Details edit

populateContentTables.php is a maintenance script that migrates revision data to account for database schema changes done as part of the Multi-Content Revisions project (creation of the content , content_models , slots , slot_roles tables, deprecation of the concept of content formats).

It was introduced in MediaWiki 1.32.0 (phab:T182682).

This script is run automatically by update.php and processes 500 items in a batch.

Options/Arguments edit

Option Description Required?
--table revision or archive table, or all to populate both Optional
--reuse-content Reuse content table rows when the address and model are the same.
This will increase the script's time and memory usage, perhaps significantly.
--start-revision Query group to check specifically Optional
--start-archive Use an external cluster by name Optional

Usage edit

php maintenance/populateContentTables.php [ --table| --reuse-content| --start-revision| --start-archive ]
