Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Hersfold 2007-09-17 05:11:24 UTC
When clicking on links produced by Template:coord on the English Wikipedia (link:, the template is supposed to access the geohack tool, as shown in the URL above. For unknown reasons, this is producing a 403 Forbidden Error: 


You don't have permission to access /~magnus/geo/geohack.php on this server.
Apache Server at Port 80

This has happened to several other people as well, see for discussion.

I can't reproduce this bug. Maybe it is intermittent?
Comment 2 Gurch 2007-09-17 10:26:16 UTC
Geohack is on the toolserver, which has been having problems lately.
Comment 3 Andrew Garrett 2007-09-17 11:04:48 UTC
GeoHack was disabled on the toolserver, because it was causing a DNS flood.
Comment 4 Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2007-09-18 10:41:45 UTC
Obviously not a MediaWiki issue. There is a Toolserver Bugzilla (which doesn't seem to be working at the moment), so I suggest going there.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-09-18 10:47:31 UTC
To be fair; the bug was filed in the Wikimedia component, and if the Toolserver-specific BugZilla is unavailable, then there's not much point directing people there - if a report here doesn't get acted upon (which is quite possible), then a better option is to email zedler-admins at wikimedia dot org with a report.
