Manual talk:Update.php

Latest comment: 9 years ago by in topic PHP Error

mediawiki as library[edit]

Is update.php intended only to upgrade mediawiki core or to maintain update for specific extensions/ (like wikilog does) ?. I have installed wikis sharing the same svn codebase but with differents databases and sql schemas differs (myextensions/*). Any clue? Greudin 09:36, 6 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

PHP Error[edit]

My Special Version Page says that I'm running php 5.3.6 and I am getting the following error when trying to run this script??

You are using PHP version 4.4.9 but MediaWiki needs PHP 5.2.3 or higher. ABORTING. Check if you have a newer php executable with a different name, such as php5.

Any ideas???

You run this old PHP version on the shell. Make sure that you run a current PHP version - also on the shell. -- 16:10, 5 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sometimes, the system uses the default PHP configured. What you can do is update the command so that it will point to the latest version of PHP installed on your machine.
The updated command would be /path_to_bin_folder_of_php/php update.php
