Description Brian Collins 2005-02-19 15:28:37 UTC
I tried them all, but they don't seem to be working... The rewrite_rules page and 
discussion don't seem to have updated info for version 1.4...

If *anyone* has version 1.4 running could you please post what you have in 
your .htaccess and your localsettings.php to make the rewrite work? Basically i setup 
wiki.mydomain.com to point to mydomain.com/wiki.... What i would like is for the 
whole thing to be wiki.mydomain.com/article_name 

If you have something similar please post it... 

Thanks a bunch

I support you. Installing a mediawiki can take less than 2 minutes, but trying
rewriting can be a horror story.

Perhaps, please, can someone of the developers check and update the info on
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Rewrite_rules ?

URL rewriting is external to MediaWiki and there should be no difference at 
all between 1.3 and 1.4 in this regard.

If you're getting 500 Internal Server Error problems, a common problem is 
using an .htaccess file with directives that your Apache configuration does 
not allow you to override in an .htaccess file. If you're running your own 
server, check the settings in the global configuration; if you're on a shared 
host ask your system administrator. Show them the .htaccess file you're 
trying to use, ask if that's allowed and if there's a change either you or they 
can make to get it working.

I have other scripts on the site (serendipity blog) that has an option in the web interface to use rewriting (i checked the htaccess file it 
produced and it's like this:

# BEGIN s9y
ErrorDocument 404 /serendipity/index.php
DirectoryIndex /serendipity/index.php

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /serendipity/
RewriteRule ^archives/(\d+)\.html index.php?url=/archives/$1.html [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^archives/(\d+)[_\-]short\.html index.php?url=/archives/$1-short.html [L,NC,QSA]
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)[_\-][0-9a-z_\-]*\.html index.php?url=$1-article.html [L,NC,QSA]
RewriteRule ^feeds/(.*) index.php?url=/feeds/$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^unsubscribe/(.*)/([0-9]+) index.php?url=/unsubscribe/$1/$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^approve/(.*)/(.*)/([0-9]+) index.php?url=approve/$1/$2/$3 [L,QSA]

RewriteRule ^admin$ serendipity_admin.php [L,QSA]

RewriteRule ^index\.(html?|php.?) index.php?url=index.html [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^htmlarea/(.*) htmlarea/$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule (.*\.html?) index.php?url=/$1 [L,QSA]

<Files *.tpl>

# END s9y

It works perfectly ok. Looks like this now http://www.mydomain.com/serendipity/archives/1-article.html.

I tried several of the uggestions from the rewrite_rules page and the talk:rewrite_rules, but this is what happened:

First tried modifying htaccess (+ added |skins to rewrite rules as per instructions) without touching localsettings.php... mydomain.com/wiki 
automatically redirected to mydomain.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_page ... then modified localsettings.php as per suggestions... same 
thing. Tried other users' implementations... same thing or didn't work. Then removed htaccess and reverted localsettings.php back, then the 
main page appears without any skin. I don't know what i did to revert it back to normal again. So then i stopped trying.

If you know what should be included in the htaccess and localsettings for 1.4beta6 to work Brion, please tell. I would appreciate it a lot, 
as i'm sure others will too...

Thanks.

The URL rewrites described on http://wiki.wegge.dk/MediaWiki_customizations
works for me. Are you absolutely sure that you remebered the RewriteEngine on
directive?

I followed the instructions on the site you listed to the letter, and basically this is what happens: http://mydomain.com/wiki and 
http://mydomain.com/wiki/index.php return a 404 not found error, http://mydomain.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_page returns the normal main 
page, but then clicking a link from there returns a non-skinned page. The rewrites don't seem to work as it still shows up as index.php?
title= ...

This is what i put in the .htaccess: (notice i changed /w/ to /wiki/)

##############################################################
# Rewrite rules for a MW installation with normal article view
# without index.php and /w/ in front of all other links.

If the code looks ok to you then i'll just give up... i don't think it's a server problem as rewrite works with another script i have 
(serendipity)...

Just a quick question though... i put the .htaccess in the /wiki directory where the wiki is... did you put it in the root folder? If not, 
do you have anything special in the htaccess of the root folder? Maybe it didn't work for me because you set your script to remove ethe /w/ 
part for you... but i need to keep the /wiki/ part of the URL... do you know how to modify the htaccess and the LocalSettings.php in that 
case?

Thanks
