This is a How-To guide on how to deal with installation and removal of Flow on the Wikis.
Installing Flow on a wiki
Do not do this. Flow is not eligible for deployment to more wikis.
Uninstalling Flow from a wiki
- Ensure that all Flow boards are either transwikied or exported to wikitext (with ConvertToText) and deleted.
- Remove the wiki from flow.dblist (e.g. like this).
- Delete all pages in the Topic namespace:
$wgExtraNamespaces = 'Topic';to the config (only locally on the deployment machine, don't sync this)
$wgContentHandlers["flow-board"] = $wgContentHandlers["wikitext"];to the config (only locally on the deployment machine, don't sync this)
SELECT CONCAT('Topic:', page_title) AS page_title FROM page WHERE page_namespace=2600;and put the list of pages in a file
mwscript deleteBatch.php --wiki=<dbname;ie: eswiki> -u='<your_sysadmin_username>' -r='Uninstalling Flow' list-of-topic-pages.txt
- Remove the added config.
