I am building a web site for a family member who is in the process
of completing a PhD and MediaWiki looks like the ideal CMS to use
as they will be able to update their own web site (delegation is
always important :-)
1) There may be a need to have certain pages in multiple languages.
Is the best way to do this for a small site is to add a language
identifier to the page title eg:
here is the CV in [[CV.en|English]] or in [[CV.nl|Dutch]].
Is there a way to do this and still have a more readable title eg
"English CV" rathern than "CV.en"?
2) I see from the LocalSettings.php that it is possible to prevent
access to certain pages for users who are not logged in. Do I
need to list all the pages I want blocked or is it possible
to do wildcards eg internal*
Is there any RSS support for MediaWiki - i.e. generating a .rss stream for a site?
I am aware of an extension that parses/embeds rss files within MediaWiki pages with <rss>url</rss>
but I want the inverse: to allow others to use RSS to see what's new on my MediaWiki site.

I have had another go with this today but the same message keeps coming back
I can't see what other permissions the maintenance scripts need

Thanks for replying, I hadn't filled out the details in adminsettings.php.
I created a new database user and put the account details in that file and
re-ran the rebuild script, it came back with a message saying the user I had
created didn't have permission.
I gave the user the following privileges
Are there any other privileges it needs?
Make sure AdminSettings.php is present and contains correct username and
password settings as per AdminSettings.sample.
Note that rebuildIndex.php requires ALTER TABLE permission (iirc) to
drop and re-add the fulltext index.

Hi there! - I'm new - :)
I'm been attempting to install Mediawiki on Windows 2000 Server to use
over a LAN.
Installation method: EasyPHP.
If I use the server directly, the wiki works (using
http:\\localhost\wmwiki). But I can't access the wiki from any of the
client computers (using http:\\wmserver\wmwiki). "wmserver" is the DNS
name for my server.
I do have IIS installed, but I have moved it to port 8080, while Apache
runs on port 80. (I can access the IIS websites from the client
computers with no problems.)
So how do I get the client computers to see my wiki?
Thanks for any advice!
what a pity. I tried it out, sometimes it works, but sometimes I get the
"'Laufzeitfehler 5941': Das angeforderte Element ist nicht in der Sammlung
which, in English, is something like "'Run time error 5941': The requested
element is not available in the library."
If I start the debug mode, the following line is highlited:
.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Default Paragraph Font")
More suggestions, anyone?

Some guy wrote a VB script to translate word to wiki . You may give it

I have just installed on a local intranet with URL http: //cad.ha...etc The install went perfectly. However, now, every time I try to go anywhere a "www" is prefixed to the URL, so http: //www.cad.ha... With the www the link fails, where can I get rid of this please? I have looked in the documentation, but cannot see the fix anywhere.
PHP: 4.3.10 (cgi)
Just to make sure I'm on the same page, that would mean this statement using
select page_title, old_text from page, text, categorylinks, revision where
page_id=cl_from and cl_to='$cat' and page_latest=rev_id and
would translate in v 1.4 to:
select cur_title, cur_text from cur, old, categorylinks where cur_id=cl_from

I am running a wiki using version 1.5 and the below SQL statement

First, please don't forget to upgrade that 1.4.6 wiki to 1.4.10. There
are security and data loss issues.
I know the database schema is
different among the two versions and I have seen the table name
comparision in the mediawiki site, but I'm still having troubles
determing what table names I need to change in the SQL statement to
achive the same result. What tables in version 1.4 will create the same
SQL statement result in version 5? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
"select old_text from text, page, revision where page_latest=rev_id and
rev_text_id=old_id and page_title='$pageTitle' and page_namespaced=$ns"
select cur_text from cur where cur_title='$pageTitle' and cur_namespace=$ns
(Make sure that your $pageTitle is properly escaped for SQL, in both cases!)
