Hello. I'm trying to handle this request to have some pages with large histories deleted. As steward, I have the bigdelete permission in my global group. I however cannot delete it the normal way (clicking on the delete tab) because the operation is aborted as it takes a lot of time (obviously, a page with ~50 revids takes time to delete). But I can't delete it either via API, because it always gives me an obscure "HTTP error".
API parameters I tried, and which worked with two of them were:
/w/api.php?action=delete&format=json&maxlag=5&servedby=1&curtimestamp=1&title=<pagename here>&reason=<reason here>&token=<token here>&utf8=1
Pages that I successfully deleted are listed here.
I asked for help on wikimedia-operations, and @jcrespo said to better ask here.
