Old Server

  1. mysqldump -u root -p wikidb > wikidb.sql  
  2. tar -cvf wiki.tar wiki ;this is the wiki folder on document root


New Server:

  1. create database wikidb; this is inside mysql, Note that both mysql versions should be same.  
  2. grant create, select, insert, update, delete, lock tables on wikidb.* to wiki@localhost identified by 'YourPassword' ;


MediaWiki Upgrade

copy all the new files to wiki folder and then run php update.php from maintenance folder after updating AdminSettings.php

CharIndex Reverse - find occurrence starting from end of string in TSQL
Very helpful thanks! This worked for me as well, and is a little shorter. Not sure if there are drawbacks. SELECT RIGHT(@Haystack,CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,REVERSE(@Haystack))-LEN(@Delimiter))

Hi there, This looks like a great solution to get rid of spam comments. How to integrate this in Joomla 3.x? Step 2 I did in settings.xml, but no result in frontend. Kind Regards, Tibbe
