Unfortunately, I'm unable to say how to duplicate this bug, but for some reason
unknown to me, the default skin for our internal wiki changed since my last
visit, and no changes to the wiki (no recent changes in the interim) or to any
of the files on the server (including LocalSettings.php) have been made. In my
user preferences page, MonoBook no longer appears as a known skin, even though
the monobook directory exists in the stylesheets folder on the server with all
the appropriate files. I attempted to fix the problem by uncommenting the
#$wgDefaultSkin = 'monobook';
in LocalSettings.php with no luck. For some reason, our internal wiki's skin has
suddenly become the classic skin.
Did you update your PHP version to PHP 5?
PHPTAL, the template engine used by monobook, is not working under PHP 5.
MediaWiki 1.4 will contain a version of monobook that doesn't use PHPTAL and
will work with PHP 5.

Nope, but thanks for looking into it! The version of PHP I'm running is:
PHP 4.3.6 (cgi) (built: Apr 28 2004 09:02:26)
Oddly enough, with no interventions, our internal wiki got its monobook skin
back. I'm still baffled as to why it disappeared in the first place, but I'm
pleased the monobook skin reappeared.
