Description vga 2005-04-24 12:43:02 UTC
i have a problem with the installation of mediawiki 1.4.2 to the internet. i can 
install it on my computer quite well and can use it, but when i want to try it in the 
internet i face with three problems :
(1.) After "You'll have to set the wiki up first!" page, i see warnings and a fatal 
error:

Warning: ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons 
in /usr/hosts/domains/tawish/www.tawish.org/httpdocs/tatarpedia1/config/index.php on 
line 117

Warning: main(includes/Defines.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory 
in /usr/hosts/domains/tawish/www.tawish.org/httpdocs/tatarpedia1/config/index.php on 
line 121

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'includes/Defines.php' 
(include_path='.:') 
in /usr/hosts/domains/tawish/www.tawish.org/httpdocs/tatarpedia1/config/index.php on 
line 121



i could have been able to pass the problem by hacking the codes in config/index.php --
 i have changed the relative addresses of include or require pages with putting ../ 
before the pages.
 
Then the second problem comes :

(2.) in the installation process, the last requirement(!) wanted to be fulfill, but i 
dont have a root access due to hosting company does not give them. From here, the 
mediazilla, i have seen a clue to hack the config/index.php file by changing the 
DBuser and DBpasswords with my accounts in database. Therefore the installation 
process was finished. 

At the end of the installation process i have seen the note to copy the 
config/LocalSettings.php file to the main root of the wiki. i did. and change the 
permissions of the config folder to 0 pr 400, i think i is not problem.
Then faced with the 3rd problem :

(3.) when i open my site, i see the below warnings :

Warning: ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons 
in /usr/hosts/domains/tawish/www.tawish.org/httpdocs/tatarpedia/LocalSettings.php on

And can not overcome the problem for several days. Is there anybody to help me, and 
solve the problem.. What can i do, i am not a programmer, but only a person who wants 
to upload mediawiki to the internet and share documents, articles with other people 
like wikipedia.

Thanks a lot for your help..
Comment 1 JeLuF 2005-04-29 09:27:23 UTC
Is there a way to change the include path without calling ini_set?
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-04-30 02:09:58 UTC
There is a set_include_path() and get_include_path() as of 4.3.0. We could perhaps try 
using it if available.
Comment 3 vga 2005-05-01 12:41:26 UTC
i have put # before ini_set( "include_path", ...  in LocalSettings.php and it worked, but from 
the beginning to now. i have always omitted some needed (i think) rows so my site is may have 
problems in the future..  does not seem so for now..

thanks a lot..

Disabled ini_set()

If the php-function ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons you have to
change some paths. The row-numbers are for version 1.5.1. In the file
config/index.php:

    * 122: require_once( "includes/Defines.php" );
      => require_once( "../includes/Defines.php" );
    * 123: require_once( "includes/DefaultSettings.php" );
      => require_once( "../includes/DefaultSettings.php" );
    * 124: require_once( "includes/MagicWord.php" );
      => require_once( "../includes/MagicWord.php" );
    * 125: require_once( "includes/Namespace.php" );
      => require_once( "../includes/Namespace.php" );
    * 166: require_once( "install-utils.inc" );
      => require_once( "../install-utils.inc" );
    * 167: require_once( "maintenance/updaters.inc" );
      => require_once( "../maintenance/updaters.inc" );
    * 465: require_once( "maintenance/InitialiseMessages.inc" );
      => require_once( "../maintenance/InitialiseMessages.inc" );
    * 1284: require_once( "languages/Names.php" );
      => require_once( "../languages/Names.php" );

In the file includes/DefaultSettings.php:

    * 27: require_once( 'includes/SiteConfiguration.php' );
      => require_once( '../includes/SiteConfiguration.php' );

Then you can run the script index.php again. Don't take notice of the fatal
error in includes/DefaultSettings.php. Just reload the page. After moving
config/LocalSettings.php to the folder above you have to comment out the
ini_set() in LocalSettings.php:

    * 8: ini_set( "include_path", ".:$IP:$IP/includes:$IP/languages" );
      => #ini_set( "include_path", ".:$IP:$IP/includes:$IP/languages" );
    * 12: ini_set( 'memory_limit', '20M' );
      => #ini_set( 'memory_limit', '20M' );
Comment 5 Rob Church 2005-12-14 23:20:16 UTC
Closing due to lack of feedback for a while, and the fact that a viable
workaround exists.
Comment 6 janrei.g 2007-05-02 14:50:12 UTC
Are there chances that MediaWiki will take care of environments where ini_set 
is disabled?

There is at least a warning during install (I didn't manage to install 
MediaWiki yet but this is most likely a differnt issue):
Warning: ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons in /srv/www/httpd/
phost/j/de/pytalhost/jansspielwiese/web/scripts/wikit/config/index.php on line 
33
Comment 7 Chad H. 2011-05-05 19:24:05 UTC
Now that we're looking to support HipHop, and HH doesn't support ini_set() for a majority of the parameters, it's a good time to take a look at all of our ini_get|sets in core and clean them up.

A general wfIniGet( $param, $defaultVal ) would be useful as a wrapper.
Comment 8 Chad H. 2011-05-26 21:07:06 UTC
Installation -> General. We need to cleanup ini_set/get() everywhere.
Comment 9 Christian Kujau 2013-03-21 19:25:05 UTC
MediaWiki 1.20.2 here with ini_set() disabled as well. One load of this wikis frontpage produces 12 lines of PHP warnings:

PHP Warning:  ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons in ../includes/db/Database.php on line 702
PHP Warning:  ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons in ../includes/db/Database.php on line 712
[...]

There are quite a few places where ini_set/get is used:

$ egrep -rl 'ini_[gs]et' .
./includes/AjaxResponse.php
./includes/GlobalFunctions.php
./includes/AutoLoader.php
./includes/LocalisationCache.php
