php Erase old revisions of pages from the database dumpBackup.php Backup dump script edit.php Edit a page to change its content findHooks.php Find hooks that aren't documented in docs/hooks.txt importDump.php XML dump importer importImages.php Import images into the wiki moveBatch.php Move a batch of pages namespaceDupes.php Check articles name to see if they conflict with new/existing namespaces nukePage.php Wipe a page and all revisions from the database reassignEdits.php Reassign edits from one user to another rebuildImages.php Update image metadata records rebuildmessages.php Update the MediaWiki namespace after changing site language rebuildtextindex.php Rebuild the fulltext search indices refreshLinks.php Rebuild the link tables removeUnusedAccounts.php Remove user accounts which have made no edits runJobs.php Immediately complete all jobs in the job queue undelete.php Undelete all revisions of a page update.php Check and upgrade the database schema to the current version updateRestrictions.php Update pages restriction to the new schema userOptions.php Change user options
