Is there any progress on searching and displaying the displaytitle in Cirrus? Over here, we're dealing with page titles that cannot be represented in a regular wiki page title, like Gl=v, 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1, about: Saint Luke Drawing the Virgin, or ]...[world]...[ — just your regular titles for digital artworks. 😉 If users cannot search for those, or on the search results page the titles are different, much confusion can be expected.

I was able to fix the local issue by adding WIKIBASE_SCHEME=https to wdqs-updater environment.
When chaning WIKIBASE_HOST to artbase.rhizome.org, SiteLinks are still rejected, probably because the protocol is https instead of https:

Scribunto and SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi are already part of the Mediawiki docker image the Wikibase image is built on. However, they are not loaded via the final LocalSettings.php. Both are helpful extensions that would be nice to have activated by default.

It is not entierly clear why the error happens. A hint might be that the last item that was correctly processed was followed by a gap in the item list. Q7246 is fine, Q7247 for some reason does not exist (it was _not_ deleted, it just never was created), then the row continues with Q7248.

- I would recommend looking at how nextcloud handles docker configuration: defaults shipped in the docker container and configured by environment variables are handled in the default config.php file. Additionally, any file called *.config.php is loaded and can override these settings. Something similar could easily be adopted as a convention for wikibase and satisfy users that would like to just use the defaults, use augmented defaults, or use just their own settings.

The erroneous bug report T246952 is a good illustration of how the current handling of LocalSettings.php in the container is problematic:
Not true, Scribuntu is included in the Docker image and works.

This etherpad contains notes on WDQS namespaces under "Configure your own name space for query service"
OK now I am specifying conceptUri, and now all data is moving fine into the query service!

The environments are the same for wdqs and wdqs-updater containers, here are the full entries:
environment: - WIKIBASE_SCHEME=https - WIKIBASE_HOST=artbase.rhizome.org - WDQS_HOST=wdqs.svc - WDQS_PORT=9999

I don't see a need for this feature anymore, and would even see this as giving people coming from RDBMS wrong ideas on how to transition to linked data. At least this was the case for myself :)

wikimedia has custom PHP versions, Apache versions, etc. Are these actually desirable for releases / 3rd party users? How about the docker library images?

I'd like to share a few thoughts from the perspective of running a Wikibase since 2015 and having switched to the Docker distribution in 2017, including data migration:

I have done some customization with MediaWiki:Common.css, which is pretty easy. But the logo could be set in the docker-compose file indeed.
Screencap of how this looks:

What hast worked is setting WIKIBASE_HOST in the docker-compose file to the actual public hostname and in the Wikibase's LocalSettings.php adding an explicit concep URI prefix with http protocol, like $wgWBRepoSettings['conceptBaseUri'] = "http://staging.catalog.rhizome.org/";

We have been able to put the ttl-dump into Blazegraph now with the following process:

Thank you @Smalyshev!

When removing the alias staging.catalog.rhizome.org from the wikibase container in the docker-compose file, the connection is made via the docker network and can be established. However, the contents of the Wikibase are still rejected:
I think there is lots of ambiguity here...

I think I need more guidance on how to run this script. I did use the --start and --init switches before.

Thanks @Smalyshev! Indeed the double dashes were the issue!

I had to correctly configure the reverse proxy for the .htaccess redirect to function. The problem is indeed fixed, feel free to close.

Scribuntu is easy enough to install actually, however it would be nice to be included alongside activated GeSHi and CodeEditor extensions.
Mediawiki-initiated redirects have been solved by setting $wgServer in LocalSettings.php.
The SendGrid extension magically worked without running php composer. Closing since I am not sure what exactly composer does and how it does or doesn't affect other extensions.

After adding wfLoadExtension( 'OAuth' ); and $wgSecretKey = "<randomString>"; to LocalSettings.php, and running update.php, the error changes to Error retrieving token: mwoauth-oauth-exception.
@Addshore I am using Caddy.

I am looking at runUpdate.sh inside the wdqs container, which I believe is documented here.
I was able to solve Mediawiki redirection problems by adding the public host name a mounted LocalSettings.php in $wgServer.

Not currently reproducible
Again, plese excuse the brevity of the original ticket.
Is the WIKIBASE_HOST variable used for both communication with Wikibase and the URI prefix?
I see the scoping problem, on the other hand, it would be overkill to require two containers for a simple Wikibase deployment in which I am guessing the regular Wiki part would also be used.
Entity-URLs are auto-generated as http://localhost:8181/entity/Q1996
Please excuse, my last set of tickets was added during a Wikibase workshop.
During the Berlin workshop it seemed like there was an agreement that every Wikibase should provide a manifest with key information about its properties, see T197588

At Rhizome we used the following command to reset Blazegraph:
I think it would be good to have most of the LocalSettings.php provided with meaningful conventions and offer a way to append lines for name spaces etc...

Apparently, normalizePageName in MediaWikiSite doesn't follow redirects. MediaWikiSite writes this error log:
BTW, the proof that 'Delocator.net' exists as a wiki page:

After some checking, indeed that must be the case. However, I don't know what configuration mistake I made.

Found out that the problem appeared because $wgWBClientSettings['repoUrl'] containing a trailing slash and $wgScriptPath is empty.
