Description nepomuk 2005-02-24 12:18:10 UTC
Warning: set_time_limit(): Cannot set time limit in safe mode 
in /var/www/ on line 27

PHP 4.3.10: ok 
Warning: PHP's register_globals option is enabled. MediaWiki will work correctly, but this setting 
increases your exposure to potential security vulnerabilities in PHP-based software running on your 
server. You should disable it if you are able. 
Warning: PHP's safe mode is active! You will likely have problems caused by this. You may need to 
make the 'images' subdirectory writable or specify a TMP environment variable pointing to a 
writable temporary directory owned by you, since safe mode breaks the system temporary directory. 
PHP server API is cgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title) 
Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support. 
PHP's memory_limit is 8M. If this is too low, installation may fail! Attempting to raise limit to 
20M... failed. 
Have zlib support; enabling output compression. 
Found GD graphics library built-in, image thumbnailing will be enabled if you enable uploads. 
Installation directory: /var/www/ 
Script URI path: /mw 
Notice: Undefined index: SERVER_ADMIN 
in /var/www/ on line 312
Warning: $wgProxyKey is insecure

Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-04-21 10:45:35 UTC
This server sounds so restrictive perhaps nothing will work. :P

Please test the 1.4.2 release and see if it helps.
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-08-24 12:23:21 UTC
Please retest with lastest stable version (1.4.8).
There is some 1.4 versions on
