ok, and how about dumping back the translations on my site to a Lang
file so I can upload it as a patch to the CVS? is there an automated way
to do that please?

RE: HTTP_REMOTE_USER and MediaWiki

You should be able to modify the code I attach below to look at the
HTTP_REMOTE_USER variable instead of the variable.

Cheers,

Subject: [Mediawiki-l] HTTP_REMOTE_USER and MediaWiki

Our organization has a global authentication system, which can be set up to
propagate to web applications via the CGI HTTP_REMOTE_USER variable.
I want to set up MediaWiki to use this, so that if HTTP_REMOTE_USER is set,
it automatically uses it as if a user with the same name had logged in
normally.

Re: How to create a message on every Wiki page/article?

I'm still hoping someone will take the time to answer my previous query.
I wonder about the use of the word "translation" in the reply below. Do 
this refer to the Languages modules?

I've edited this page:
http://www.birchy.com/GenWiki/?title=MediaWiki:Sitenotice
It used to have "<sitenotice>" in it.

but it doesn't do anything.

Install problem - newbie

Esteemed Mediawiki people
I've recently installed the latest stable distribution of Mediawiki on a
Mac OS X machine, mainly in order to learn how to use it. The Mac in
question is on a LAN sitting behind a NAT router on a DSL connection.
I installed according to the fairly brief instructions given with the
distribution, and it all went smoothly. I can see the wiki's Main Page
when I point my browser to the relevant page from the local machine.
Great.
However, when I try to see the wiki from outside the LAN, using the public
IP address all I get is an http 500 error message.
My router is set up to forward all port 80 requests through to the Mac
that is serving web pages, and this works perfectly for the rest of my
site (which includes a WordPress installation, suggesting that Apache,
MySQL and PHP are all set up and working as expected). Which leads me to
conclude that the problem lies within the Mediawiki configuration. I've
studied LocalSettings.php and DefaultSettings.php, and can find nothing
obvious. Then again, I'm no PHP expert. I imagine this must be a
reasonably common problem, but I can't find anything about it, and the
mailing list archive does not lend itself to searching.
Any pointers would be gratefully received.
Thanks

Graham

Well, sitenotice works as advertised in mediawiki 1.4, and by
upgrading to it you get any number of improvements, including security
fixes. It appears that you've only got a small amount of stuff already
in your 1.3.9 installation, so migration should be straightforward.

Yes - there's a link on the Special:Allmessages page labelled PHP,
which takes you to ...?title=Special:Allmessages&ot=php That should
produce the PHP code for the great big associative array with all the
messages in.

Take a look at your Apache error log - the kind of error that produces
a 500 response usually records something more useful in there, in my
experience.

Other than that, the thing that occurs off the top of my head is that
either the wiki or the webserver (probably the former if other pages
work OK) is set up to have the internal IP address as its "correct"
address. I believe there is code in MediaWiki to auto-detect this -
try overriding it to use the appropriate public IP.

> the mailing list archive does not lend itself to searching.

You may have already tried this, but the best idea seems to be to add
site:mail.wikimedia.org to a Google query.

RE: Customized Skins & User Prefs

That sounds like the kind of thing that would happen right away.  I've been
running for about 4 days without incident.  Works very nicely in fact.
