Change url and database name of crappypasta.miraheze.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Wiki URLcrappypasta.miraheze.org

I'd like to have the url of the wiki changed to

lolpasta.miraheze.org

and the database name to

lolpastawiki

There currently is an import of pages going on in the wiki but I tought it would be best to already request this change now even if the renaming will only take place after the completion of the import. I was also told that the old url will then be available for others to use and I am fine with that.

Oops, why'd I add SSL? Meant Database

Can you please tell me what "changing the database name" means? I have a personal curiousity about it. Does it have something to do with the changing of the url or are them two separate things?

The database name is exactly what it sounds like, it is the name of the database that holds all of your wiki's data (including page contents, revisions, local users, etc). The naming scheme for wikis on Miraheze is "<subdomain>wiki", so a wiki with the url https://meta.miraheze.org/ would have the database name "metawiki". When renaming a wiki, the database is also renamed to reflect the new subdomain for the wiki, because if we were to not do this it could cause a database conflict if someone were to create a new wiki with the same subdomain that your wiki used to have.

Interesting, thanks for the explanation.

Unfortunately it seems that I can't login even in private browsing mode, is there anything else I can try? I always get the error "No active login attempt is in progress for your session."

Have you cleared all your cookies for all .miraheze.org sites?

Yes, I think I did, I can't see any cookie from .miraheze.org in my browser.

Have you tried logging in and out from login.miraheze.org at first?

It works, I tried logging out and in again on LOLPasta and got no problems, thanks.

Great! Sorry for the inconvenience.
