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.
The web-based installer, however, completely overwrites LocalSettings.php, which
is usually not what you want when upgrading to a newer version.
