Table of Contents

The rebuildPropertyStatistics.php maintenance script rebuilds the property usage statistics on special page "Statistics". The setting was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.0 and currently only works if the configuration parameter $smwgDefaultStore is set to SMWSQLStore3 (= default setting), i.e. SPARQL stores are currently not supported.

Important Note

  • If SMW is not installed in its standard path then the "MW_INSTALL_PATH" environment variable must be set. See README in the maintenance directory.
