Move Mediawiki data to new image

Hi everyone!
i run a container of MediaWiki, i already filled it with some data, the mysql database is not in another image, everything is inside one container…
I saw the MediaWiki released the version 1.35 and i would like to move the data to a new image… anyone knows how to move all my data from a container with mediawiki image ver 1.34?
In the MediaWiki website i see i need to run some commands that in the image are not installed like “mysqldump”.
Thank you in advance!

The basic strategy for moving your wiki is as follows:
Back up the source wiki’s page data.
Back up the source wiki’s media files.
Copy the backup files to your new server.
Import the page data into the destination wiki.
Import the media files into the destination wiki.
