comment MediaWiki migration showing errors with old directory structure
Nothing I can see in the db (but it's a big DB).

comment MediaWiki migration showing errors with old directory structure
LocalSettings.php doesn't have a hard coded path set. I'll check the DB, but I'm FAIRLY certain it doesn't exist there. I'll get back to you shortly with that.

comment Filezilla or PuTTY: I have “Access granted” followed by “Server unexpectedly closed network connection”. How to troubleshoot?
The server does not tell the client why it is disconnecting. This is intentional and by design. This prevents the client from exploiting a potential issue.

I second dawud's statement: Being a "big" company most definitely does not ensure that.

comment ssh tunnel - how to enable timeouts?
The only keepalive that matters is the SSH connection. All machines between Host A and Host B only see an SSH connection. It does not see tunnels. It does not see that you're using vi on a file. It does not see that your tunnel is streaming the latest episode of Breaking Bad. It sees SSH. The SSH connection is the only thing that needs the keepalive. The SSH connection cannot and will not time out one of the tunnels. If the tunnel has timed out, so has the SSH connection itself.

comment Detecting upload success/failure in a scripted command-line SFTP session?
I haven't done extensive testing, but I think batch mode alters how sftp exits and what exit status it presents to you. Glad that did the trick.

comment cp command, ignore unchanged files
I want to add that you can use rsync over the network also. It's particularly easy to do so using ssh. For either the source OR destination, prepend it with user@host: and it will do just that. This will act as a replacement for scp
