Mediawiki 1.10 and PG 8.3 upgrade

JPLapham
Hello all,

I'm sure I did something wrong during my upgrade of mediawiki from
Postgresql 8.2 to 8.3.  Any help on how to recover would be appreciated.

Possible useful info:
OS: Fedora 9
Postgresql: PostgreSQL 8.3.1 on x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu
Mediaiwiki: mediawiki-1.10.4-39.fc9.x86_64

My mediawiki pages are loading, but when I try to edit them, I get this
error message:

A database error has occurred Query: INSERT INTO pagecontent
(old_id,old_text,old_flags) VALUES [snip] ERROR: text search
configuration "default" does not exist CONTEXT: PL/pgSQL function
"ts2_page_text" line 3 at assignment

Backtrace:

I would like to say thanks to the people that put in so much time and
effort in developing tsearch2 (and postgresql too), your work is greatly
appreciated.  However, I have never had a recent postgresql upgrade work
seemlessly, and it is almost always due to issues with tsearch2.  :(

While searching the internet for magic recipes on how to perform these
upgrades that involve tsearch2, I find long complex instruction sets
detailing brain-numbingly complex operations (hand edit the schema!):

http://julien.danjou.info/blog/index.php/post/2008/05/19/Upgrading-mediawiki-from-PostgreSQL-82-to-83

Also, I have found this blog entry from Greg Mullane which makes it all
seem so simple: (Note Tom Lane's comment, which seems to directly relate
to the error message I am seeing).

http://people.planetpostgresql.org/greg/index.php?/archives/123-MediaWiki-is-Postgres-8.3-compatible.html

These are just a 2 examples, there are others.  The one common thread
shared by all the instructions are that they say different things.  How
are we, Joe PostgreSQL users on the street, supposed to know which
instructions to follow?  Have I (very possible) missed some official
PostgreSQL instructions?  How do we go about triaging tsearch2 problems?

That would be a question for mediawiki people not PostgreSQL people.

You could start by giving us PostgreSQL output, not mediawiki output. Up
your logging level in the postgresql.conf, reload, and give us a little
more context.

Here are the docs on Tsearch:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/textsearch.html

Which is decidedly different from 8.2 to 8.3.

Here are the docs on logging:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/runtime-config-logging.html

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake

There isn't a "default" configuration in 8.3, unless you make one named
that.

I haven't personally tried that procedure with MediaWiki, though.

Okay, thanks for the pointer.  I don't know, it just makes my head hurt
to read all the documentation on tsearch2.  I guess I am just not smart
enough to figure this out.

Just a random examples from the textsearch-migration page:

-Text search configuration setup is completely different now...There is
not currently any automated support for converting an existing custom
configuration for 8.3; you're on your own here.  Ouch!

-In thesaurus configuration files, stop words must be marked with ?."  I
don't know what any of that means, and to be honest with you, I don't
want to know.

Okay, I'll go back and re-read all this and try to figure it out.

yeah - upgrades with tsearch2 have always been a bit of a problem - this
is one of many reasons why tsearch2 got fully integrated into the
backend starting with 8.3.

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/textsearch-migration.html has
a some discussion - and also see the backwards compatibility module
provided in contrib/tsearch2.

Okay, makes sense.  It just seemed to me that in previous upgrades I
have done, the mediawiki people complained that these problems were due
to changes made in postgresql's tsearch2 setup.

Also, a lot of the instructions do seem to be very postgres-oriented
(for example: hand editting of the pgdump output, etc), not much to do
on the mediawiki side of things.  Other apps besides mediawiki seem to
have similar problems, or maybe a better word is upgrade complications.

Okay, I'll work on that.

You'll need to get a particular revision of MediaWiki that is PG 8.3  
compatible:

http://people.planetpostgresql.org/greg/index.php?/archives/123- 
MediaWiki-is-Postgres-8.3-compatible.html

Once that's done, it works fine (at least for me).

Did you run 'php update.php' from the maintenance directory after you
upgraded? That's the canonical way to fix things up, and if it did
not fix your tsearch2 problems for you, please file a bug about it:

If upgrading MediaWiki to a version that supports postgres 8.3, another option could be to export from the old db as XML (using the Special:Export page) then import once the new wiki's installed with a blank database - that's what I'm going to try, I've had problems upgrading MediaWiki databases in the past, possibly due to customised installations. This should hopefully render any database issues irrelevant.

You need to know the names of the pages to export, but could get those with a simple query direct to the database like

SELECT pagetitlecolumn FROM tablewherepagetitlesarestored;

You can also use the dumpBackup.php tool in the maintenance directory.
The XML this dumped does not include the mwusers table, so it's
not entirely helpful.

I spoke too soon when I said earlier all one needs is php update.php.
There are some serious tsearch2 issues that prevent you from dumping
the old database and importing into the new version, even with the
tsearch2 compatibility stuff. I'm creating some workarounds, and
will report back. Doing a --data-only dump and creating the schema
anew from maintenance/postgres/tables.sql should work, although
not if you've made any schema changes, obviously.

Rather than try to document my experiences here in an email thread,
I created a wiki page to document the database upgrade process in general
for MediaWiki. Please look it over and edit it as needed:
