Wiki software update - MediaWiki 1.27.1

Post by Ian McIntosh » Sun Nov 13, 2016 7:20 pm

The SJTAG wiki has been updated to MediaWiki 1.27.1. This is the new "Long Term Support" strand, so should do us for some time.

The update was not uneventful for two reasons: Firstly, I made a typo by omitting to enter the name of the default "skin" of the wiki in the settings file with a capital letter - it took some time to spot that. More significantly, a legacy setting that goes back to when the wiki was first installed was limiting the amount of memory available and caused bizarre looking errors that stopped the upgrade. It seems that issue was first recorded for Mediawiki 1.15.1 so it's a surprise that it hasn't affected us long before now!
