Screenshot depicting truncated page in Internet Explorer (73.39 KB, image/jpeg)

Description Mike Bogle 2007-01-10 23:33:24 UTC
This will inevitably be something basic to resolve, but for the life of me I
can't figure out what it is.  I've also looked for similar reports (to avoid
duplication) and haven't found any.

In Firefox v2 the dev wiki I'm setting up displays/renders properly every time.

However in both IE v7 and v6.0.29 there are intermittent display problems
occurring.  Initially a generic error appears indicating "Internet Explorer
cannot display the webpage" however if you refresh the page enough times it will
load properly.

This happens most frequently on log-in.

I've also just installed this yesterday, so aside from the installation settings
I haven't customised much.

Problems *had* been occurring in which the page would not load completely. 
However as per another bug report here, I've included "$wgNoOutputBuffer =
true;" in LocalSettings and this issue doesn't seem to be occurring anymore.

The server specs we're using are:

Windows 2000
IIS (I believe version 5)
PHP 5.2
MySQL 5.0

Probably unrelated to the issue, but this doesn't belong:

PHP Warning:  Module 'mysql' already loaded in Unknown on line 0
PHP Warning:  Module 'mysqli' already loaded in Unknown on line 0

You might want to try installing 1.9.0 before continuing debugging attempts; a
number of compatibility issues were resolved in 1.9.
Comment 3 Mike Bogle 2007-01-10 23:57:39 UTC
Thanks, I'll give them a shot.  Will let you know what happens.  Cheers :)
Comment 4 Mike Bogle 2007-01-11 04:53:47 UTC
Update: I've upgraded to MediaWiki version 1.9.0 and am still experiencing the
same problems.  In fact the issue with truncated pages has returned - including
"$wgNoOutputBuffer =
true;" no longer seems to resolve the problem (may have been a coincidence
previously), and page refresh no longer works either.

As before, Firefox version 2 is not experiencing any problems.

I'll attach a screenshot depicting the extent to which the page loads in case it
helps.  Would you like the code too?  

Cheers, Mike

I located the source of the problems.  The solution is outlined here:

<strong>Bug 3000: REQUEST_URI is not set under IIS</strong>

Thanks for your help everyone.
