The LocalisationUpdate extension allows to update the localizations for MediaWiki messages at any time, without needing to upgrade the MediaWiki software.
Installation[edit | edit source]
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called LocalisationUpdate in your extensions/ folder.
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/LocalisationUpdate/LocalisationUpdate.php"; $wgLocalisationUpdateDirectory = "$IP/cache";
- Create a
cachefolder in the installation directory, and be sure the server has permissions to write on it.
- Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
Note: If localization updates don't seem to come through, you may need to run
php maintenance/rebuildLocalisationCache.php --force.
Configuration[edit | edit source]
Directory to store cache files in, if not set then it uses default $wgCacheDirectory. LocalisationUpdate requires some place to store files in to work; if neither $wgLocalisationUpdateDirectory nor $wgCacheDirectory is set, LocalisationUpdate's update.php script will not work.
$wgLocalisationUpdateDirectory is set to false by default.
Default repository source to fetch translation. Github is set to default repository. This is added with version 1.1.
Array of repositories URLs from which to retrieve localisations for core MediaWiki and extensions. Default is set to Github's MediaWiki Git repositories and you should not change this unless you're using this performance improvement or otherwise know what you're doing. This is added with version 1.1.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Whenever you want to run an update, run
php extensions/LocalisationUpdate/update.php on the command line, or set up a cron job.
NOTE: LocalisationUpdate does not update automatically. If you want to update your localizations regularly, you need to setup a cron job yourself.
Script parameters[edit | edit source]
With version 1.1,
--repoid: Fetch translations from repositories identified by this
Known issues[edit | edit source]
If you enable this extension directly from the web installer, it doesn't configure the
$wgLocalisationUpdateDirectory variable, so if you don't configure it explicitly, it would throw an exception when viewing any page (Task T48885). You must manually configure that variable after installing the extension.
