Description Carl Austin Bennett 2009-08-26 18:08:57 UTC
To: Updaters Inc.
    1.16a MediaWiki Way, Wikiville 55123

The latest version of script ../maintenance/ as supplied by your organisation appears to be incomplete; the command "global $wgDatabase;" is missing from the first line of these two routines:

function do_backlinking_indices_update() {
    wfOut( "Checking for backlinking indices...\n" );
    if (!index_has_field('pagelinks', 'pl_namespace', 'pl_from') ||
        !index_has_field('templatelinks', 'tl_namespace', 'tl_from') ||
        !index_has_field('imagelinks', 'il_to', 'il_from'))
        $wgDatabase->sourceFile( archive( 'patch-backlinkindexes.sql' ) );
        wfOut( "...backlinking indices updated\n" );

function do_categorylinks_indices_update() {
    wfOut( "Checking for categorylinks indices...\n" );
    if (!index_has_field('categorylinks', 'cl_sortkey', 'cl_from'))
        $wgDatabase->sourceFile( archive( 'patch-categorylinksindex.sql' ) );
        wfOut( "...categorylinks indices updated\n" );

The result, if either of these routines happen to be called during upgrade, looks something like:

PHP Notice:  Undefined variable: wgDatabase in ...mw116a/maintenance/ on line 1012
PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function sourceFile() on a non-object in ...mw116a/maintenance/ on line 1012

The rest of the routines in this otherwise-fine Updaters Inc. product all appear to provide the "global $wgDatabase;" feature before accessing the database. Could you please add this to the two affected items?

Thank you.
