New installer/Test plan

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The test plan is broken down into three parts

  • High priority tests - high-frequency tests
  • Medium priority tests - at least once a cycle
  • Low priority tests - tests that will be run only if there is extra time

High priority[edit]

These tests will be run very frequently. The total of all tests in this section should take an experienced engineer no more than a few hours to run. These tests are prime candidates for automation.

  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki using 'MySQL' database type.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki on one database with different database prefixes.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki on already installed MediaWiki.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki with different database accounts for web access.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki by updating the existing database.
  • Verify error messages of MediaWiki when the 'MySQL' database is stopped.
  • Verify error messages of MediaWiki when the user inputs invalid/blank values for fields in 'Connect to database' page.
  • Verify error messages of MediaWiki when the user inputs invalid/blank values for fields in 'Name' page.

Medium priority[edit]

These tests should be run at least once over the course of the release. They are still important, but are much lower priority for automation. It's helpful to provide an estimate for how long this section will take, but there's no strict upper bound on the amount of time this section should take other than the time available in the overall development schedule.

  • Verify the environmental check before running MediaWiki installation.
  • Verify MediaWiki installation on 'SQLite' database type.
  • Verify the ability of restarting MediaWiki installation at any point of the installation.
  • Verify the default values in additional 'Options' page.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki on already installed MediaWiki with Latin1 tables and UTF-8 format chosen.
  • Verify successful installation of MediaWiki on already installed MediaWiki with UTF-8 format tables and legacy format chosen.

Low priority[edit]

These tests are still documented, but are only run if time is available. A release should not be held if there isn't time to run these tests. This section will probably start off empty, with some medium priority tests moved down to this section as priorities are set.

  • Verify MediaWiki installation on different language options.
  • Verify the user interface of MediaWiki pages( MediaWiki initial page, Language, Welcome to MediaWiki!, Connect to database, Upgrade existing installation, Database settings, Name, Options, Install, Complete!, Restart installation, Read me, Release notes, Copying, Upgrading ).

29 Help field hint availability for the fields. Help field hint should be available in the followings.

1. Connect to database -> MySQL

Database host

  • If your database server is on different server, enter the host name or IP address here.
  • If you are using shared web hosting, your hosting provider should give you the correct host name in their documentation.
  • If you are installing on a Windows server and using MySQL, using "localhost" may not work for the server name. If it does not, try "127.0.0.1" for the local IP address.


Database name

  • Choose a name that identifies your wiki. It should not contain spaces or hyphens.
  • If you are using shared web hosting, your hosting provider will either give you a specific database name to use or let you create databases via a control panel.


DataBase table prefix

  • If you need to share one database between multiple wikis, or between MediaWiki and another web application, you may choose to add a prefix to all the table names to avoid conflicts. Do not use spaces or hyphens.
  • This field is usually left empty


Database username

  • Enter the username that will be used to connect to the database during the installation process. This is not the username of MediaWiki account; this is the username for your database.


Database password

  • Enter the password that will be used to connect to the database during the installation process. This is not the password for MediaWiki account; this is the password for your database.


2. Connect to database -> SQLite

SQLite data directory

  • SQLite stores all data in a single file.
  • The directory you provide must be writable by the webserver during installation.
  • It should not be accessible via the web, this is why we're not putting it where your PHP files are.
  • The installer will write a .htaccess file along with it, but if that fails someone can gain access to your raw database. That includes raw user data (e-mail addresses, hashed passwords) as well as deleted revisions and other restricted data on the wiki.
  • Consider putting the database somewhere else altogether, for example in /var/lib/mediawiki/yourwiki.


Database name

  • Choose a name that identifies your wiki. Do not use spaces or hyphens. This will be used for the SQLite data file name.


3. Database settings -> Search engine

Storage engine

  • InnoDB is almost always the best option, since it has good concurrency support.
  • MyISAM may be faster in single-user or read-only installations. MyISAM databases tend to get corrupted more often than InnoDB databases


Database character set

  • In binary mode, MediaWiki stores UTF-8 text to the database in binary fields. This is more efficient than MySQL's UTF-8 mode, and allows you to use the full range of Unicode characters.
  • In UTF-8 mode, MySQL will know what character set your data is in, and can present and convert it appropriately, but it will not let you store characters above the Basic Multilingual Plane.


Database account for web access

  • Select the username and password that the web server will use to connect to the database server, during ordinary operation of the wiki.


4. Name

Name of wiki

  • This will appear in the title bar of the browser and in various other places.


Project namespace

  • Following Wikipedia's example, many wikis keep their policy pages separate from their content pages, in a "project namespace". All page titles in this namespace start with a certain prefix, which you can specify here. Traditionally, this prefix is derived from the name of the wiki, but it cannot contain punctuation characters such as "#" or ":".


Your Name

  • Enter your preferred username here, for example "Joe Bloggs". This is the name you will use to log in to the wiki.


Email address

  • Enter an e-mail address here to allow you to receive e-mail from other users on the wiki, reset your password, and be notified of changes to pages on your watchlist.


Subscribe to the release announcements mailing list

  • This is a low-volume mailing list used for release announcements, including important security announcements. You should subscribe to it and update your MediaWiki installation when new versions come out.
