Restoring MediaWiki from Backup

Moving a Wiki

Lessons learned after performing a not500 export and a now510 import:

  • The wiki users carry passwords over (as expected, they're stored in the database).
  • MySQL export/import went fine:
mysqldump -h localhost -u <old-user> -p --default-character-set=binary <old-database> > novaordis-wiki.sql
mysql -u <new-user> -p <new-database> < novaordis-wiki.sql
  • Only the "image" content need to be transferred, and I needed to restore ownership to apache:apache and run
chcon -R -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t ./images
