Description David 2005-10-31 13:49:20 UTC
When I attempt to Install Mediawiki I get this after typing in all information:

Checking environment...

    * PHP 4.3.2: ok
    * PHP server API is apache2filter; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title)
    * Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
    * PHP's memory_limit is 32M. If this is too low, installation may fail!
    * Have zlib support; enabling output compression.
    * Neither Turck MMCache nor eAccelerator are installed, can't use object
caching functions

You have a broken PHP configuration. Please unbreak your configuration and try 
again.

What do I do to set the correct configuration?

Created attachment 4084 [details]
proposed patch to prevent the warnings from being shown

Why are these warnings a sign of a broken PHP configuration? I don't think that you can rely on the user having access to /usr/bin/, see for example shared hosting environments.

I have attached a patch for this problem that should make the warnings disappear.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-09-06 20:08:39 UTC
Fixed in r25599.
