How to upgrade user rights to bureaucrat, sysop

Manual approach

log in to phpMyAdmin

select wikidb

select user

Find user_id of user to be promoted

select user_groups



For full powers, insert two records:



	user_id

	bureaucrat

	

	user_id

	sysop



Or you may just make the user a bureaucrat or

a sysop.

Automated

  • Special Pages
  • User rights management
  • select

sysop and/or bureaucrat

This makes nicer-looking URLs.

In httpd.conf:

Alias /wiki /path/to/your/wiki/index.php

Alias /wiki /var/www/html/aw/mediawiki/index.php

add new button to MediaWiki toolbar:

Had to edit two system files. Will probably get wiped out in updates. :o(

change wiki skin

php userOptions.php skin –old “monobook” –new “tighar”

SpecialUploadLocal

require_once(“$IP/extensions/SpecialUploadLocal/SpecialUploadLocal.php”);

Problem: it's looking for special upload php in the wrong folder.

MediaWiki has changed where that file is.

Find it, rewrite require_once in the .php looking for it.

This is where the file is that it is seeking:

get $watch declared in some #@$&%@# php component …
