This extension help replacing the mediawiki webroot with another version. Hallo Welt! GmbH use this to upgrade BlueSpice in a docker environment from free to a pro version by entering a valid token. It should be used only in a special setup where all wiki data is outside of the webroot, otherwise data will be lost after execution.


# in webroot
git clone https://github.com/hallowelt/mediawiki-extensions-BlueSpiceUpgradeHelper.git extensions/BlueSpiceUpgradeHelper
echo "wfLoadExtension('BlueSpiceUpgradeHelper');" >> LocalSettings.php


Got to Special page Special:Subscription_Manager and enter token, if token is valid the upgrade process can be started and the wiki will reboot after installation is complete.
