My wiki is installed and works fine if you go directly to the URL: http://olap.ivelina.com/index.php5
However the root folder displays a blank index page.
I am running the following:
MediaWiki verion 1.11.1
Platform Type: Debian
MySQL Version: 5.0.45
PHP Version: 4.4.7
Any help would be much appreciated.
You don't appear to have any rewrite rules/whatnot in either Apache or .htaccess, which is why you're getting this issue.
See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Short_URL for more information on getting that redirection to work.
I just checked the PHP error log and this is what is repeats over and over for each time i tried to refresh the index page. I've replaced the path to my root folder with a simple "wiki_root_folder" for readability:
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function: headers_list() in wiki_root_folder/includes/OutputHandler.php on line 71
PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in wiki_root_folder/includes/Exception.php on line 160
PHP Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/php_sessions) in Unknown on line 0

I'm sorry to be a pain but what am I redirecting and why? Shouldn't my root directory just work right off the bat? I've read that page with the Short URL instructions but i'm not interested in pretty URLs at the moment so i didn't think i needed to set that up.
I must be confused about something. Can you please explain with an example of the correct syntax.
I should mention that I am installing this on a purchased hosting server and therefore I don't have access to the configuration of it. I may be able to ask the IT support of the company to do something for me if I know exactly what to ask them.
I solved the problem by installing an older version 1.6 b/c i don't have PHP5 on my server.
