Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-5548) Access to modify mysql tables and php scripts for wiki.openoffice.org
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 22:02:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-5548?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13502354#comment-13502354
] 

Andrea Pescetti commented on INFRA-5548:
----------------------------------------

In this particular moment, both rbircher and imacat are unresponsive. Thousands of new spam
accounts have been created in the last few days and we need to address the problem soon and
enlarge the admin team to have better coverage in future. So jani will be joining the admin
team and also help in long-term maintenance, coordinating with existing admins.

> we (apache open office) need to maintain our media wiki site (wiki.openoffice.org) because:
> - we are under heavy spam attach
> - the version is no longer supported from mediawiki.
> The tasks to be done are:
> - upgrade to new version (requires access to change php files)
> - remove old inactive users and user created by spam attachers (requires mysql root access)
> - modify localSettings.php to disable spam attachers from creating accounts.
> - restart apache server (to activate the php changes)
> I will do these tasks, and afterwards to regular maintenance. If possible I would prefer
to have my user granted access to the items needed, and not have root access.
