Description Harry den Dekker 2006-05-25 08:30:32 UTC
- clean installation of mediawiki-1.6.6 on local EasyPHP apache/php setup
- changing sysop's email address on Preferences page
- message: "A confirmation e-mail has been sent to the nominated e-mail address"
- ... but no mail arrives
- instead apache log shows this:
  [Thu May 25 10:09:36 2006] [error] [client] Filename is not valid:

I have been looking through the code but I haven't found where the actual action
takes place that requests a new page.  If someone would help me a little here,
I'd be happy to dig into it.

Check the PHP error log. Ensure that email can be sent from the machine through
PHP. Consult the mailing list archives.
