Patch to 1.23.11 leads to unusable wiki

10 (talkcontribs)

If I install the patch, everything seems to work fine but afterwards mediawiki does not work any more and reports:

wfShorthandToIntegerFatal error: Call to undefined function wfShorthandToInteger() in /home/users/xyz/doms/xyz/subs/www/mediawiki-1.23/includes/Setup.php on line 303

That's a known issue. Will be fixed asap according to the mailing list. 1.24 is affected too. 1.25 should be cool (talkcontribs)

Ok thanks, great!

Strange. I deployed this version to heaps of wikis without an issue. Did not use the patch file though.

Great to hear. Sometimes issues just pile up. Happy editing!

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

The problem is caused by the install being from a tarball while the patch is based on an installation from Git. Files for testing purposes aren't included in the tarball, but patch tries to change one of them, which is why it fails. The upgrade from 1.23.3 to 1.23.4 is successful despite breaking out of it at the error with Ctrl-C. It's only the missing file that gets skipped. See bug 71379

We are currently working on this issue. In the future, changes to the tests directory should not be included in the released patches. I made a respective comment in bugzilla. Thanks for finding this.

With the update to 1.23.X my wiki's dropdown menus (in the vector skin) are blank. The menu that should display More or Actions is only a grey arrow. The menu still displays the regular menu entries but the menu label is missing. I'm running MW 1.23.1 (clean install, no update). Thanks.
