The AccountInfo extension allows users to see private information stored about themselves via "Special:AccountInfo".

Information shown[edit]

  • $wgPutIPinRC - shows all unique IPs for actions made by the logged-in user that are currently stored in the table.
  • CheckUser - shows all unique groups of IP address, User-Agent, and XFF header that are currently stored in the table.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called AccountInfo in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'AccountInfo' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'AccountInfo' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/AccountInfo/AccountInfo.php";
