Off topic: Wiki spammer is using spoofed IP addresses???

I am surprised to see that a spammer is spoofing his IP address.  I got some spam from 200.90.74.226 - "226" is
out of range for IPs and so isn't even a valid IP address.  I confirmed that the number is not a wiki username
and the apache log shows the same IP.  It appears maybe the spammer's script has a bug and not range-checking
the generated numbers which made it obvious that the IP is spoofed; otherwise I would have never noticed.

I thought IP spoofing was a fairly sophisticated tactic and didn't expect to see a common wiki spammer using
it, or am I wrong?  I'm also surprised apache even allowed the connection, much less the Amazon AWS
firewall.  Am I missing something?

I need to automate and centralise all this. The need is for thousands 
of specialized/private wikis. Installation is just a part of a 
comprehensive management.
Thank you.

synchronizing two MW servers

I have 2 application servers behind a load-balancer that both point to
a 3rd server where the database lives.  I'm curious if there are any
best practices around keeping the two MediaWiki servers synchronized?

I found Extension:WikiSync
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiSync) but it doesn't look
like it's still developed.

I assume Wikimedia does this now, anyone know how?

Thanks
Bill

Re: script for SQLite installation

do you have any current test setups running with a mysql or any mysql
derivative? reason im asking is you can easily do then an sql dump of the
database and you have all your queries etc in the dump file. Or even better
use mysql workbench to reverse engineer the db and get it in chart form.

Re: script for SQLite installation

Is there any reason you can't use the pre-existing install methods?

Missing tests/ directory in 1.23.1-5

While looking into upgrading my 1.22.5 installation to 1.23.5, I noticed that the tests/ directory was
missing. Looking in git it is there for the REL1_23, but seems to have vanished in the tarballs for releases?

Am I missing something? or are these releases incomplete?

Sincerely confused,
-Daniel   (Us+er:AlephNull)

Have you tried using the install.php maintenance script?

script for SQLite installation

I wish to write a complete script set to install and manage small 
specialized wikis under SQLite and using the same MediaWiki code. I 
know how to create the symbolink links. I know how to generate the 
LocalSettings.php file I want. What I am missing is the script to 
generate the SQLite database and the Sysops access. Is there 
somewhere a model I could copy?
Thanks to anyone who could help!

PHP-error from code of master-source?

Hi everybody,

I'm working my way through the update-process and have arrived at the moment
where I'm looking at my own wiki-pages again. <Hurray!!!>

Now I'm trying to eliminate the error-messages mediawiki is throwing at me one
by one, but this one has me baffled:

PHP Warning:  preg_replace_callback(): Requires argument 2,
'Sanitizer::cleanUrlCallback', to be a valid callback in
/opt/lampp/htdocs/_fhbwiki/includes/Sanitizer.php on line 1477

This has me baffled because I just cleaned up the cleanUrl-function in order to
clear this error-message:

PHP Deprecated:  preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use
preg_replace_callback instead in
/opt/lampp/htdocs/_fhbwiki/includes/Sanitizer.php on line 1477

and in order to do that I replaced this line of code:

$url = preg_replace( '/[\][<>"\\x00-\\x20\\x7F]/e', "urlencode('\\0')", $url );

with this line from the master-source-code:

$url = preg_replace_callback( '/[\][<>"\\x00-\\x20\\x7F\|]/',array( __CLASS__,
'cleanUrlCallback' ), $url );

I'm no PHP-programmer but I thought that the master-source-code would be
proof-read at least and not bringing new error-messages with it... :-(
