update.php doesn't recognize the expected database

Ulf Dunkel (talkcontribs)

I run a multi-languages Wiki setup with several subdomains (like,, etc.) which all use independent databases. For shared images I also use a with its own database.

When I want to update my different wikis, I expected this to work:

$ cd /var/www/mydomain/w/de/maintenance

$ php update.php --conf ../LocalSettings.php

This indeed updates "a" database, but afterwards I can no longer see my German wiki articles, but the site seems to use the database instead, as if I had entered:

$ cd /var/www/mydomain/w/pool/maintenance

$ php update.php --conf ../LocalSettings.php

I wonder what I am doing wrong here.
