FEB 2012

  • 03:54, 7 FEB 2012 (UTC)
    • Fixed problem with parsing CITE ref tags - updated ParserFunctions extension & added variable required to utilize integrated string function functionality. Citataion / References now work.
  • Attempted to 'upgrade' existing MediaWiki template version to newest - Backed up entire site (including DB) prior to attempt. Uploaded & attempted in-place upgrade of MediaWiki platform - several file & directory permissions issues residual from transfer to new hosting account caused disaster level corruption of functionality. Installed fresh MediaWiki & restored site using existing DB & pieces of existing LocalSettings.php file. Downloaded & 'installed' newest version of SMW & other extensions. Migrated all existing cache & images into new template, & corrected several permissions issues causing upload / delete errors. Verified all extensions functional & site fully operational.

JAN 2012

  • Migrated existing site to new hosting platform (VPS). Backed up all existing files & DB information to local workstation & re-created site manually on new hosting server. NUMEROUS bugs exist due to transfer including several compatibility issues with updated versions of MYSQL & PHP. MediaWiki updates badly needed - resolved easily corrected issues to facilitate limited usability until upgrades can be performed.

    • Updated LocalSettings.php server side, which will allow me to (in the future) expose it to the wiki (users) without cause for security alarms. Should Be backend only.
