I've been trying to get MediaWiki 1.4.7 to use PubCookie

our group has modified the MediaWiki to have a Semantic Web notion.
The system is accessible from
It is still under development.
To make it short, what we did is enabling the MediaWiki to write
labeled links. We used the Category function as a reference to
create a new namespace ("Term:"). Wiki pages under this namespace
are enabled to write labeled links.
Well, we believe that this extension enables the MediaWiki to be
a content and metadata management system, and we hope it will be
useful for the future development of MediaWiki.
The MediaWiki version we use is 1.3.11.
Hi, i'm using mediawiki with the default style (monobook), i like the
style but i want to indent the sections.
In other words, when i create a second level section (= = on the wiki
text) i want to indent the text for that section 5px, for a third level
section ( = = = ) indent 10px; and so on.
I have created a Spellchecker that is working great on my local
Intranet. There are still some things that I need to do.
* Check for any security vulnerabilities, I think there are some major
* Clean up the documentation.
Other than that it is functional.
Take a look at my wiki for more information on it and send me some
feedback with your thoughts and suggestions.
I'm new to the list, but have been using the mediawiki for a
few months now, and am now interested in trying to introduce
into my workplace.
One of the show stoppers, at least as near as I can tell, is
our use of SiteMinder for user auth. I'm wondering how difficult
it would be to get MediaWiki to play with it.
Protecting the site is easy, obviously. But how to get MW to
use the SM username when attributing edits? And we don't want
to do something crazy like have to load all our company IDs
into the MW user database.
For what it's worth, I'm not too worried about admins. I think
we'd be able to just create 'real' MW accounts which match the
individuals SM usernames. This is just a hunch, so correct me
if I'm wrong.

On an RH7.2 box, running the latest RH released versions of PHP (4.1.2),
PHP-MySQL (4.1.2) and MySQL (3.23.58) I have installed MediaWiki 1.4.7,
which initially appears to be working fine. However, all attempts to
edit pages, anonymously or logged in either as an ordinary user or
WikiSysop, produce the same result. Pressing 'Save page' has the same
effect as pressing 'Show Preview'. The Preview doesn't contain either
the old or the new page, but once again offers the option of either a
Preview or a Save.
The symptoms sound a little like those in this thread:
I tried adding the session_save_path(...) statement to the end of
LocalSettings.php, but saw no change in behaviour.
If your install of Apache is failing like this, chances are that there's
something seriously wrong with it. I suggest you completely reinstall
Apache from the ground up.
You should do this even if your server works perfectly, since the latest
version of Apache is 2.0.54 and your server is quite vulnerable if you
