New try at the upgrading. I thought that the test wiki's inconsistent state could be due to that the shared tables need to be disabled during the upgrade or there will be trouble. So I made a copy of the shared tables and uploaded them into the test wiki before running the upgrade and the test wiki got up just fine. Now that I have tested that mw:Extension:Wikibase works in the test wiki and editing and uploading work on both wikis I'm happy to say that the wiki family is happily at the newest Mediawiki version 1.33

In the morning wrote this ticket to the Wikimedia Phabricator ticketing system titled 'Unable to upgrade wiki family of 2 wikis from 1.32.0 to 1.33.0 due to DB structure being different than the upgrade.php expects' and then various people helped and expert w:User:Anomie provided SQL to fix the issue of the ticket. Big thanks to Anomie for single-handedly putting the database of the test wiki into a consistent and upgradeable state.

Not all was well yet. Running the upgrades on the 2 wikis of the wiki family this development wiki was fine, but the test wiki ended up in an inconsistent state e.g. Main Page missing, revisions missing.

  • Made backups and attempted the upgrade again. Did not work. Got help from #mediawiki. Making a Phabricator ticket was suggested by duesen @ #mediawiki. Thank you mw:User:Duesentrieb for all the help.

  • Problem with the upgrade. There are two wikis in this wiki family and the test wiki won't run the upgrade. Rolled back both upgrades and going to think about how to sort the situation. Jukeboksi (talk) 21:41, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Saw a small piece on Open Food Facts on France24 a couple of days ago and started an article on it. It is a copyleft effort for "foods and beverages only"-policy and focus on health stuff. I have installed the Android app and it looks like a fun way to contribute as everything is under a copyleft license. Jukeboksi (talk) 13:06, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Bought a new VPS from Hetzner Online AG into their Helsinki DC. The advantages of the new server are that there is substantially more RAM and the disk is also bigger and it is blazing fast NVMe and not HDD, like at the old hosting guys. Will migrate all Consumerium wikis and sites soon-ish. Jukeboksi (talk) 21:13, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Consumium free social media instances are now migrated from the old virtual server in Netherlands to a new virtual server in Germany. Cost of running them went substantially down and resources went up. The only negative thing about the new server is that the hosting company does not use renewable electricity, but the fact that the data center has ground water cooling mitigates this a bit as it saves a lot of electricity.

  • If someone else is wondering about a few edits happening which show a difference of few bytes negative in the Recent Changes, but when you click the diff it says that there is no difference: I was naturally worried when I saw the first occurrence of this and asked around in #mediawiki and the explanation is that around Mediawiki version 1.10 the line termination characters were reformed and thus these weird edits can happen when someone edits an article in a way that replaces the old line termination character with the new, shorter, ones and then Recent Changes sees a difference in the size, but the diff does not look at how the lines are terminated and concludes that nothing has been changed.

  • Upgraded this wiki and the Test wiki (the only 2 members of a wiki family) to the latest stable Mediawiki (Release notes for 1.32). There was some trouble when upgrading the test wiki with 'php update.php --wiki=testwiki' exited with an error stating that the updater tried to update the wrong database (!), but after banging my head at the keyboard for a while I figured out this may be due to the test wiki sharing some tables from this development wiki and that indeed was the case. After I commented out the shared tables in LocalSettings.php the upgrade run just fine. Jukeboksi (talk) 21:21, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Upgraded my semi-private study wiki to latest stable Mediawiki (1.32.0) and now proceeding to do the same for this development wiki. Downtime of maximum of few minutes expected. Jukeboksi (talk) 18:53, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Extensions of Wordpressen at and updated. Jukeboksi (talk) 13:05, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Apologies for the fact that the email sending system is broken. Probably due to that it uses encrypted connection to the SMTP-server with authentication and I (probably) changed the password and forgot to update it in LocalSettings.php. I will work to fix this issue today. Jukeboksi (talk) 12:44, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
UPDATE: Email issue resolved and email is now working as expected. Once again sorry about that it was broken (by me). Jukeboksi (talk) 12:50, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
