Ok, well, ahem, after doing a mediawiki 1.4.5 to 1.7.1 upgrade (yikes!), the wiki is sort of back up. At least the data is there for reading....

A few busted things include the skin, rss feeds, and the URLs have "index.php" in them--I gotta do the rewrite to sort that.

I really really really don't want to have to work on this though, so if there is anyone out there with mediawiki experience, chime in. :)

mediawiki is the same wiki software that wikipedia uses.

Oh, and sometimes it adds in a "www" at the beginning. Scary when GUIs have so much control. They confuse me.... ;)

Now things are /mostly/ sorted. The "www" ain't appearing no more (somehow cpanel--my new nemesis--had the virtual host listed in two places).

One issue is that the URLs on the pages still have "index.php" in them a'la:


This isn't the end of the world, since it still works without it:

I just can't get mediawiki to drop it (ok, i've looked at it for precious few minutes...).

The relevent bits of LocalSettings.php say:
$wgScriptPath       = "/index.php";
$wgScript           = "$wgScriptPath";
$wgRedirectScript   = "/redirect.php";
$wgArticlePath      = "/$1";

The wgArticlePath, I'd think, would drop out the index.php.

Anyhoo, if there is someone out there that knows mediawiki, can you hit me with a cluebat?
