Hurmf, such authoritarian design. Force the site owner to maintain such
lists, and not allow users to say if they want to be blackmailed into
needing to examine each change if they wish not to be cut off from
knowing about the next change. Hurmf.

Re: Install on Windows Problem

Platonides,Sorry, I am just now seeing your response. I don't think it is a write access problem anymore.
Since this is a wampserver stack I am using, I cross posted this at the wampserver forum:
When setting up mediawiki, got this message: 

"PHP is linked with old MySQL client libraries. If you are using a MySQL 4.1 server and have problems
connecting to the database, see [dev.mysql.com] for help. 
Attempting to connect to database server as wikidb_user...failed due to authentication errors. Check passwords." 

If you follow the link you learn all about old and new passwords in MySQL since 4.1. But when I look at what is in
wampserver, they are all 5+ so i shouldn't be having this problem at all. 
Someone suggested searching for my.ini outside of the wamp folder, but that came up empty. So I don't think
there is some stray old mysql out there causing me problems. I created the wiki db and user myself in
phpmyadmin, and the installation script was able to connect, but then I got this same old libraries error
message again. And no, mw is definitely not installed.
Thanks for your time and insights.

[CfP]: SMWCon Spring 2011

(Call for Participation)
Hello there,

The next SMWCon (Semantic MediaWiki Conference) is in 4 weeks. It offers tutorials as well as conference presentations.

We believe you'll be benefited a lot from attending the conference, whether you're a student, or a free-lance developer, or an enterprise architect. In the past SMWCons, the content was very broad, and we're striving to do the same this time. If you have a topic you want to share, please don't hesitate to put it on the wiki site too. We'll get the schedule out about 2 weeks before the start.

As of the cost, it's be heavily subsidized by our sponsors, and especially if you're a student, you basically learn and eat free during the conference:-). Check it out http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/SMWCon_Spring_2011.

Best regards,
Jesse

That's an *option*. Nobody forces the site owner to even set it. People
listed there will probably be 2-3 administradors which have file access
anyway. It's not intended for anyone to be able to subscribe there. In
such case, $wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges should point to a mailing list.

Why would you want to know about the next change if you didn't pay a
ttention to the current one to begin with?
You are free to ignore them and then review a week worth changes in all
articles that piled on your inbox.
If the only option were to send an email regardless if you viewed the
previous one or not, you would get complaints both from users and system
administrators about being too much emails.
Anyway, if you deem this an important feature you can fix that
ganstering and send us your patch so that no more owners get blackmailed
by the evil mediawiki.

I doubt this is your problem, since you are using a server stack that
cointains both apps. It would be very silly to create a package
containing mysql and php, with php unable to connect to mysql.

If you can connect from phpmyadmin, you shouldn't have those problems in
mediawiki.

Good. I assume that your php files are finally trated as such?

Which message is it? What's the output of MediaWiki installer?

Re: Install on Windows Problem

I agree that mismatched components defeats the purpose of a stack. I don't really know what is going on here.
There was a link to a mysql forum thread about how to downgrade mysql to make it compatible with php, but a lot
of the comments talked about just changing passwords. That's what I was hoping to accomplish in
phpmyadmin. After I did that, as I say it connected to the database, but then I got this same error. You asked
about the output of MW, well, that was it. So I refreshed and then I was right back at the link that takes you to
set up the first time, so clearly it did not install.
John Durant on this thread suggested starting over, not using a stack, and deleting any AMP files in
add/remove programs and also in the registry. The only AMP files in my registry were old tomcat files from
some program I was testing that needed them. I have deleted them. I suspect the reason no other AMP shows up
is a function of how the stack was put together. I did not see WAMP in either add.remove programs or the registry.

Re: Install on Windows Problem

I almost have it. I installed mysql, php and apache. Both apache and mysql seem to be working correctly, but
not php. I don't know where I got that wrong.  It is the same as before: seeing the code instead of the
install page. Ideas welcome while I tinker...

Zend Search Lucene for MediaWiki

Anyone have any luck getting Zend Search Lucene for MediaWiki (
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Zend_Search_Lucene_for_MediaWiki ) working?

I spent a few hours trying it out, and got 99% there I think (no more emailed errors). But the special page is
giving me an error, I think in german. And im not sure where to go from here.

Thanks,
-Adam

Re: Zend Search Lucene for MediaWiki

There will be a major update in a few days :-). 
May be it's a good idea to wait, because of it's new config structure and
features.
But you can talk to me on the corresponding talk pages :-).
