Details edit

run.php file is the entry point introduced in task T99268 for running maintenance scripts. The executable maintenance/run will call it. Since MediaWiki 1.40, running a maintenance script without run.php is deprecated. It introduces the wfMaintenanceRunSetup callback.

Usage edit

./maintenance/run <script>

‎<script> - The name of the maintenance script to run. Can be given as a class name or file path. The .php suffix is optional. Paths starting with ./ or ../ are interpreted to be relative to the current working directory. Other relative paths are interpreted relative to the maintenance script directory. Dots (.) are supported as namespace separators in class names. An extension name may be provided as a prefix, followed by a colon, e.g. MyExtension:exampleScript, to indicate that the path or class name should be interpreted relative to the extension.

Advanced Usage edit

./maintenance/run [--conf|--globals|--memory-limit|--profiler|--server|--wiki] <script>

Generic maintenance parameters edit

Option/Parameter Description
--conf Location of "LocalSettings.php", if not default
--globals Output globals at the end of processing for debugging
--memory-limit Set a specific memory limit for the script, "max" for no limit or "default" to avoid changing it
--profiler The output format of the profiler, usually "text".
--server The protocol and server name to use in URLs, e.g. This is sometimes necessary because server name detection may fail in command line scripts.
--wiki For specifying the wiki ID
