SMWAdmin is a special page that provides functions for the software administrators of Semantic MediaWiki. This special page was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki Semantic MediaWiki 0.3.

Functions

The following functions are provided:

  1. Database installation and upgrade (since Semantic MediaWiki 1.0)
    This function allows to install and upgrade Semantic MediaWiki in case no shell access to the server is available. See the help page on installing Semantic MediaWiki for further information.
  2. Data repair and upgrade (since Semantic MediaWiki 1.4.0)
    This function allows to refresh and repair the data stored in the semantic backend in case no shell access to the server is available. See the help page on repairing Semantic MediaWiki's data for further information.
  3. Configuration settings (since Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.0)
    This function allows to display all parameters related to Semantic MediaWiki with their settings. See the help page on configuring Semantic MediaWiki for details on individual parameters and their settings.
  4. Object ID lookup (since Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.2)
    This function allows to retrieve more information about specific object IDs which may be useful while identifying a specific problem causing the "rebuildData.php" maintenance script to fail. See the help page on looking up Object IDs for further information.
  5. Object ID disposal (since Semantic MediaWiki 2.0)1
    This function allows to remove specific object IDs. This may be useful if a full data rebuild is not an option with a specific object ID creating a problem which causes the "rebuildData.php" maintenance script to fail. See the help page on remove Object IDs for further information. Note Note: This is an invasive action to the data store, so handle this feature with care.
  6. Announce your wiki (since Semantic MediaWiki 1.1.0)
    This function allows to publicise on "semantic-mediawiki.org" that an MediaWiki installation using Semantic MediaWiki is being used. See the help page on registering a wiki using Semantic MediaWiki for further information.
