  • Check out this interesting bug - the picture is not updating when new version of a picture is uploaded. The next to last picture is the latest one - but the image that shows up shows the older picture:

Wiki Outstanding Items

  • Get proper sidebar on new wiki
  • Speed up wiki response
  • Get main page up
  • Approve users manually
  • Learn how to navigate between instructionals view and regular wiki view
  • After all formatting is done - first update database for last time - and swith DNS record at Dreamhost

Main OSE blog, Factor e Farm,, old Forum

  • Other databases have different logins - fef wp site, opensourcewarehouse wp, old forum in vanilla
  • wp-config.php has the password info to find other databases -
  • localsettings.php has initial settings for wiki software. We had that password already. Read only vs. write only login was shown.

We got so far as to getting the database for the fef site, by extracting password from the wp-config. We copied to new Hetzner. We archived also the entire fef wordpress database file and working directory into one archive and moved it to the new Hetzner.

Next steps are to move main ose wordpress, and the wp database. And finally look up old forum database password, and then move that.

Ok. Bye.

Let's fix up the new Hetzner - how to make it look good.

Changing license information at bottom of page from 3 to 4:


1. Log onto the server via ssh (assuming that you have the hetzner key in your .ssh folder, named as shown below): $ ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa-hetzner -p 222 -l osemain

2. Change to the "public_html/w" folder and edit the file "LocalSettings.php": osemain@dedi978:~ cd public_html/w osemain@dedi978:~$ nano LocalSettings.php 3. Change the text from 3.0: $wgRightsUrl = ""; $wgRightsText = "CreativeCommons by-sa3.0"; to 4.0: $wgRightsUrl = ""; $wgRightsText = "CreativeCommons by-sa4.0"; I just changed it for you using the steps above.

Need to enable email capture from wiki registrations. Currently, the email is lost after registration is approved.

Larger than 50MB files can't be uploaded still - trying the Cold Saw zipped CAD file upload.

Thu Sep 10, 2015


It appears to delete all attachments after the user account is confirmed, by an automated maintenance script.

In the database, it holds a record of the file while the account is pending, but afterward, there is nothing about it in the database.

I haven't found where it keeps the files meanwhile. It appears to encrypt the file name, as I see two values for its name, but not the file itself: 82a8f59a58588754c6ac4a8016c581ee3d37703f.pdf and 150622_CV_EN.pdf The weird thing is that when I click on the file name "150622_CV_EN.pdf", it somehow finds it. Weird.

Example - - upon registration, his resume - I clicked on it - and got it. But the second time I clicked on it, it was a bad link - .

Account registration fields - where to find them? When a person registers, there are other fields filled in, such as contact info. How to find this once a user is approved? Further, the uploaded CV - when clicked upon - it was a broken link but link was blue. Status: not resolved.

Sat Aug 22, 2015

Are Terms of Service visible upon a person registering? This refers to a Contributor Agreement. With this said - how do we find a person's profile and CV that they submit upon registration? That is critical to Wiki Culture and Collaborative Literacy. Status: not resolved

Had an error -
- and Tom fixed it. He set the upload directory to the same as the photo upload directory. BTW: This setting is made in the file: /usr/home/osemain/public_html/w/includes/DefaultSettings.php. "I also document my changes in the file with the original lines intact so they can easily be returned to original settings."
