Description Dan Jacobson 2006-11-27 18:42:24 UTC
In an effort to print out all my Special:Categories without limits,
I inch up 444, 555 ...
$ GET http://localhost/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:Categories\&limit=777
500 Server closed connection without sending any data back

Well gosh, at least say "asking for too many", don't just slam the door.

OK, forced to do
$ i=0; while test $i -le 2000
 do w3m -dump http://localhost/mediawiki/index.php/Special:Categories?limit=500\&offset=$i
 : $((i+=500)); done|perl -nwe 'print if /^\s*\d+\./'

Works fine here and on Wikipedia. Confirm you're sending the URL 
correctly and aren't hitting local errors of some sort.
