The AbsenteeLandlord extension will automatically lock the database from any further changes if a sysop has not been on the wiki recently (determined by
$wgAbsenteeLandlordMaxDays). This helps prevent dead or inactive wikis from becoming spambot targets. To unlock the database, a sysop simply needs to visit the wiki again.
Installation[edit | edit source]
- Download and extract the file(s) in a directory called
extensions/folder. If you're a developer and this extension is in a Git repository, then instead you should clone the repository.
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
- Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
Configuration[edit | edit source]
By default this extension locks the database after 90 days without having an active sysop. If you would like to change this, e.g. to 60 days you will have to add the following line below the inclusion of this extension:
$wgAbsenteeLandlordMaxDays = 60;
