Description Zigger 2004-10-17 08:47:09 UTC
config/index.php does not detect a full disk, as the fwrite() result is not checked.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-10-17 08:58:00 UTC
If you have a full disk, a lot more than this will probably fail...
Comment 2 Zigger 2004-10-17 14:38:49 UTC
I agree with Brion's comment, which is one of the reasons I marked this as low
priority.  But:

1. this is "probably" the only direct write to the mediawiki folder/directory
tree.  Databases and image uploads and /tmp could well be on separate
file-systems (and have related writes that could use error-checking).

2. it is better to detect and report a full/restricted file-system early and
descriptively.  Config is an early and descriptive process.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-11-13 19:42:21 UTC
Probably fixed in cvs. Dieing if fwrite() return false.
Comment 4 Zigger 2004-12-16 22:53:09 UTC
The fix was first released with v1.4beta1.
