Description Ryan Graves 2006-11-14 20:43:52 UTC
I had no problems with this for the first few days after installation.  Now the 
preferences page is coming up totally blank.  I didn't make any changes in 
Localsettings.php that should have effected this and I can't find any resources to site 
this happening to other Wiki installations.

Check the PHP error log to find out what's happening.
Comment 2 Ryan Graves 2006-11-14 21:23:39 UTC
The error log shows this:

PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function getLocalURL() on a non-object 
in /var/www/vhosts/
1.6.8/includes/SpecialPreferences.php on line 717
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-11-15 11:41:06 UTC
It looks like you've got a broken value for [[MediaWiki:Mainpage]].

Can you make sure that contains a value page title?
