Description Diego Oubina 2007-10-06 15:43:15 UTC
The path to my new mediawiki is
but when I try to save something, I get a "Server not found" message, and the url becomes http://funbox/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

By looking at both of the urls above you can see that obviously it is not finding it because there is a problem in the path which changed from to funbox. (at least I think this is the problem)  

I have tried changing all the path variables I can think of with no success. 
Assistance is greatly appreciated.

The same problem happens when I try to use the "go" button below the search field.

Your web server config is broken. MediaWiki fails to get the host name of your server.

To work around this problem, you have to change your LocalSettings.php

Find the line that says

  include_once( "DefaultSettings.php" );

and put the following in the *next* line:

  $wgServerName = '';

Thank you for the prompt response! 

I cannot find the line that says include_once( "DefaultSettings.php" );

The closest things I have found is require_once( "includes/DefaultSettings.php" );

Please advice!

That's the line he means.
