Description Mark A. Hershberger 2010-12-29 21:11:39 UTC

 * The user is upgrading their MW install and, ignorantly, erases their LS.php
 * The database, where all the "important" stuff is found, is left untouched.

New Installer will see the DB and upgrade it.  However, $wgUpgradeKey and $wgSecretKey will both be set to empty values (i.e. "") in the LS.php which is made available for downloading.

Assigning to Chad for now so I can track it.
Comment 2 Siebrand Mazeland 2011-03-20 19:32:27 UTC
Bump importance because this is a 1.17 blocker.
Comment 3 Chad H. 2011-03-29 17:06:39 UTC
