I have setup my wiki so that only logged in users can see and edit pages. This works nicely for all pages i used :
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['edit'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;
# But allow them to read e.g., these pages:
$wgWhitelistRead = array ( "Main Page", "Special:Userlogin", "Wikipedia:Help");
This works exactly as it should for all pages but the mainpage. nobody can edit this page, not even sysops.
even if i allow set the edit permissions to true for everyone this remains the same, sysops cannot do anything on this mainpage, nor can any other user.
I really need to edit this page, so any help will be greatly appreciated,
I set up my permissions identical to yours listed above, and was still able to edit the mainpage (as sysop). Do you have any other configurations or extensions you didn't mention?
there was a table 'protectedpages' in the db which contained the main page, i guess its from an old extension which i uninstalled, anyhow it works after removing the page from the table
