Description Olathe 2004-08-30 11:40:07 UTC
LocalSettings.sample (and perhaps the install script, which I can't use) has an
error in the invitation-only settings.  The settings there won't allow either
the main page or login page to be viewed.  I think ":Main_Page" is incorrect or
obsolete syntax.

The following seems to fix the problem :

# Invitation-only closed shop type of system
$wgWhitelistEdit = true;
$wgWhitelistRead = array ( "Main Page", "Special:Userlogin"  );
$wgWhitelistAccount = array ( "user" => 0, "sysop" => 1, "developer" => 1 );

I'm moving this to "documentation" because the .sample files are essentially
documentation. This is certainly not a bug relating to user settings or logins.

I updated localsettings.sample with the content of ./includes/DefaultSettings.php

Thanks for your report.
