Description Michael Keppler 2004-08-24 09:48:48 UTC
I did an upgrade from 1.3 beta 2 to 1.3.1. In this process a page
"MyWikiName:All_system_messages" was generated. The links on that page to the
pages with the system messages are all wrong, they point to the absolute URL
localhost/wikidirectory/... instead of using servername/wikidirectory/... or
even better using only a relative URL.
A possible reason for this could be that I called the upgrade web page url via
localhost directly on that server instead of via its external servername.

The All_system_messages page is really slow and also unreliable due to the issue noted in this bug. It's been superceded by [[Special:
Allmessages]], which as of 1.3.3 is also much, much faster. Since the edit links are dynamically generated they will always use the 
current configuration of the wiki.

Use Special:Allmessages rather than the old page (remove it or redirect it if you've got it lying around still.)
