reassignEdits.php fails, giving "User '' not found"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: todd.pederzani

On two 1.9.2 MediaWiki installs the reassignEdits maintenance script fails with
the error "User '' not found.", even when trying different parameters
varying the to and from parameters. The hosts are different: one has PHP 5.2.0
and MySQL 4.1.15 and the other host has PHP 5.1.6 and MySQL 5.0.24. Both were
upgraded from 1.6.x; I hope this is not an issue particular to my configurations.

Version: 1.9.x
Severity: normal
OS: Linux
Platform: PC
