Setup

  • MediaWiki 1.28.0 (e92ed15) 22:16, 28 November 2016
  • PHP 5.6.30-0+deb8u1 (apache2handler)
  • MariaDB 10.0.29-MariaDB-1~jessie
  • Memcached

After upgrading to MW 1.28 the propagation of pages to categories stopped, e.g. if I create a page and and a category to this page in result the page will never show up in the respective category. So I have to run "refreshLinks.php" to fix this. Is there something else I can do about it? Perhaps Memchached is no longer supported by MW. I am a bit lost at the moment. The job queue dealt with a cron job and empty.

Were you using a MediaWiki version <1.27 before the upgrade?

Yes, this wiki started as a 1.25 went to 1.27 and is now at 1.28. This is when the issues started.

On lower traffic websites, you will need to configure your Job queue to run with some regularity to process the jobs, using a cron job, or some other method of scheduling. You might also want to tweak the job rate (the amount of jobs processed after each website visit).

[edit] Oh sorry, I didn't read the thread correctly....

Indeed my job queue is dealt with by cron. I now had another look. There were actually missed jobs called "refreshLinksPrioritized" with attempt count 1. So obviously the jobs dealing with category propagation fail for some reason. I am sorry for not seeing this before. Still there seems to be something in the water.
