      Description

      we (apache open office) need to maintain our media wiki site (wiki.openoffice.org) because:
      - we are under heavy spam attach
      - the version is no longer supported from mediawiki.

      The tasks to be done are:
      - upgrade to new version (requires access to change php files)
      - remove old inactive users and user created by spam attachers (requires mysql root access)
      - modify localSettings.php to disable spam attachers from creating accounts.
      - restart apache server (to activate the php changes)

      I will do these tasks, and afterwards to regular maintenance. If possible I would prefer to have my user granted access to the items needed, and not have root access.
