I've updated to the latest MediaWiki version this evening but it proved a messy upgrade. In the past it was enough to simply untar the newer version over the old one and run an update script (as per Manual:Upgrading ), but they've apparently shuffled some files around and caused breakage this time around. I've set everything back up under a clean install, but if anyone notices something not working as before let me know.
