Problem reported at #mediawiki
User updates 1.12 to 1.13 rerunning the install with the existing db config.
The latin1 install gets $wgDBmysql5 = true;
Collation errors when TeX is active.
It's a user error for accepting the default, but the installer should be smart enough to detect it and skip the given option or throw an error. Otherwise, the errors appear in the form of unexpected db errors on a wiki which seemed to have correctly upgraded.
Still an issue?
Platonides: Is this still valid, or can this be closed as obsolete?
We rewrote the installer in the meantime, so it's _probably_ fixed.
Okay, if there is no clear indication that this 4 1/2 year old issue still exists and as the codebase has been rewritten in the meantime, I'm going to close this as WORKSFORME for the time being. Thanks for the response!
