Description André Mondri 2007-02-22 22:21:40 UTC
Hello i used this Instruction to create Short Urls : 

[quote]You can rewrite the URL, so the server will invisibly load
"w/index.php?title=article" for "wiki/article".
1. 	Edit or create .htaccess in public_html with the following content.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]

'RewriteBase' defines where the rewrite will start; the example above will match
after 'domain.ext/~username'. If your wiki is just under public_html (ie,
domain.ext/wiki), remove the 'RewriteBase' line. 'RewriteCond' makes sure that
links to files (like stylesheets or images) are not rewritten, which can break
MediaWiki's formatting in some cases. 'RewriteRule' defines the rewrite; in the
example above, '^wiki/(.*)' will invisibly load 'w/index.php?title=$1', where
anything after 'wiki/' will replace '$1'.
2. 	Add or edit the following setting in LocalSettings.php. This causes the HTML
generated by MediaWiki to refer to "/Articlename" instead of the default.

$wgArticlePath = "$wgScriptPath/$1";

it works - but :

my Wiki is installed here:

Articles look like that:

The Problem is now that before Rewriting i have moved my Wiki from /wiki to /. to .

So of course i tried now to redirect with 301 the /wiki to / for SEO Issues.

But this is not working because MediaWiki now ignores the Directory /wiki and
uses it for Articlenames.

Try it :

I searched at mwusers at at metawiki but i cant find any fix or
solution so you are my last hope.

Don't rewrite articles to appear in the document root; it eliminates the entire
namespace, making other files, such as favicon.ico, robots.txt, etc. inaccessible.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-02-22 22:34:33 UTC
This is a problem with your local web server configuration,
not a bug in MediaWiki.

A question like this is probably more appropriate for the
forums; you'll get better reception and better answers there.

Rob - anything else works fine.

Brion - is nearly dead.
