Using the upgrade script wiki:DevelopmentServer#Mediawiki

The update script first does a backup of the !MySQL database, this took 40mins to run on kiwi and resulted of a load average of 15... While it was running I also did some work on ticket:393

mediawiki-upgrade 1.18.1

After the upgrade https://wiki.dev.transitionnetwork.org/Special:Version reports:

MediaWiki 1.18.1
SyntaxHighlight (Version (r113615)
FCKeditor (Version 1.0.1) (r113615)

The live server before the upgrade:

MediaWiki 1.17.0

One issue was a new gpg key was needed, live server upgrade:

gpg --recv-key 9D3BB7B0

chown -R www-data:www-data /web/wiki.transitionnetwork.org/www/cache/
