Description Mark A. Hershberger 2013-01-31 21:53:19 UTC
The solution to [[mw:Thread:Project:Support desk/Maintenance Scripts and Sqlite]] ended up being enabling sqlite in the  php-cli.ini file.  It wasn't clear from the error message that the SQLite functions didn't exist in the CLI configuration even though they exist in the Web configuration.

Error messages from the failed DB connections should at least say that the necessary DB connection function's don't exist if they are missing.

Even better, from a usability POV, would be to say that perhaps the CLI config doesn't match the Web config.

Somehow autolinking didn't work, hence URL:

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.
