Patch for REL1_3 (495 bytes, patch)
2004-11-29 16:21 UTC, Zigger

Description Zigger 2004-10-17 18:27:44 UTC
After a config under Windows 2000, a blank page is shown, unless the wikidb
database already exists.
This occurred in all the versions I tested: 1.3.3, 1.3.5, 1.3.6.

The fix that worked for me was to edit config/index.php to add "flush();" after
"initialiseMessages();" to match the code for the working case.
Comment 1 Chad Smith 2004-10-21 05:29:48 UTC
I am having the same issue.
I have FTP'd onto WebHost4Life, run through the install questionare and then moved the LocalSettings.php file back to the root 
directory, then when I try and start the wiki I get nothing.
Has there been any progress with this?
Comment 2 Zigger 2004-10-21 09:52:05 UTC
Chad, you seem to have a different issue.  I got the blank page as the response
to the config.  The main page of the wiki subsequently worked for me.

1.3 no longer maintained, listed as working in 1.4. Closing bug as obsolete.
