Does MW1.31 change it's way to load Localsettings.php?
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Hi MW developers,

I am running a wiki farm with multiple wikis. The farm was archived by putting MW source code under /mediawiki folder. Then all other wikis have their own LocalSettings.php under their own folder, with linux soft link to point files/folders (index.php,includes,extensions, etc...) back to /mediawiki folder.

/www/mediawiki (all MW code, no config file, no web access)

/www/a (LocalSettings.php, soft link of files/folders to /mediawiki )

Such settings work well since MW 1.25. However, after I upgrade the test wikis from 1.30 to 1.31. None of these wiki's LocalSettings.php took effect.

They all show "LocalSettings.php not found." if no setting file exist under /mediawiki folder. If I add a functional LocalSettings.php to /mediawiki folder, then all the other wikis now showing one same wiki.

What's changed in MW 1.31? What can I do to get MW to load different config file from different folder correctly?

Best wishes,
zog lun
