Description Andre Costa 2005-11-07 00:29:46 UTC
I am tryng to upgrade our 1.4.0 installation, which uses iso8859-1 to 1.5.2. I
ran maintenance/upgrade1_5.php and, apparently, all went fine (I have its
output, if it will help). The end result however is that chars like çáàé all
were replaced by ','.

Did I miss any step?
Comment 1 Andre Costa 2005-11-07 00:45:51 UTC
To make things worse: content on pages accessed through links that had iso8859-1
chars on it just disappeared. Labels for URLs show with those ',', but the URL
has been encoded like 


(wich should read "Migração_para_versão 1.5"). Clicking on the new URL leads to
an empty page (with "(There is currently no text in this page)" message);
clicking on the new URL


leads to an empty page with action=edit.

All iso8859-1 encoded URLs are listed as dead-end pages.

Until I figure out where this content is going, I am stuck with 1.4.0... (we got
lots of content that we cannot afford to miss). Any help will be much appreciated.

I advise reading the mediawiki-l mailing list archives from late Summer 2005
through to the end of that year, and if no solutions match, taking the issue
there yourself.
