Upgrading from 1.22.15 to 1.33.0: "is usable, cannot create an anonymous actor"

Hi everyone,

I am trying to upgrade an old (v.1.22.15 on PHP5.7 and mysql) mediawiki to MW1.33.0 on PHP7.3.9. I have done this successfully for 2 different wikis today, but on the third wiki it fails at the "Upgrade existing installation" stage, with the following errors:


maintenance/migrateActors.php.

Creating actor entries for all registered users

... 1 - 72

Completed actor creation, added 5 new actor(s)

Beginning migration of revision.rev_user and revision.rev_user_text to revision_actor_temp.revactor_actor

... rev_id=100

... rev_id=201

... rev_id=302

... rev_id=402

User name "4Shades" is usable, cannot create an anonymous actor for it. Run maintenance/cleanupUsersWithNoId.php to fix this situation.

... plus many more lines like this, then

An error occurred:

A database query error has occurred. Did you forget to run your application's database schema updater after upgrading?

Query: INSERT  INTO `actor` (actor_name) VALUES ('')

Function: MigrateActors::addActorsForRows

Error: 1062 Duplicate entry '' for key 'actor_name' (localhost)


I have tried opening a shell and running the script maintenance/cleanupUsersWithNoId.php but it crashes immediately. Can anyone give me any pointers here? I am happy to edit tables etc manually if need be. Perhaps I just need to kill all edit archive records to remove anonymous users from the DB and restart the conversion?

Many thanks in advance,

4Shades

Does it give any error? If not, what is the exit code (checkable by running echo $? immediately after the script exits).

Here is the output of cleanupUsersWithNoId.php


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '?' in E:\Apache2.4.41\htdocs\mediawiki-1.33.0\maintenance\Maintenance.php on line 882

Call Stack:

   0.0004     274552   1. {main}() E:\Apache2.4.41\htdocs\mediawiki-1.33.0\maintenance\cleanupUploadStash.php:0


The echo $? command outputs "$?".

Found the source of the PHP error on cleanupUsersWithNoId.php - I was referencing the older PHP version in the PATH. Referencing PHP7.3.9 instead makes that error go away.

Having executed cleanupUsersWithNoId.php successfully I can complete the upgrade script ok.
