Description David Paleino 2006-04-24 20:54:29 UTC
Hi to all,
I've encountered a quite singular problem with MediaWiki. I'm managing a wiki
which should contain source code. That's why I use an extension,
"GeSHiHilight.php" (I don't really know if it's extension-related).

If I try to put the string

system($conf->apt_get . " -t apt-build @apt_args install @pkglist");

into a page, and try to preview or save it, it fails, giving me a 403 error.

Any ideas?

An update:
it seems like it's the final semicolon (;) to cause the problems.
You can see, for example, at : the line marked with
"##" is the string I posted before. As you can see, without the semicolon the
wiki saved it.

What could it be?

Your server has mod_security or similar installed and misconfigured.
Please remove it, reconfigure it, or contact your system administrator.

Ok, I'll try and let you know.
