$wgRedirectOnLogin uses the returnto URL parameter to redirect users to a specific page when they log in.

Specify the name of a page in the wiki where they should be sent automatically when they log in, for example: 'Main Page', or 'Special:MyPage'. Setting this option to null will make the user be redirected back to the page they came from.


$wgRedirectOnLogin = 'Special:MyPage';

This will redirect users to 'Special:MyPage', i.e. the respective user's user page.
