Asksql extension allows you to do SQL queries through Special:Asksql in the wiki, without opening phpMyAdmin etc.

Warning Warning: Dangerous if not configured properly!


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Asksql in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/Asksql/Asksql.php";
$wgGroupPermissions['bureaucrat']['asksql'] = true;
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


On the individual pages for these settings, it says deprecated in 1.5, since this extension was split from core mediawiki in that version. If you've installed the extension, these settings apply regardless.
