How to use?
What is an "SQL table", and what does "SQL" stand for? I use SQLite, a very lightweight database system as an alternative to MySQL. So a database is needed to store revision flagging statistics? I already have an SQLite database file! Give me all the information about the SQL tables, maintenance scripts, etcetera. All for this extension, FlaggedRevs, allowing you to vote revisions of a page.
You just need to import /extensions/FlaggedRevs/schema/mysql/FlaggedRevs.sql (path for MW 1.18, trunk's path is /extensions/FlaggedRevs/backend/schema/mysql/FlaggedRevs.sql) or you run update.php.
Yeah, MediaWiki often requires command-line access; I personally use MySQL as MediaWiki has the best support for it.
In the MediaWiki 1.17 and 1.18 installations:
SQLite is a lightweight database system which is very well supported. (How to compile PHP with SQLite support, uses PDO)
I use SQLite, and .sqlite and .sql files are the same????
I do not know the proper extension for my database files, should they end with .sqlite or .sql? Please reply to me as soon as possible, in order to figure out why I cannot use the existing database file and create a new database file to store revision flagging statistics?
SQL is a universal language. .sql files should work in anything that deals with SQL - they're a list of database commands.
Also, are .db files same as .sql and .sqlite files? "DB" means "Data Base", or "database". What is a database, and .db files are same as .sql and .sqlite files?
.sql files are command scripts for any SQL database; .db is used by MySQL, and .sqlite by SQLite for actual databases.
Using this new extension is so complicated!!! What do I do now?
You don't need to know anything about all that if you knew how to run things from the command line. Depending on your OS, you should run something like
I guess he doesn't know what a commandline is and he has probably no commandline access. Just import the SQL file into the database, should work then.
Also doesn't work for me. What I did: Downloaded the trunk version (because I run MediaWiki 1.19 and the 1.18-Version threw error messages), executed /FlaggedRevs/backend/schema/mysql/FlaggedRevs.sql (thanks for that tip), but as not logged in I can edit every post and every change is saved immediately. The info box that changes will be reviewed isn't visible. The flagged-box is vissible weather logged in or not logged in. When logged in I get a "Label version" box at the bottom of every page. So something seems to work but the feature that not every user can edit posts without reviewing ist missing.
