[Tool Labs] Database credential file missing in my home directory on Tool Labs (/home/wiki13).
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Pretty much title. Somehow I seem to miss my database credential file in my home directory, so I have no way to access the replica databases. I'm completely sure I didn't delete the file on accident. For as far I can recall it has never has been there in the first place.

To resolve this task:

  1. On labstore, run /usr/local/sbin/delete-dbuser --config /etc/create-dbusers.yaml u2786.
  2. Check that after five minutes sudo sudo -iu wiki13 sql enwiki_p works.

Wiki13 set Security to None.

Invalid. Asked about this on IRC, and personal accounts are not used for database access anymore (you should use tool accounts for this for what I have been told). Documention on Wikitech ( should be updated to reflect this.

I'm pretty sure users are supposed to have a For what it's worth, recently-added new tools users do have one, so I'm pretty sure you also should have one.

Hello, i'm new lab user. It seems to be something wrong with my /home/y-verciti/ I first get a replica file from my tools.vocabulary-index account than copy it to my y-verciti account. It seems that the user will act with a bad id so people from irc.wikimedia.labs told me to ask you for reseting.
