Description TheHYPO 2006-08-13 04:59:28 UTC
On an in-development wiki, logged in users began (at the same time) to see URLs to 
articles in the main namespace (not project, special or other pages), with an additional 
PHP attribute after the normal URL:
?[name of mysql db]_[mysql table prefix]_session=0768f7d46b86adf83c749f0d15763f7f

This session id is the same for all pages for my account (right now there are only two 
users on the wiki). I don't know what the session ID was for the other user. When they 
logged out and deleted their cookie, and logged back in, the URLs were normal again. I 
attempted deleting the cookie and refreshed (with no impact) before logging out and 
logging back in to see normal URLs (I don't know if the cookie delete had any impact, or 
if it was simply the loging out and in.

Make sure PHP is configured to use cookies, not URL modification, 
for sessions. See the php.ini documentation on
