Not sure on this. Hopefully Dirk will know.

I meant to mention... it did not look like we were using any extensions, they didn't show up in the Special:Version page. Many mediawiki extensions got moved into core. The directory for extensions included these entries:










I doubt that these were used ever since the time the geeklog wiki was moved to my VPS and upgraded.


Do I need to put any of those back and try to update them?

I could not go further due to distro dependency issues (PCRE). Will let you guys know when I get a new VPS with newer underlyling software. Will probably be at least a few weeks.

Okay thanks for keeping on top of it Dan.


Let Dirk and I know when you want the DNS record updated (and to what).

The geeklog wiki is running an outdated version of mediawiki.




I started to look at upgrading to the latest release in the 1.19 LTS branch.


However, further investigation showed that 1.19 will be discontinued in May (next month).


So... I probably need to upgrade to latest and greatest.  I may also migrate to a new VPS server (same provider, just new server with more recent Linux OS installed) which would need a DNS record update to point to the new server.



I might still go ahead and do the intermediate upgrade soonish if I find a few hours of free time.



Please let me know of timing concerns, comments, considerations, etc.
