changing sign in message

Hi

I've found the system messages for changing some of the messages on the
sign in account creation page, but I can't seem to find where the message
about the statistics is generated. The one that says

Sitename is made by people like you.

Number of edits

number of pages

number of contributors

I need to get rid of this message since it's grossly wrong on my wiki. I
used a special php script to import and create lots of pages. But,
unfortunately, we didn't write the script right since everything works but
the statistics have never been right. I can live with the statistics being
wrong, but hate to confuse people on signup with statistics that don't made
sense.

Thanks

Assuming you mean the sidebar when you talk about the "navigation pane," I have the following actually in
the sidebar:

		• MediaWiki:Sidebar|Change this menu!

So now the sidebar has a link showing on every page for changing the sidebar.

To initially edit the sidebar, you need to go to:

	http://www.YourDomainName.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Sidebar

Then you can add the line above.

Every non-existing article ín brand new Namespace redirect to default namespace

I created*) a new namespace "historisk", as an archive for articles which are no longer relevant, but kept
for historical reasons. 

   define("NS_FOO", 500);
   define("NS_FOO_TALK", 501);
   $wgExtraNamespaces[NS_HISTORISK] = "Historisk";
   $wgExtraNamespaces[NS_HISTORISK_TALK] = "Historisk_talk";   // underscore required. use it to
separate all words in the title of namespace
   $wgContentNamespaces[] = 500; 

But I must be missing something since "[[historisk:newarticle]]" (no articles exist in that
extranamespaces yet and it happens no matter which articlename I enter) keeps redirecting to
"[[newarticle]]" prior to the first edit, right after I enter the URL 

*) http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Using_custom_namespaces


Did I miss something obvious or otherwise?

For what it's worth, the Admin Links extension includes an 'Edit Sidebar' link.

Reset MediaWiki password without email

hi,all
       I have a question of how to reset MediaWiki password without email.I
post it in stackoverflow, but maybe it is be better asked here.

     We set up a MediaWiki server for organizing docs.One of our customers
forget his password.We need to reset the password for him.

In the MediaWiki docs
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Resetting_passwords> ,there are three
ways to do it:

First is to reset by email. Since we do not have a mail server,we can't
done with it.

Second is using changePassword.php, we try it. But we found other account
can be changed successfully,but not this account. After the script runs,
the new password is still not working.

Third is using direct database modification,since our version is 1.22.
still other account can be changed, but not this account. After update the
database,the user cannot login in with new password. sql as foolow:

UPDATEuserSET user_password = CONCAT(':B:somesalt:',
MD5(CONCAT('somesalt-', MD5('somepass')))) WHERE user_name = 'someuser';

We have no idea why is this happen? Will be MediaWiki bug? Is there any log
that I can check?  Is anyone have a idea?

thank you very much!

Scribunto questions

MW 1.23.3
PHP 5.4.32
MySQL 5.5.39
Lua 5.1.5

Yesterday on a wiki I administer, pages utilizing Lua modules began
producing the following script error:

Lua error: Connot create process: proc_open (/dev/null): failt to open
stream: Operation not permitted

And similarly, the system log file is full of this PHP Warning:

PHP Warning:  proc_open(/dev/null): failed to open stream: Operation
not permitted in
.../extensions/Scribunto/engines/LuaStandalone/LuaStandaloneEngine.php
on line 211

I know the permissions on /dev/null are correct.  Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks
Bill

Archiving articles to another Wiki based on category or template

Instead of deleting Wiki articles which are not valid any longer, but are kept for historical reasons, I
want to move those articles away from the current Wiki. Historical articles  could contain
[[category:histocal]] and I imagine that those articles could be moved automatically to another Wiki,
based on this category, (or alternatively to another namespace, but this would not be read-only).

How do I accomplish this?

I am currently running Mediawiki version 1.20.4
