Do not rely on indexed fields in MySQL queries in CargoUtils::getTables().
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Relying on indexed fields in MySQL queries is not reliable and not compatible with all MySQL installations. The fix is simple.

This shows up as issue in the CargoTables special page as well.

Line 49: $out->addWikiText( $this->msg( 'cargo-cargotables-totalrows' )->numParams( $row[0] )->text() . "\n" );

var_dump($row[0]); //null

However, the actual result row has:

array(1) {
  string(1) "3"

It would be best to reference COUNT(*) to a field alias such as: 'COUNT(*) AS total'
Then pull it by the associative index: $row['total'].

I made a patch that fixes all of these instances.
