Description Michael Monnerie 2007-05-14 09:31:58 UTC
I'm new to MediaWiki, so sorry if this is nonsense. I wanted to run the 
commandline script maintenance/rebuildtextindex.php but this gives me:

# php maintenance/rebuildtextindex.php
DB connection error: Access denied for user 'mw_toetschat'@'' 
(using password: YES) (

Sniffing told me there's a connect to 3306, which is MySQL, but I'm using 
PostgreSQL here. As the MediaWiki in general works, it seems there's a bug 
somewhere. I'm not a hacker, so I can't find out where's the problem.

Part of my LocalSettings.php:
$wgDBtype           = "postgres";
$wgDBserver         = "";
$wgDBname           = "<mydbname>";
$wgDBuser           = "<myuser";
$wgDBpassword       = "<mypwd>";
$wgDBport           = "5432";
$wgDBprefix         = "";

What could I do?

Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2007-05-14 20:26:29 UTC
This script is only for MySQL full text search system made it clear
with r22172.

Changing subject and marking as blocking bug 384 (postgres tracking).
Comment 2 Greg Sabino Mullane 2007-05-14 23:42:54 UTC
Closing: no script is needed to rebuild the full text indexes on Postgres, it's
all trigger based. (Thanks for the r22172 change though).
