Description Rich 2008-01-23 00:40:53 UTC
My wiki was working fine until the site went down tonight. When it came back up pages with apostrophes in them no longer work, with the apostrophe being replaced by a question mark in the . In the URL the apostrophe is replaced by %27.

The page shows this error message:

There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page.

I'm trying to find out whether something happened on the server such as a PHP or database upgrade. No joy so far.

Hrm, well this shouldn't happen.

Possibilities offhand:

* Corrupt database

* Someone enabled PHP's magic_quotes_runtime option or something like that
