The MaintenanceShell extension provides access to the maintenance scripts via a Special Page.

Installation

edit
  • Download and move the extracted MaintenanceShell folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/MaintenanceShell
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MaintenanceShell' );
    
  • Configure the user rights and grant yourself access to that group from a bureaucrat account.
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration

Parameters

edit
$wgMaintenanceShellPath
By default the extension lists maintenance scripts of MediaWiki core. Change this path to a different directory if you'd like to list different scripts instead (of a certain extension for example).

User rights

edit
maintenanceshell
This right (for security reasons not assigned to any group by default) grants the right to use Special:MaintenanceShell.
// Grant access to Special:MaintenanceShell to the "developer" user group:
$wgGroupPermissions['developer']['maintenanceshell'] = true;

# Or

// Create a new "maintenanceshell" user group for Special:MaintenanceShell:
$wgGroupPermissions['maintenanceshell']['maintenanceshell'] = true;
