/etc/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php is generated by mediawiki's install.php script,
which is triggered by plinth's mediawiki setup action. But it's only run if
/var/lib/mediawiki-db/my_wiki.sqlite does not already exist.

I was able to re-generate /etc/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php with these steps:

$ sudo mv /var/lib/mediawiki-db/my_wiki.sqlite

$ sudo /usr/share/plinth/actions/mediawiki setup
