What does "not possible" mean? Can you please clarify what actually happens?
Comment 2 shrek-m 2004-11-25 21:37:10 UTC
i will try it with my poor english.

1; edit the page
2; "show preview" or "save the page"
3; the original page is shown without the changes, all the changes are lost

it is not possible to create new pages
eg.
[[Test]]
http://127.0.0.1/mediawiki2/index.php/Test
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-12-05 21:04:54 UTC

Comment 4 shrek-m 2004-12-12 11:40:43 UTC

==>  with the same negative result,
no editing via mediawiki is possible.

because this rhl_7.3 will be replaced in the next few weeks with fedora_core_3
no further testing is possible.
you can close this bug if you want.
thanks.

That problem triggered in redhat 7.3.1 does not occur
with fedora core 1, 2 or 3.

As user is migrating his server, I assume we can forget about
the issue and hope users update their release.

This is not a solution. I'm having the same bug. 

# rpm -q redhat-release php mysql-server apache
redhat-release-7.3-1
php-4.1.2-7.3.6
mysql-server-3.23.54a-3.73
apache-1.3.27-2
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2005-10-09 05:41:55 UTC
Please try with modern versions of PHP and MySQL; we no longer support PHP or MySQL 
versions this old.
Comment 9 MarioC 2005-10-09 18:57:21 UTC
Can I download an older version of mediawiki compatible with this software?
Comment 10 Ulf Lunde 2005-10-13 13:45:47 UTC
My company had the exact same problem when trying to install MediaWiki 1.5 on
two of our Linux servers (one Redhat and one SuSe).  But on the third server
MediaWiki worked "straight out of the box" without any problems whatsoever.

The only significant difference I found between the servers is that the first
two servers were using php-4.1 while the one that works is using php-4.4.

Does anyone know if there exists any version of MediaWiki that can work
with php-4.1 at all?
Comment 11 Brion Vibber 2005-10-29 06:49:40 UTC
PHP 4.1 is no longer supported.
