Details edit

migrateActors.php is a maintenance script that migrates actors from pre-1.31 columns to the actor table.

$wgActorTableSchemaMigrationStage needs to be set to MIGRATION_WRITE_NEW or MIGRATION_NEW for the script to do the migration.

The actors are finally stored in the column actor_name in the actor table.

To improve performance during the run-time of this script, for the table revision, a temporary table named revision_actor_temp is being used during the migration.

This table will be merged with the table revision again in the future.

In order for this script to work properly, you first should run cleanupUsersWithNoId.php .
