Running the following from a cron to update the mediawiki search index:
cd /export/web/cora/intranet; php /usr/share/mediawiki/maintenance/updateSearchIndex.php -q
PHP Notice: Undefined variable: DIR in /usr/share/mediawiki/maintenance/commandLine.inc on line 185
A copy of your installation's LocalSettings.php
must exist and be readable in the source directory.

Hi, this is due to a Fedora-only patch that we're discussing in bug 484855. I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of that bug for now so that we can centralize discussion there, feel free to reopen if I'm mistaken in doing this.

Do not overwrite $DIR when contains correct value from config.php
This bug prevents database update after upgrade form 1.14.x version which leads to non-working History and more. Just viewing works so this is a serious trouble.
I tested mediawiki-1.15.1-50.fc11
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
