When attempting to install CARGO on a SQL Server based MEDIAWIKI installation, I encountered some installation errors documented below. I know this should not be a surprise, since CARGO is not guaranteed to work with SQL Server. I am stuck with SQL Server, and I would really like to use the CARGO extensions on MediaWiki. I am hoping that somebody could look into this and provide some feedback if it is feasible to provide a fix for this.
PHP: 5.6.29 (cgi-fcgi)
MS SQL Server 10.50.1600 (Server 2008 R2)
Attempting to install the Cargo extension, I have encountered the following problem. The database tables never get created by the maintenance script. I have used the following process to install the Cargo extension:
Place the Cargo directory in the extension directory.
added this line to the localsettings.php file:
"require_once( "$IP/extensions/Cargo/Cargo.php" );
Then run PHP update.php from the command line in the maintenance directory.
Update completes with no errors.
Checking the database, I find that no Cargo tables were created.
Although, checking the Special Versions page, it does show that Cargo is installed. Navagating to the Special Cargo pages causes a fatal error.
I have also tried to install using the command:
wfLoadExtension( 'Cargo' );
in the localsetting.php file with the same results, no tables created after running the update.php.
Lastly, I have tried to manually create the two Cargo tables in the database and test Cargo functionality, but received a fatal web error.
