Description Xin Wang 2014-01-27 05:46:42 UTC
As described in manual[1], $wgUpgradeKey should be commented, but LocalSettings.php generated by 1.22.1 installer leaves it uncommented.

Not sure about the behaviour in master and other versions.

As far as I can tell, this was intentionally changed by Tim in 2010. Perhaps the documentation is simply out of date or misleading?

Thanks for reporting this!

Fixed in <$wgUpgradeKey&diff=892002&oldid=629317>.

As far as I can tell, the setting was not commented out in any released
version of MediaWiki, because of r78437 (95f14f01560d), which merged
r78118 (31eae6a575c1) into REL1_17 prior to the 1.17.0 release.
