Wiki completely unaccessible, database error
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Our wiki has been down for a while now (, I'm not sure if a member of staff from our company reported it; if so I apologise for duplicating the request. We get the error:

MediaWiki internal error.

Original exception: [9b2857e43df3bf67ab79e644] 2018-11-07 16:13:45: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError"

Exception caught inside exception handler.

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; and $wgShowDBErrorBacktrace = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.

Interestingly, if I try to access a page that doesn't exist, it manages to load (with the appropriate graphics):

'There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, search the related logs, or create this page.'

If I click on special pages it loads the general page, but instead of data I get:

Database error

A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.
[6561460c9e4ad5e5834e25a7] 2018-11-07 16:16:31: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError"

My apologies for setting the priority as 'High', but it seemed appropriate as we have no functionality.

Kind regards,

The database was missing the "actor" table. We have fixed this by inserting the sql for this table.
