DetailsEdit

doMaintenance.php file is a maintenance script to verify the most important files and run some jobs automatically.

UsageEdit

When writing a maintenance script, add RUN_MAINTENANCE_IF_MAIN to the end of file.

<?php

require_once __DIR__ . '/Maintenance.php';

class HelloWorld extends Maintenance {
	public function execute() {
		$this->output( "Hello, MediaWiki Devs!" );
	}
}

$maintClass = HelloWorld::class;
require_once RUN_MAINTENANCE_IF_MAIN;

Here RUN_MAINTENANCE_IF_MAIN loads doMaintenance.php file which autoloads MediaWiki classes and configuration to run the script smoothly.
