To do during ansible script creation


First, backup the database. The "set history +o" disables the shell history to avoid storing passwords:

set +o history
sudo mysqldump --user=<user> --password=<password> <database> > /var/backup/<database>/<database>-`date +%d-%m-%y`.sql
sudo mysqldump --user=<user> --password=<password> <database> --xml > /var/backup/<database>/<database>-`date +%d-%m-%y`.xml
set -o history

Then download and extract the release:

cd /tmp
wget https://releases.wikimedia.org/mediawiki/1.35/mediawiki-1.35.1.tar.gz
tar -xvzf mediawiki-1.35.1.tar.gz

Copy the existing data and settings into the new release:

sudo cp -r wiki/LocalSettings.php wiki_1.35/
sudo cp -r wiki/images/ wiki_1.35/
sudo cp -r wiki/extensions/* wiki_1.35/extensions/
sudo cp -r wiki/resources/assets/logo.png wiki_1.35/resources/assets/
sudo cp -r wiki/skins/* wiki_1.35/skins/

Then switch directory

mv wiki wiki_old && mv wiki_1.35 wiki


cd maintenance/
sudo php update.php
