Upgrading from 1.5b3 to 1.5b4

Hi,

I'm upgrading from Mediawiki 1.5b3 to 1.5b4. Is it possible to just
replace the site files or is there a database change that makes it
necessary to execute the installation procedure again ?

Thanks for your help

Re: Upgrading from 1.5b3 to 1.5b4

I have already upgraded and your comment made me realised I forgot to
run Update.php yet. It still seems to work though....

Yes it does seem to work but I don't even know what is the proper way to
upgrade a mediawiki 1.5 installation.

Install categorylinks SQL error

Using MediaWiki 1.4.7, MySQL 4.1.13, Apache 2.0.54, PHP 4.4.0, on a
FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE box, the first time I installed went fairly smoothly.
Then I realized that the installation had wiped out the cur table I'd
already inserted, and the way the new MySQL is, that meant it was
sitting around empty yet using up 8GB of space I had better uses for. So
eventually, not being a real MySQL expert, I just rm -rf the MySQL db
directory, recreate it and repop it with everything but the wiki
databases, and go back to wiki/config/index.php. This time the
installation didn't work; I get these messages, just fine up until the end:

you only need to run update.php (or the installer) from b3->b4 if you
wish 
to use the "trackbacks" feature, which requires a new table.

in general, X.Y -> X.Z (i.e. minor release) upgrades do not require any
database changes; it will "just work" if you replace the files.  this
does
not apply to beta versions, however.

major versions (X.Y -> Z.0) do require database changes; either run
maintenance/update.php from the command line, or re-run the installer.

The process should be something like:
 1/ back up your data
 2/ lock database / shutdown site
 3/ put new files from the tar.gz
 4/ run ./maintenance/update.php (that will deal with database changes)
 5/ unlock database / restart site

ORACLE_WORK

i have just merged the ORACLE_WORK branch into CVS HEAD, now that 1.5 is
branched.  this may create problems with MySQL, as i haven't tested
MySQL support extensively.  so, please be aware that things may not be
working correctly (and let us know, so they can be fixed :-)

on the other hand, MediaWiki now supports Oracle out of the box
(including installer support).

Thanks for the hint.
I guess that AdminSettings.php should contain the root password for the
mysql database ?

Re: Database Error with Search Table?

Used phpMyAdmin and fixed.  Was table corruption:

SQL:  CHECK TABLE SEARCHINDEX

Results:  Table Corrupt (didn't close table at some write)

Fixed by:

SQL:  REPAIR TABLE SEARCHINDEX
