Description Chinarut 2006-06-26 07:29:37 UTC
Hi!   I want to make it crystal clear my issue occurs with the mambowiki component.

I've done due diligence discussing this issue with the Mambo community:

I am escalating this issue to the wikimedia community per included documentation.


    Overview Description: More detailed expansion of summary.

as documented in the above referenced thread, I have *no* issues with my initial
development install - I only begin to have login issues after relocating my
joomla! files and database to a different apache/mySQL instance.

    Steps to Reproduce: Minimized, easy-to-follow steps that will trigger the
bug. Include any special setup steps.

        1) install MAMP, Joomla!, and mambowiki

        2) recusively copy root directory from /Applications/MAMP/htdocs to

        3) export and import database from MAMP install to Fink mysql install

        4) log in as valid user

        5) open mambowiki component                   

    Actual Results: What the application did after performing the above steps.

        Login Required - You must login to view other pages. 

    Expected Results: What the application should have done, were the bug not


    Build Date & Platform: Date and platform of the build that you first
encountered the bug in.

where is MediaWiki bug?
Comment 2 Chinarut 2006-06-26 07:56:41 UTC
your request for clarification is not clear.   I understand this is an
integration issue and looking for additional direction.

when I go to open the Main_Page of my wiki - it asks for a login.

If I click "login" I get:

"You are currently Logged in to the private area of this site " [Logout]

I will fwd this issue directly to Alexander per this page:

and make reference to this report.

Please note that we are responsible for bugs relating to MediaWiki itself, and
do not provide support for integration with components or plugins from third
parties, nor extensions not used on our sites or present in our version control.
Comment 5 Chinarut 2006-06-26 11:08:17 UTC
got it.  might it make sense to create a "MediaWiki Integrations" category with
their sub-owners akin to the "mediawiki extensions" ?

Perhaps it makes sense to put "Kate's Tool" and "Logwood" into a category called
"MediaWiki Utlities" ?

just looking to tidy up the house ;)
Comment 6 Rob Church 2006-06-26 11:13:52 UTC
No, because it doesn't belong on *our bug tracker*.
Comment 7 Chinarut 2006-06-26 12:21:19 UTC
ok - my misunderstanding - I missed your statement in regards to what you have
under version control being your scope.

Look forward to a unified bug tracker at some point ;)
