Use the command line maintenance script to do the rename, or use a different account to do the rename.

The article says, "You can't rename the same account from where you're performing the rename. Use the command line maintenance script to do the rename, or use a different account to do the rename."

I'm in the maintenance folder, but there does not appear to be a script to perform the rename:

# ls |grep -i rename
renameDbPrefix.php
renameRestrictions.php

I'm using Mediawiki 1.35.2, if it matters.

That's because the renameUser maintenance script is not located in MediaWiki's default maintenance folder, but in extensions/Renameuser/maintenance.

If you encounter this error during rename on MediaWiki 1.33 or newer, remove any instance of $wgActorTableSchemaMigrationStage in LocalSettings.php, because this setting has been deleted in 1.33 but this extension is trying to fallback to the old behavior if defined with some specific values.

Hello, I am the administrator of TibiaLatina Wiki, I added the extension "reusername" to my directory called Renameuser in myextensions/ folder, also add wfLoadExtension( 'Renameuser' ); code at the bottom of my LocalSettings.php but when loading the page I get the error 500. Im using Mediawiki 1.32.0


P.s.: I have already integrated other extensions to my wiki and everything has been perfect, my only problem arises with this extension.


What will be the cause? Thanks!

What I want to change is my username, since it is my real name and I would like to change it to another.

Hi!

I'm an admin and bureaucrat at pt.wikt. I just tried using this there and got a page saying that I'm not allowed to execute the action I have requested. Can you help me? Thanks.

Renaming users with stupid unicode names

We have had a user have some fun with Unicode characters that move out of the actual text area -> Link. When trying to rename the user to a "normal" name there is only a [99e16bb96fedb23f92af27ed] 2018-06-11 20:34:51: Fataler Ausnahmefehler des Typs „Error“ (Fatal Error of Type "Error"). Getting rid of the user also does not work with Extension:UserMerge.

installing on Mediawiki 1.23

when installing this extension on a Wiki (Mediawiki 1.23), I get the message "This version of the Renameuser extension requires MediaWiki 1.25+"

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

You are trying to install a version that is incompatible with MW 1.23. Either you update a wiki, e.g. to MW 1.27 (LTS) (preferred) or you should use a version compatible with MW 1.23.

When trying to rename a user I get the following error. Any suggestions?

Please also state the versions used for PHP and MediaWiki to make it easier for developers to pin the issue.

I'm also getting the following when trying to rename a user account (the extension used to work... we've been installing additional extensions and now it doesn't).

I don't understand these instructions at all. On other wikis, there is an administrative where you can request a username change. I can't make any sense of these instructions, some seem optional, others not, do I have to create extra pages and put code on them? i don't get it.

This page explains how to install the Renameuser extension on a wiki. If you want to be renamed on this wiki, which happens to use the Renameuser extension, you can go to Project:Requests#Requests_for_renames.

Thanks, MF-Warburg, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I wanted to usurp a username that's not being used and that I use on other wikis. Much appreciated. ;-)

What is the resource consumption of this extension? I was wondering if it might be better, on smaller wikis, to disable it (by commenting out the require_once line in LocalSettings.php) until a need arises to rename a user.
