Description JorisW 2007-07-25 14:57:44 UTC

We are using Mediawiki ( 5 persons ). When I login, there is no problem, but if someone else tries to login  he just gets a blank page, he is not able to login. Sometimes someone else can login and at that moment, I can't login. It's like just 1 person can use the wiki. I used following settings:

# Disable anonymous editing
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;

# Prevent new user registrations except by sysops
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;

# Disable reading by anonymous users
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;

# Pages anonymous (not-logged-in) users may see
$wgWhitelistRead = array( ":Main page", "Special:Userlogin", "Wikipedia:Help" );

Check your PHP error logs.  A blank page usually indicates a PHP error.
Comment 2 JorisW 2007-07-26 09:26:12 UTC
I have no access to the php error log file, why is the error not shown on screen ? 
Is there another possibility to debug the wiki?

All the users that are trying to login have the same external IP, maybe this is a problem ?

Best Regards

I'm assuming that this was resolved in some fashion in the last year.  In any event, it's probably not a MediaWiki bug.  Closing WORKSFORME unless more info is provided, like error logs.  To display errors, add this to the very top of LocalSettings.php (after "<?php"): error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set("display_errors", 1);

(No, it didn't take me this long to get back to the report, I just found it randomly by searching for something else and figured it was irrelevant by now and should be closed.)
