Description Zzzzzz 2004-12-12 01:52:28 UTC
I have set up LocalSettings.php. When I access Index.php 
in a browser the message (below) comes up. I have tried
deleting all the wiki files and uploading the original 
files, but after setting up the LocalSettings.php again, 
it still comes up with the message (below).

Your LocalSettings.php seems to be badly corrupt, and is missing the <?php ... ?> tags which tell the PHP interpreter that it is 
code, not data. You should correct this immediately, as it contains a plaintext database password. Depending on your system 
configuration, this could be a serious security breach for you.

Normally you should not create LocalSettings.php by hand, but would use the one created by the installer.

When I first installed MediaWiki, following instructions, the 
LocalSettings file didn't get made, so I searched Google and found 
somewhere that showed how to do it. Anyway what do you mean by 
putting <?php ... ?> Where do I put them.

Try 1.4beta2. Most old install problems are likely fixed.

Well, you didn't follow all the directions or else the directions were wrong. Also you need to confirm that the database was set 
up, or you'll have to do it manually.

Around the whole file. Look at all the other .php files.
Comment 4 Zzzzzz 2004-12-12 04:03:06 UTC
OK, I have uploaded 1.4beta2 MediaWiki, and opened up Index.php. The 
LocalSettings file still doesn't exist. Maybe I am not making it 
writable. To make sure I am doing it write - How do I make it writable?

Please read the installation and upgrade instructions which come as part of the
package. When you have done that, make a backup of your data (see the MySQL
backup instructions at MySQL.com). Finally, follow the instructions. If you have
problems after that please report the exact error messages you encounter.

I haven't got any data that needs to be backed up. I have uploaded 
1.4beta2, how do I fix the problem of the LocalSettings file not 
getting created?

Since you cannot describe what you've done, provide what error 
messages you encountered in the installation, or list the installation 
information which the installer requests that you provide when asking 
for help, there is nothing we can do to help you.

Please read the documentation, follow the directions in detail, and if you 
still have problems send a post to the mediawiki-l list describing, 
exactly, in detail, what steps you followed, what problems and error 
messages you encountered, and how, exactly, your results differed from 
the expected results. You will provide some details of your server's 
configuration, and you will list which instructions you have followed or 
diverged from, exactly.

If you do not do these things, I can guarantee that we will never be able 
to provide you with any help beyond asking you to educate 
yourself, follow the directions, and provide detailed diagnostic 
information if something goes wrong.

This bug report is CLOSED, since the problem is one you created yourself 
by not following the directions and randomly doing things without any 
understanding of what you were doing.

Well it is fixed now so I don't need any more help, thank you.
