Description David Erosa García 2005-09-16 10:22:19 UTC

I'm trying to set up a mirror of the spanish wikipedia. I've installed mediawiki
1.5rc4 as I wanted to import a XML dump
( using the
importDump.php script. First time I discovered that my php installation couln't
open >2GB files, so I recompiled it with the -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 following
the instructions on
Apparently php can now open such files, so i retryed the import, but now it
always stops at the same point, no matter if I cat the .gz to the script or pass
the uncompressed file directly to the script:

leonov:/var/www/wiki/maintenance# php importDump.phps
100 (154.975063164 pages/sec 154.975063164 revs/sec)
2000 (124.46568431 pages/sec 124.46568431 revs/sec)

I' tried the script linked from the "Bug 2979: import script is broken (or dump
corrupted?)" ( with the same
result, also tryed the workaround mentioned in "Bug 3182: Not enough memory for
ImportDump.php" (

The php process seems not to grow in memory size anyways.

The server is a dual Xeon 3.0Ghz with 4GB RAM.

Is there any other version of the script I should try?
