Pretty Cool[edit]

I haven't tried it out yet (and with my non-wiki related worload won't get to for a while...Face-sad.svg), but this seems very useful. Thanks for making it!

Are you planning to add more scripts to it? If so, I would like to suggest generateSitemap.php.

Looking forward to using this extension. Smaug Tournesol.png 21:08, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I'm planning on eventually supporting the entirety of the /maintenance directory, plus any extension scripts that want to be included as well (but those get scrutinized more). --Skizzerz talk - contribs 22:26, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

It seems very usefull when you can't launch any php script within the maintenance directory ! What about deleteOldRevisions.php ? I am also very interrested by the generateSitemap.php

This is helpful, thanks! I'll keep checking back for the generateSitemap.php script as well.

deleteBatch[edit]

Is it not working yet or did I do something wrong?

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfgetlb() in /home/deathbyn/club_html/extensions/Maintenance/Maintenance_body.php on line 410

--DeathByNukes 20:34, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Strange, I'm not getting that error myself... Anyway, this extension is still a bit buggy after many tests with it, so I'd recommend holding off on it and using something like PHP Shell instead (google it). --Skizzerz 20:48, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
Heh, my host already has a lot of tools, I'm just not comfortable trying to modify the database directly.--DeathByNukes 22:42, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
The error is due to the fact that wfGetLB() and such were added by Tim Starling in rev:32578. Thus Maintenance won't work on wikis not running 1.13alpha. You should either use an older version of Maintenance or upgrade your MediaWiki to 1.13alpha (or wait for the "full" MW 1.13 release). --Sayuri 11:27, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Does this script work on mediawiki 1.15.1? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.105.134 (talkcontribs) 28 January 2010

Yes It does. ^^ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.93.133.155 (talkcontribs) 18:45, 17 February 2010

MW 1.16[edit]

Does this work safely with MediaWiki 1.16 ? Preferably with 1.16.0beta3 ? Krinkle 04:00, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

The current version does not work with 1.16. I do have an updated version that does work, but I have yet to commit it as I'd like to ideally at least have most of the common scripts supported upon its release. --Skizzerz 04:34, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
Yay late replies, but the new version in svn works with 1.16+ now. --Skizzerz 08:37, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
it not work for me the maintenance page is empty (i've changed enabled to 1 and have file on maintenance folder!)

MW 1.17 gives several parser errors[edit]

I try to install the Extension, but when I click on Special:Maintenance, I get many errors.

Including:

Will look into this, expect a fix in a few days. --Skizzerz 04:47, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
great, I'll try the fix then, hope that motivates more ;-) --Erkan Yilmaz 04:48, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
Also have what seems to be the same errors after upgrade Mediawiki 1.18 and upgrading this extension to the trunk version. Here's a ScreenShot of the errors. Mlpearc powwow 11:14, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Broken in Mediawiki 1.17.1[edit]

Downloaded everything for 1.17.1. I had it installed and working fine on a 1.16 install. Here are the particulars. MediaWiki 1.17.1 PHP 5.2.17 (cgi-fcgi) MySQL 5.0.67-log Once enabled, it breaks the Special:SpecialPages and throws a 500 internal. Permissions? Do I have to set something in the maintenance folder? Hutchy68 19:58, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

[Resolved] The metadata.ini file is either corrupted or missing. Please re-download the Maintenance extension[edit]

Clean install of Mediawiki 1.18.1, using svn to install and get this error. Tried deleting and downloading again. The ini does exist and I can open it in vi.

Fixed in version 2.1.0 --Skizzerz 05:15, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I have the same problem with my site. Site: http://wikibiz.vn, MediaWiki version: 1.19.2. Anyone know how to solve this problem without upgrade to 2xx version? Thamdaocatba (talk) 10:09, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm not seeing it listed in Special:Version, but just upgrade to the latest version of Maintenance (2.1.1 as of this writing), which is perfectly compatible with MediaWiki 1.19. --Skizzerz 00:49, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
It didn't work so I removed it. I downloaded new version and now It's working. Thank you so much. For who needs. Thamdaocatba (talk) 14:36, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Maintenance page empty[edit]

installed on mediawiki 1.18.2 and specil maintenance page is empty

I need more information than that. What is your Maintenance extension version, what is your PHP version, and what errors (if any) appear in your error logs? --Skizzerz 10:33, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
May be this problem == my error, if display_errors=off. Author, try create file named .htaccess with string php_flag display_errors on in your MW root dir and refresh Special:Maintenance for see php's errors. /D.S.Denton/ 92.36.63.4 20:19, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Please re-download the extension, it appears your metadata.ini file got corrupted somehow. --Skizzerz 20:22, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Re-download... also not working. Video, 2.96MB, WMV9 /D.S.Denton/ 81.177.1.71 11:44, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Please state your MediaWiki version and PHP version, if you can screenshot Special:Version and your phpinfo() that would likely be best. I cannot reproduce this error on my own development servers, meaning that it is an issue with something on your end. --Skizzerz 05:21, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

The problem seems to be that some setups cannot parse the lines 69-72 since they use \" to escape a ". I fixed the problem by changing this:

output[] = "islower regex \"(.*)\" already lowercase\."
output[] = "clash regex \"(.*)\" skipped; \"(.*)\" already exists"
output[] = "dryrun regex \"(.*)\" -> \"(.*)\": DRY RUN, NOT MOVED"
output[] = "moved regex \"(.*)\" -> \"(.*)\": (.*)"

To this:

output[] = "islower regex '(.*)' already lowercase\."
output[] = "clash regex '(.*)' skipped; '(.*)' already exists"
output[] = "dryrun regex '(.*)' -> '(.*)': DRY RUN, NOT MOVED"
output[] = "moved regex '(.*)' -> '(.*)': (.*)"

The authors should fix this, since it appears to be a widespread problem. Hope this helps someone. --ReCover (talk) 15:07, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the find, I'll look into why this might be happening and what can be done about it. Unfortunately, changing to single quotes won't make localization work properly, but if you're running in English-only that does not affect you in the least. --Skizzerz 03:48, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
Can you test if the following works for you?
output[] = 'islower regex "(.*)" already lowercase\.'
output[] = 'clash regex "(.*)" skipped; "(.*)" already exists'
output[] = 'dryrun regex "(.*)" -> "(.*)": DRY RUN, NOT MOVED'
output[] = 'moved regex "(.*)" -> "(.*)": (.*)'
I'd like someone who actually gets the error (it doesn't happen in my test environment) to test that out before I push it into the main repository. --Skizzerz 03:54, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Emilio: I tried the code above (the one with single quotes) and it WORKS! Testing now. I need to change the language of my wiki from en to it: so I need the script rebuildmessages. Thank you.


Thanks to ReCover for fix. Working. Second variant stops on string 72:

output[] = 'moved regex "(.*)" -> "(.*)": (.*)'

with error as my first message, only string number = 72

It is unlikely that this will be fixed as the issue is a PHP 5.2 bug, and PHP 5.2 will no longer be supported by MediaWiki as of version 1.20 (which needs PHP 5.3.2+). If you have access to your webserver's PHP installation, upgrading to PHP 5.3 will fix your issue. --Skizzerz 20:52, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Extension Distributor delivers wrong files for Master branch[edit]

Downloading the Development version (trunk) from http://upload.wikimedia.org/ext-dist/Maintenance-master-2248296.tar.gz results in 10 MB of Git repository. Better use https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/gitweb?p=mediawiki/extensions/Maintenance.git;a=snapshot;h=refs/heads/master;sf=tgz to get the actual PHP files for the extension. --Nakohdo (talk) 11:52, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

How to add importDump.php?--Juandev (talk) 21:52, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

mw 1.24.1, not working Check images[edit]

The check images isn't working, everything is missing.

My wiki is a private one.

removeUnusedAccounts Script[edit]

Hi,

I have configured this script on metadata.ini:

[removeUnusedAccounts]
enabled = 1
option[] = "delete check 0"


but I am not able to use the option check to set delete on/off, where off means just list the users to be deleted.

How should I do?

Thx

RunJobs doesn't work[edit]

Hello,
Here's my config :

  • MW : 1.30.0
  • Maintenance : 2.3.1
  • wiki farm (I use php runJobs --wiki=wiki-name to run scripts)

Since I upgraded my wikis from 1.21, launching runJobs.php from Special:Maintenance no longer works while showJobs still works.
Am I alone to experience this problem?
Thanks in advance for your help !
--Megajoule (talk) 17:01, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

I think I found the solution: comment the line ;option[] = "type input" in extensions/Maintenance/metadata.ini
