problems upgrading to 1.24.0 from 1.19 installed by RPM on CentOS

I want to upgrade so that I can offer visual editor.

CentOS 6.6, 64 bit, postgresql database, php 5.3.3

I followed the instructions and using a browser:

* go to wiki//mw-config/index.php, language is OK so I click CONTINUE

* next page I am prompted for the upgrade key that I copy/paste, CONTINUE

* Environmental checks. Other than a warning about 'older version of the ICU
  project's library' all is OK, CONTINUE

* Database settings, enter username/password, CONTINUE

* Name page. I enter wiki name & admin details, select 'Im bored', CONTINUE

* Install page, CONTINUE

* I get database error: Error: 42P07 ERROR: relation "mwuser" already exists 
  It appears to be trying to do a fresh install rather than an upgrade. But it
  asked for the upgrade key earlier ?

As root at the command line I run & get:
    # php maintenance/update.php 
    MediaWiki 1.24.0 Updater

    DB connection error: No database connection

What am I doing that is wrong ?

Second try: PHP Notice: Undefined index: editfont in includes/resourceloader/ResourceLoaderUserCSSPrefsModule.php

Hi again,

getting to me second server-update I'm encountering a new set of error-messages. :-)

This time it's an undefined index: editfont in the file
includes/resourceloader/ResourceLoaderUserCSSPrefsModule.php

grepping for the word editfont through the whole
mediawiki-installation-directory didn't really help. It seems that exept for the
for lines inside of the file above (none of which defines editfont btw.) there's
one possible candidate in
includes/DefaultSettings.php:	'editfont' => 'default',
but I'm not sure whether that should be the definition missing in
ResourceLoaderUserCSSPrefsModule.php...

I'm adding the grep-result (minus the entries in languages/i18n/) to this mail
for anyone who's interested.

I'd be grateful for any hints or tips as to how to solve the error-message.

Kate
includes/Preferences.php:			$defaultPreferences['editfont'] = array(
includes/Preferences.php:				'label-message' => 'editfont-style',
includes/Preferences.php:					$context->msg( 'editfont-default' )->text() => 'default',
includes/Preferences.php:					$context->msg( 'editfont-monospace' )->text() => 'monospace',
includes/Preferences.php:					$context->msg( 'editfont-sansserif' )->text() => 'sans-serif',
includes/Preferences.php:					$context->msg( 'editfont-serif' )->text() => 'serif',
includes/DefaultSettings.php:	'editfont' => 'default',

Landing Page after Account Creation

Hi

Once upon a time after account creation users were directed to:
Mediawiki:Welcomecreation and then it was changed to Mediawiki:Welcomeuser
(I think). But now (1.23.6) it seems to go to a different page all together
with an option of either going back to the page they were at or going to
their preferences.

Does anyone know where that page is?

Can it be customized like Welcomecreation?

Thanks

TOC

When I click on a table of content link it goes past the heading I selected by 2 lines.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you for your help!

Can you override Less variables through MediaWiki:Vector.css?

Hi all,

I'd like to change some colours in the Vector skin, but if I do this
in CSS I will have to put hundreds of lines of code into
MediaWiki:Vector.css.  It looks like the colours I want to change are
defined as Less variables, so if I could just override those then it
would be only a handful of lines.  I don't really want to clone the
skin and modify the duplicate copy, because I will have to redo it on
every upgrade to make sure I get the latest updates to the Vector skin.

I tried putting the Less overrides in MediaWiki:Vector.css but it looks
like this content gets included separately, so it can't override any
Less variables.

Is there any way to tweak the Less code via an article page in this
manner, before it gets processed into CSS?

Many thanks,
Adam.

Removing links

Hi

This maybe the wrong place to ask this, but does anyone know how to remove
the link that says "Powered by" in the case of Semantic Mediawiki?

I've found the code to remove the Mediawiki Powered by link and the system
messages to remove the bottom links, but I can't seem to find it for
Semantic Mediawiki. There's a discussion page on this, but the info is not
correct.

All the best

Analog to $wgExtNewFields for dropping fields?

$wgExtNewFields<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgExtNewIndexes> is really handy for
adding columns to database tables. Is there an equivalent configuration setting for *dropping* columns
from tables? (Likewise for dropping indexes.)

Thanks,
DanB

Tooltips

I was looking at the information for the tooltips in MediaWiki
The info part works
However
Note and warning does not work.

Is there another way to get tooltips working in in MediaWiki without have to x out of them?

Without icon as well

Wiki Blanked out after using Composer

Hi

So I recently set up a new wiki and have been adding extensions to it. I
had added must of the core extensions, Semantic Mediawiki via Bundle, and
lots of extensions.

I decided to add https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SubPageList ,
which requires the use of Composer. It looked simple enough, but after I
ran it I have a big blank wiki. I assume I'm now missing a require file
somewhere, but where? Or who knows?

The file structure shows subpage list in the extensions path. I see the
Composer.json, but my wiki is blank.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm assuming I'm missing something
simple, but maybe not.
