Description Tanvir Rahman 2011-09-22 15:01:48 UTC
Please create the chapter wiki, Wikimedia Bangladesh. The creation of this chapter is currently under processing. A chapter wiki is needed for online collaboration among volunteers.

Primary site language: Bengali (bn)
Site name: Wikimedia Bangladesh

Other settings will be as usual like any normal Wikimedia sites. Feel free to ask question (about settings or anything) if you have any. See also:


Thanks in advance!

Translation for Project and project talk namespaces:

Project --> উইকিমিডিয়া বাংলাদেশ
Project talk --> উইকিমিডিয়া বাংলাদেশ আলোচনা

The logo of the new wiki should be this:

A SVG version is also available:
Comment 3 Rob Halsell 2011-10-07 14:05:08 UTC
Tanvir,  You need to link to a logo that is the proper size.  Those are far too large is my understanding.  Otherwise the project is not yet done, and I have to escalate it to a DEV due to script issues.  

Initilizesettings is updated, along with DNS.

The rest of this is pretty much notes for our use in setting this up:

Upon running the script, I get the following:

robh@fenari:/home/wikipedia/common/wmf-deployment$ mwscript addwiki.php --wiki=aawiki bn wikimedia bdwikimedia
$wgVersionNumber is not set, please use MWScript.php wrapper.
robh@fenari:/home/wikipedia/common/wmf-deployment$ mwscript addwiki.php  bn wikimedia bdwikimedia
wikiversions.cdb has no version entry for `bn`.

Assigning ticket to Aaron, as this is due to HET deploy changes that he made, under advisement from Reedy.

The DNS change has been made, so this is no longer an ops blocking issue.  Any dev with deployment rights can now push new wikis.

That being said, whoever fixes this script, NEEDS to update
Comment 4 Rob Halsell 2011-10-07 14:07:47 UTC
Oh, in addition, the apache config changes have been made and rolled live.  Basically only addwiki and the other remaining steps (minus dns) that come after it on the how to add a wiki page need to be done.
Comment 5 Tanvir Rahman 2011-10-07 14:13:39 UTC
Rob, what is the proper size of the logo? Like this one: ? If so, then I can just reduce the size.
Comment 6 Aaron Schulz 2011-10-07 19:19:33 UTC
Het Deploy problem fixed in r99231.

Running that addwiki command I get:
aaron@fenari:~$ mwscript addwiki.php --wiki=aawiki bn wikimedia bdwikimedia
Creating database bdwikimedia for bn.wikimedia (বাà¦à¦²à¦¾)

A database error has occurred.  Did you forget to run maintenance/update.php after upgrading?  See:

Comment 7 Rob Halsell 2011-10-07 19:30:21 UTC

Correct, you need to reduce the resolution and file size to match the standard logo specifications.

Otherwise we are still actively working on getting this project deployed for you guys.  The logo is not in any shape or form holding this up.  The background information is we recently made some major changes to our method of deploying code across our cluster, and this project just happens to be the lucky first new project addition since the change.

Rest assured, we are actively trying to get this online for you guys =]

Here is the logo with reduced size:

Thank you very much for your effort.

Add it to the interwiki map, and then request and interwiki map update to the cluster

On there are listed only interwikis like "[[:wmde:]]", "[[:wmpl:]]", interwikis like "[[:de:]]", "[[:pl:]]" not exist there, but are working.

So shall I add to interwiki map [[:bd:]], or [[:wmbd:]], or both?

I think both can be added.
Comment 15 Tanvir Rahman 2012-03-14 11:30:45 UTC
Resolved. I added only [[:wmbd:]] in the interwiki map. Rather not using [[:bd:]] as WMBD wiki is not a content wiki.
