This is our documentation for upgrading mediawiki:https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/mediawiki/#how-to-upgrade-mediawiki
Could you try to follow it and let us know if it works for you?
Thank you David. I saved the link.
@davidg Can you please mention this to https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/mediawiki/#how-to-upgrade-mediawiki ? I think this is the preferred way to backup MediaWiki as it uses the programs by MediaWiki itself:
Thank you for the information. I'll forward this information to our documentation team and they will review the information.
I checked into this approach but it seems the approach already in our docs is also the one recommended by MediaWiki's official docs.
