I get this error
Failed to parse (Can't write to or create math temp directory)
$wgUploadDirectory is deifned as $IP/images and $wgTmpDirectory =
$wgUploadDirectory/tmp in LocalSettings.php.
$IP/images/tmp exists and is chmodded a+w
$IP/images/math exists and is chmodded a+w
I got this working with a previous cvs after experiencing the same error for
quite some time, it magically fixed itself. I then got another error but this
was related to my latex installtation.
When I grabbed the latest cvs, I deleted the /images/tmp amd images/math dirs
remade them and re chmodded a+w, and I continued to get the same error message.
Safe mode? Ownership?
Safe Mode? Explain. Ownership? Explain.
Current PHP version: 5.0.4
safe_mode = Off
I note you haven't provided a URL to the page where you have the problem. This
makes it harder for us to confirm your problem, test, or make suggestions.
Can you confirm that you have actually rerendered the page since making your
tweaks? Page renderings are aggressively cached. Please test in a preview, on a new
page, with new text, with ?action=purge, etc.
I upgraded php to version 5.1.2. The error is no longer occurring. No other
changes were made to my system.
The error I now recieve (PNG conversion failed) is related to my installation
of Tex Live - which is another issue entirely. I do not know why the php upgrade
resolved the issue.
