Description Boris 2005-06-21 02:52:12 UTC
First, here is my config :
G4 1Ghz, 576Mo RAM
MySQL ver. 4.0.16-max
PHP ver. 4.3.10
Apache ver. 1.3.33
Using FireFox as main browser,safari & ie for tests purpose.

I did follow the installation steps, till the file "LocalSettings.php" is
successfuly created in the config folder, via the URL
"http://localhost/wiki/config/index.php". Then I move it the the parent folder,
delete the config folder, and go to the following URL :
But the page begin to load and remain blank until it times out after 30 sec
(browser settings).

I have read about ALL the documentation I found about that kind of bug, and I
found that this URL :
is leading to the wiki page.

So, my question is : how do I make users go to the main wiki page with this URL
: "http://localhost/wiki/" 
Have I encountered a real bug ?

If the answer is yes, I hope you'll help me solve my problem.
Else, I'm sorry to have waste your time.

I've found that the MediaWiki: message page initialization step is *really slow* 
on my Mac (Tiger, MySQL 4.1 installed from packages). But at least on 
my configuration it doesn't time out; it keeps going for a few minutes until it 
completes successfully.

I'm getting the same thing with MediaWiki 1.4.7, mysql-standard-4.1.13,
php-4.4.0, SunONE Web Server 6.1 SP 2, Solaris 9. ~~~~

Are you using HTTPS? (SSL?) If so, check this out:

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2007-01-15 22:55:57 UTC
This shouldn't happen on new installations from 1.9 on, since the
large bulk message import is no longer performed.

Resolving FIXED.
