Converting mediawiki database from postgresql to mysql/mariadb

Why to use mysql/mariadb instead of postgresql?

Here is what MediaWiki says [[1]]:

Most of the common maintenance scripts work with PostgreSQL however some of the more obscure ones might have problems.

Is PostgreSQL a good choice for MediaWiki?

Wikipedia uses MySQL so MediaWiki gets more testing on MySQL than PostgreSQL. While support for PostgreSQL is maintained by volunteers, most core functionality is working.

Challenge

Why not to use dumpBackup.php script in mediawiki? [[2]]

If you need to save only mediawiki data and pages modify history then the best and easiest way probably would be:

php maintenance/dumpBackup.php --full --include-files --uploads > /tmp/wiki.xml php maintenance/importDump.php /tmp/wiki.xml

However user accounts, user contrubutions, logs, etc will not be migrated this way.

Why not to use tools for converting postgresql databases to mysql?

Mediawiki postgresql version is quite different from mysql version. For example: some table names are different, field order, timestamp format (pg: '2015-11-01 08:42:31+00', mysql: '20151101084231'), many fields that are NULL in postgresql are not allowed to be NULL in mysql. That is why there will be issues when dumping data from postgresql and importing it to mysql.

There is a script mentioned in http://www.winterrodeln.org/trac/wiki/MediaWikiPostgresqlToMysql that should be converting postgresql database to mysql. However in my case it did not work because of the issues mentioned above (that script was written in 2009-01-16).

Mediawiki location

In this example mediawiki files root is located in /var/www/wiki.wikiname.org/htdocs/w
Web server is lighttpd. /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf contains lines:

simple-vhost.server-root = "/var/www" simple-vhost.default-host = "wiki.wikiname.org" simple-vhost.document-root = "/htdocs/" url.rewrite-once = ( "^/wiki/([^?]*)(?:\?(.*))?" => "/w/index.php?title=$1&$2", "^/wiki" => "/w/index.php", )

Disallowing editing mediawiki until database is converted

vi /var/www/wiki.wikiname.org/htdocs/w/LocalSettings.php

$wgReadOnly = 'This wiki is currently being upgraded to a newer software version.';

Preparing dump files for importing data to mysql

Making postgresql dump

su - postgres pg_dump wikidb > /tmp/wikidb-pg.dump exit

Making temporary postgresql database looking like mysql

su - postgres echo "CREATE DATABASE tmpdb ENCODING 'SQL_ASCII' LC_COLLATE='C' LC_CTYPE='C' TEMPLATE=template0;" | psql psql tmpdb < /tmp/wikidb-pg.dump exit

SQL script modifying postgresql database

For avoiding issues when importing data to mysql we need to modify mediawiki postgresql database so that it would look like mediawiki mysql database. Basically the script will make field order in pg tables like in mysql and will set non-NULL values to the fields that are not allowed to be NULL in mysql

Postgresql table pagecontent corresponds to mysql table text

Timestamp format in postgresql is different from mysql (pg: '2015-10-31 10:10:10+00', mysql: '20151031101010'). All timestamps should be converted to avoid errors like:
... Language::sprintfDate: The timestamp should be a number

for f in *.sql; do sed -i "s/'\([0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]\)-\([0-9][0-9]\)-\([0-9][0-9]\) \([0-9][0-9]\):\([0-9][0-9]\):\([0-9][0-9]\)[+-][0-9][0-9]'/'\1\2\3\4\5\6'/g" $f; done

In postgresql ipblocks table may contain records with duplicated field ipb_address. mysql requires that ipb_address field is unique. Check manually ipblocks.sql file. Delete records with duplicated field ipb_address to prevent errors like:
