The folks here will probably want to know what version of Mediawiki, php, sql etc. I can't visit the site's Special:Version page to look, I get redirected to something else for some reason. Looks like it's a shoutwiki, you might want to contact the shoutwiki people.

Is php 7.1 compatible with the version of MediaWiki you are using? https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Compatibility#PHP

its my own wiki which is a work in progress, its nothing to do with shout wiki, that text was just added as a filler rather than what it is.

http://igoaddons.eu.org/index.php?title=Special:Version

Product Version
MediaWiki 1.31.0-rc.0
PHP 7.3.22 (cgi-fcgi)
MySQL 5.7.30-log
ICU 63.1
Lua 5.1.5

I tried version 1.35 but my database hated that and would not load anything so after trial and error this wiki version works. all pages load apart from extensions which i cannot install as need composer. cannot seem to inatall semanticmaps or semanticwiki as need composer and nothing works

In this comment you say you ran update.php, but the output you pasted seems to indicate that you pasted a few wrong things into the command line before correctly using the php update.php.

But that invokes php 4(!!!) which is ancient and will not work.

Try using the command php7.3 update.php in order to invoke the 7.3 version on the command line which matches the version that your website is using.

neither works


(uiserver):u101519602:~/igoaddons.eu.org$ php7.3 update.php

it sounds like you are using the php-cgi executable instead of the php-cli executable. your system may have php-cli installed under a different name or you may have to ask your system administrator to install it.

seems the command had to be

/usr/bin/php7.3-cli igoaddons.eu.org/maintenance/update.php


would never have guessed that solution
