Details edit

Prescribes whether MediaWiki should log the IP addresses of its editors in recentchanges.rc_ip. Although there is no interface in the standard MediaWiki package for retrieving this information, it can be accessed using extensions; a database administrator can also run an SQL query to retrieve the IP addresses.

Current versions of the CheckUser extension do not rely on this setting. CheckUser stores its data in a separate cu_changes table.

Autoblock use it to automatically block the more recent IP used by a user who is blocked.
