Cookies, Cache-Control, and Special:RecentChanges

Hi all,

I'm seeing strange behavior with Special:RecentChanges (RC) when no
cookies are set. I have five wikis. On three of them, *only when no
cookies are set*, RC returns the header

Cache-Control: s-maxage=10, must-revalidate, max-age=0

and intermittently returns stale results when refreshing, even
forced refreshing, the page. On the other two wikis, I never see this
problem on the other two wikis, which return

Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, max-age=0, must-revalidate

and always return the current, correct RC results.

Additionally, I'm watching varnishlog while refreshing RC on the 3
wikis that exhibit this issue and not seeing Varnish logging the
requests, meaning the browser isn't even requesting the URL. There is no
Expires header set for the 3 wikis, while Expire is set to "Thu, 01 Jan
1970 00:00:00 GMT" on the 2 wikis that work correctly.

This problem seems to stem from the sendCacheControl() function
in includes/OutputPage.php when $this->mEnableClientCache is true (false
means it sends the no-cache, no-store header leading to correct browser
results), but I don't know why the different wikis would have different
behaviors. I've looked closely at the LocalSettings.php for all 5 wikis,
comparing them carefully, and don't see any settings that might lead to
inconsistent behavior.

[MediaWiki-announce] Security Release: 1.26.3, 1.25.6, and 1.23.14

I would like to announce the release of MediaWiki 1.26.3, 1.25.6 and
1.23.14.

These releases fix sixteen security issues in core, one issue in the bundled
extension SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi and one issue in the non-bundled
extension Scribunto.
Download links are given at the end of this email.

== Security fixes ==

* T122056: Old tokens are remaining valid within a new session
* T127114: Login throttle can be tricked using non-canonicalized usernames
* T123653: Cross-domain policy regexp is too narrow
* T123071: Incorrectly identifying http link in a's href attributes, due to
m modifier in regex
* T129506: MediaWiki:Gadget-popups.js isn't renderable
* T125283: Users occasionally logged in as different users after
SessionManager deployment
* T103239: Patrol allows click catching and patrolling of any page
* T122807: [tracking] Check php crypto primatives
* T98313: Graphs can leak tokens, leading to CSRF
* T130947: Diff generation should use PoolCounter
* T133507: Careless use of $wgExternalLinkTarget is insecure
* T132874: API action=move is not rate limited

This fix affects both core and SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi:
* T110143: strip markers can be used to get around html attribute escaping
in (many?) parser tags

These two fixes are not applicable to 1.23.14 as the 1.23 branch does not

Auth0 and MediaWiki?

Is anybody using Auth0 (https://auth0.com/) for authentication on a MediaWiki system? We are looking
into it, but we've found no existing extensions for MediaWiki.

Thanks,

Pywikibot mw 1.22 not working?

Hi here,

Any chance someone can point me to why pywikibot works with a 1.24 mw
instance, but not with the 1.22 one?

I can login but I can't push pages using pagefromfile.

Any clues maybe?

Thanks,

Regards,

Rachid

wiki family advice

Hello,

I've got 9 old wikis running various versions of MW from 1.16 to 1.20.
All have their own database on a single database server.  I've been
asked to move all of the wikis onto one app server sharing one
installation of MediaWiki.  I understand that this is a wiki family
configuration.

Should I upgrade all of the wikis first, then move them?
Has anyone done this before using version 1.26 or greater and nginx as
the webserver?
Advice on the approach to take here would be appreciated.

I've tried to follow the instructions on the wiki family page, but
none seem to meet my requirements.

Thanks
Bill

Re: [mwstake] Discussion about a MediaWiki organisation

The notes are here: http://mwstake.org/mwstake/wiki/Event:30

There are some notes from past meetings here:

I was unable to attend myself, but one outcome was defining working groups:

Tabs in foreground skin not working

Hi, 

I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask this. I’m using foreground skin on my MW 1.26 but
unfortunately the tabs are not showing up. Otherwise headertabs is running. 
Firebug doesn’t find some errors. So what do you think is the reason for this?

Best regards...

EMWCon is two weeks away

Hi everyone,

EMWCon, the (first-ever) Enterprise MediaWiki Conference, is happening in
just two weeks, on May 25-27 in New York City. There will be at least 30
people attending, from a variety of different organizations and about five
different countries. The event will feature a lot of interesting talks as
well as a "Create Camp" on Friday, a sort of hackathon for both technical
and non-technical projects (and semi-technical ones).

It's not too late to register - if you're interested, go here:

empty pages

Hi,

probably after an automatic upgrade of mediawiki software, the content of the 
pages on linueve.org/old is no more visible. However the source code is still 
in place.

What can I do ?

thanks for help

Has anyone got the SolveMedia captcha working with 1.26?

SolveMedia is an ad-based captcha. I have an ancient 1.19 with it that
works, but I can't get it to work with 1.26 on PHP 5.5.9. PHP in
strict/warnings mode throws up:

Notice: Undefined index: adcopy_challenge in
/home/funsites/www/rwtest.davidgerard.co.uk/w/extensions/SolveMedia/SolveMedia.php
on line 129
Notice: Undefined index: adcopy_response in
/home/funsites/www/rwtest.davidgerard.co.uk/w/extensions/SolveMedia/SolveMedia.php
on line 130

- but those are problems in the working version too.

The official SolveMedia extension was last updated in 2012 and that's
the version running on this 1.19.

Has anyone got this to work on any more recent MediaWikis?

(yes it's a terrible idea in several ways, but let's assume for the
moment it's considered a tolerable baseline.)

- d.
