Description Chad David Cover 2007-02-02 15:24:13 UTC
I have tried to override a potential lack of memory by extending the
memory_limit in a php.info file, and even contacted the webmaster about this.
But every time I try to to install MediaWiki 1.9.1, it creates the tables, but
hangs at propagating the data. Here is the installation log:

    * PHP 5.0.5 installed
    * Found database drivers for: MySQL
    * PHP server API is cgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title)
    * Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
    * PHP is configured with no memory_limit.
    * Have zlib support; enabling output compression.
    * Couldn't find Turck MMCache, eAccelerator or APC. Object caching functions
cannot be used.
    * GNU diff3 not found.
    * Found ImageMagick: /usr/bin/convert; image thumbnailing will be enabled if
you enable uploads.
    * Found GD graphics library built-in.
    * Installation directory: /home2/madcover/public_html/mediawiki-1.9.1
    * Script URI path: /wiki
    * Environment checked. You can install MediaWiki.
    *

      Generating configuration file...
    * Database type: MySQL
    * Loading class: DatabaseMysql
    * Attempting to connect to database server as XXXXX...success.
    * Connected to 4.1.21-standard
    * Database XXXXX exists
    * Creating tables... using MySQL 4 table defs... done.
    * Initializing data...

Please advise. Is there a patch available to fix this?
Comment 1 Takahito Torimoto 2007-02-06 04:07:28 UTC
Yup - same issue here.  I just tried it with 1.9.2 and I get the same results. 
Any ideas?
More debug info would be helpful too.

    * PHP 5.1.4 installed
    * Found database drivers for: MySQL
    *
      Warning: PHP's register_globals option is enabled. Disable it if you can.
      MediaWiki will work, but your server is more exposed to PHP-based security
vulnerabilities.
    * PHP server API is cgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title)
    * Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
    * PHP is configured with no memory_limit.
    * Have zlib support; enabling output compression.
    * Couldn't find Turck MMCache, eAccelerator or APC. Object caching functions
cannot be used.
    * Found GNU diff3: /usr/bin/diff3.
    * Found ImageMagick: /usr/bin/convert; image thumbnailing will be enabled if
you enable uploads.
    * Found GD graphics library built-in.
    * Installation directory: /home/torimoto/public_html/wiki

Please check the Apache and/or PHP error logs to establish what's stalling
script execution at this point.
Comment 3 Takahito Torimoto 2007-02-13 20:30:46 UTC
This was tried on a hosting account that has WHM and cPanel.
Where/how can I check/view the Apache and/or PHP error logs?
Let me know and I can check - thanks.

cPanel should have an option to view various logs. I suspect the problem here
might be PHP running out of memory, however.
Comment 5 Takahito Torimoto 2007-02-14 14:26:29 UTC
I checked with my hosting company, as well as through the cPanel myself, and I
was told:
"The php error logs are combined with apache logs. I checked them for any errors
on your account and in the last two days there have been none, aside from the
standard 404 errors web spiders generate when searching for robots.txt and
favicon.ico . Hitting the memory limit in php would trigger an error but there
is none, so it does not appear to be the problem."

Any other debugging methods?
