Description Soren 2004-09-28 07:51:04 UTC
Installation is done successfully, everything works fine directly on the Server.
But Wiki can not be opened from the Intranet (URL: http://ip/wiki/), it only
works when index.php?titel=... is specified, too. Page editing does not work
either, whereas preview works.

Server: WinXP Home with WAMP (standard installation, PHP 4.3.6, MySQL 3.23.49)
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-09-28 07:53:38 UTC
Can you confirm that Apache includes 'index.php' in the DirectoryIndex line in
httpd.conf, and that other directories with an index.php work as expected?
Comment 2 Soren 2004-09-28 08:40:32 UTC
Yes, I can confirm that 'index.php' is included in the DirectoryIndex line. It
works for other directories, e.g. http://ip/wiki/config/
which shows that the Wiki is configured.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-09-28 08:44:20 UTC
Can you check the error log?

Confirm also that the correct absolute URL is being used, and that you're not
being redirected to nowhere. If for instance 'localhost' or '' or some
other non-valid hostname is being given, override $wgServer in your
LocalSettings.php to 'http://' and the correct hostname or IP address.
Comment 4 Soren 2004-09-28 09:07:11 UTC
Interestingly there is NO entry at all for the $wgServer variable in my
localsettings. I added the value with the correct address and now everything
seems to work. Thank you. Maybe we should find out, why no entry was made...
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2004-09-28 20:37:48 UTC
Normally there's no entry as it's autodetected in DefaultSettings.php.

If Apache is mis-configured, you can end up with an incorrect value.
