Description Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-08 14:45:26 PST
For some updates to MDC we plan to do, these extensions will be needed.  These should be installed on staging once the staging upgrade to MediaWiki 1.9.x has been done and tested, so that we can work on our new breadcrumbs and other templates.
Comment 1 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2007-03-08 14:52:46 PST
Moving these two bugs into Server Operations: Projects as it is more of a project.
Comment 2 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-13 08:45:11 PDT
These extensions are at these URLs:
Comment 3 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-15 09:57:34 PDT
I'm working on adding these extensions.  StringFunctions requires the mbstring PHP extension.  Do we have that installed?  It's not part of the standard install of PHP, but is required for support of multibyte characters, so there's a fair chance we do have it.
Comment 4 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2007-03-15 13:32:21 PDT
Yes we have mbstring.
Comment 5 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2007-03-15 13:32:49 PDT
Also, I'll need to put these in the settings file when you have them ready.
Comment 6 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-15 13:39:29 PDT
OK, I've committed the extensions into the repository.  The docs for them say these lines need to be added to the settings file:

require_once( "$IP/extensions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php" );
require_once ("$IP/extensions/StringFunctions/StringFunctions.php");
Comment 7 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-15 15:44:54 PDT
I've also add the RDF extension; that needs to be hooked in as well.
Comment 8 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2007-03-15 16:02:41 PDT
These have been installed.
Comment 9 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-15 16:23:01 PDT
Did the RDF extension get switched on too?  It's been around 20 minutes and isn't showing up yet on the versions special page.
Comment 10 Jeremy Orem [:oremj] 2007-03-15 16:30:40 PDT
What is the process for installing the rdf extension?  It can't be required like the other two, because it immediately starts spitting out text.
Comment 11 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-15 17:42:28 PDT
Turns out RDF requires the RAP API extension for PHP.  There's info on that here:

Once that's installed, this is what the RDF readme says to add to the LocalSettings.php file:

  define("RDFAPI_INCLUDE_DIR", "/full/path/to/rdfapi-php/api/");
Comment 12 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2007-03-19 07:50:08 PDT
I'm going to file a separate bug for RDF since it also involves installing the PHP extension.
