Installing Omegawiki[edit]


Hi, I am installing Omegawiki localy. It seems that in addition to what is indicated in Development, one has to include the content of wikidata/extensions/Wikidata/patches/LocalSettings.txt in LocalSettings.php. Is this the correct procedure, or did I miss an update?

Then, I am not sure if the best is to update Development, or to update

Now, I have a problem that when I search, it is not searching in the Expression namespace. If you came across the same problem, give me a hint, thanks ;-) --Kipcool 19:48, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

You are correct regarding the LocalSettings.txt file, over the next few days I will work to move this to LocalSettings.sample. To search the Expression namespace by default you will need to add
$wgSecondaryGoNamespaces = array( 16 );
to your LocalSettings.php file, this also requires a very recent version of MediaWiki (within around 50 revisions of HEAD at the current time). RobertL 21:25, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Still on my local installation, when I try to create a new user, I got:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

    SELECT * FROM `user_properties` WHERE up_user = '4' 

from within function "User::loadOptions". MySQL returned error "1146: Table 'omegawiki.user_properties' doesn't exist (localhost)".

I checked the last omegawiki-latest.sql from , and it does not create the table for user_properties. I don't know how to fix it. Any idea? --Kipcool 20:22, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

The user.sql file has not been updated to include the new user_properties table since the upgrade to MediaWiki 1.16a. For now I suggest that you create it manually by copying the table definitions for user_properties from maintenance/tables.sql and manually applying them to your database, I will endeavour to update this file over the next few days.
