Maintenance scripts do not work with Postgresql
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: davidlee

I am using a PostgreSQL backend, but maintenance scripts try to access MySQL.

Running maintenance scripts give the following error:
DB connection error: MySQL functions missing, have you compiled PHP with the --with-mysql option?

Version: 1.12.x
Severity: major

The error also appears when I try to run rebuildall.php or cleanupImages.php.

rebuildtextindex.php specifically returns "This script is only for MySQL."

update.php worked for me as well.

Ah yea. IANADev but to me it looks like that those scripts don't properly create the right database class, they just use Database instead of checking to see if it should use DatabasePostgres instead.

As per bug 9905 and rebuildtextindex:

"Closing: no script is needed to rebuild the full text indexes on Postgres, it's all trigger based. (Thanks for the r22172 change though)."

Thanks, this should be fixed as of r31958
