The "updateEntityCountMap.php" maintenance script allows to do mass populating of database field "smw_countmap" in the "smw_object_aux" database table when initially upgrading to Semantic MediaWiki 3.2.0Released on an unknown date and compatible with unknown versions of MediaWiki. or later and only has to be run once. As soon as you have successfully upgraded it will no longer be necessary to use it. The maintenance script was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 3.2.0Released on an unknown date and compatible with unknown versions of MediaWiki..1

Note[edit]

During an upgrade to Semantic MediaWiki 3.2.0Released on an unknown date and compatible with unknown versions of MediaWiki. and later the newly created database field "smw_countmap" in the "smw_object_aux" database table initially needs to be populated with data. However due to the sheer size of the "smw_object_aux" database table the update of database field "smw_countmap" could hog resources making maintenance script "update.php" (MediaWiki.org) or alternatively maintenance script "setupStore.php"Allows to set up the data backend/store run for a considerable time. To mitigate this the initial population using this maintenance script is run in a second step during the upgrade.

The need for running this maintenance script is visibly displayed by an error message on every page of the wiki informing that the wiki's system administrator still has to run the script to complete the upgrade. Once this maintenance script was run as a follow up to "update.php" or alternatively "setupStore.php" the will no longer appear and the upgrade of the software was completed.
