Description Schnee 2005-05-19 13:20:36 UTC

it would be nice if the script that can be used to upgrade existing MediaWiki
installations (update.php) would be made web-based rather than staying as a
command-line script - not everyone who uses MediaWiki actually has shell access
to the box that it runs on. ^_~

Thanks a bunch!

update.php is a command-line alternative to running the web-based installer for 
upgrades, which has been available since 1.2.0.
Comment 2 Schnee 2005-05-20 14:20:09 UTC
The web-based installer, however, completely overwrites LocalSettings.php, which
is usually not what you want when upgrading to a newer version.

See also bug 198 for related enhancement ideas.
