No changes

I need to proceed this method
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgLanguageCode

But I have no p[privileges to do this

I've looked at the documentation as we should be doing that when you change the option and I see:

In MediaWiki 1.8 or older, if you change this after installation, you should run the maintenance/rebuildmessages.php script to rebuild the user interface messages (MediaWiki namespace). Otherwise, you will not see the interface in the new language, or a mix of the old and new languages. Note that running that script will override any custom interface messages you may have created.

@John: do we need to run that?

This was released over 13 years ago, it’s not needed

Wiki displays in Arabic for me and $wgLanguageCode is set to ar.

ULS is setting the interface to English for you, which is why it is displaying in English
