Is there a way to assign multiple people to one group?
I don't seem to find how to do that in sql in the database, I can see
the users table, and the group table, but I don't find the link between
And in the web interface, the Special:permissions can only do it one
user at a time.
I want to upgrade my MediaWiki from 1.6.8 to 1.13.2. SpecialPage "Version" says:
* MediaWiki: 1.6.8
* PHP: 5.2.0-8+etch13 (apache2handler)
* MySQL: 5.0.45-community-nt
o Special pages:
+ PPP (version 2.1b) by Paweł Wilk, Fabian Schmitt
o Parser hooks:
+ PPP (version 2.0b) by Fabian Schmitt, Paweł Wilk
o Extension functions:
+ wfPageProtection and (SetupSpecialPage, setup)
o Parser extension tags:
o AlternateEdit: protectedEdit
o ArticleSave: protectSave
When running the update.php script in the shell I receive the following error message:
bl@virtual-wiki-server:/var/www/wiki/maintenance$ php update.php
Warning: in_array(): Wrong datatype for second argument in /var/www/wiki/includes/Setup.php on line 207

Fatal error: Call to undefined method WebRequest::interpolateTitle() in /var/www/wiki/includes/Setup.php on line 239
Also an LDAP-Extension (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:LDAP_Authentication) is installed (btw: why isn't this extension listed in special:version?)
Can anybody advice, what to do to run the upgrade?
Thank you in advance,
I have a
PHP 5.2.6 (apache2handler)
I forgot my password and done the send new password thrue mail procedure.
After entering the new password twice, I've got this error message (I
used special character in password):
Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in .../wiki/includes/User.php on line
Why the silent? I have been posted 5 time here with no help. It's been 2
week that I have asking for help (here and MWusers) and who is responsible
for MediaWiki software? What is the alternate for help?
I have just testing the characters of files to see if it turn out funny or
absolute characters of URL without MediaWiki software
I uploaded the file mediawiki_(software).php. I get absolute URL, there is
no funny characters. Great!
I uploading the file mediawiki,_software.php. I get absolute URL, there is
no funny characters. Great!
Why is that MediaWiki software have problem with characters ("*", " ' ",
"(", ")", ";", "@", "&", "=", "+", "$", ",", "?", "%" and " " ") in URL but
not the title that created the page?

It means exactly what it says it does - Raw HTML in your Wiki. Think of it in terms of what can happen without the wiki...
If you have a standard open web server, and you allow the general public to put whatever HTML page they want on it, what protections are there to stop a very bad HTML page being made?
Also, in regards to open access to drop in Flash content, remember the plugin itself has had security issues before.
You might want to have a careful think about what content you are looking to provide, and what the case is for have it available.
If you enable uploads from an open internet, there is always a chance someone will link to something bad, often quite innocently from one of those "oh look at this funny video" links :)

You may also want to look at this extension FramedVideo
The PHP-memory-limit was at 8M but is now at 16M.
The PHP post_max_size is 20M.
And apache is restarted.
But the problem is still there:
I don't know what to do.

First, sorry for my poor english. I hope you will understand our problem.
I'm running a wiki for young children. Most of them don't understand the
exact meaning (or function) of the "Discussion" tab.
# PROBLEM :
Actually their problem seems to be the following :
The "Discussion" tab has two VERY different functions:
1) When it appears on an article (or another page) :
FUNCTION = TALK ABOUT THE PAGE/ARTICLE
2) When it appears on a user page :
FUNCTION = TALK TO THE USER
The problem is that the message in the "Discussion" tab is always the same
regardless of the type of page which is displayed. This message is the
following one (in MessagesEn.php) :
'talk' => 'Discussion',
My first attempt was to change it to something more explicit:
'talk' => 'Discussion about this page',
This appears to be of little help on "article" pages, but has brought more
confusion on "user" pages.
# BETTER SOLUTION
I would like to show a different message in the "Discussion" tab based on
the type of page :
1) On an article (or another page), the message should be :
'talk' => 'Discussion about this page', (ok, this is easy, i change it in
the MessagesXX.php file)
2) On a user page, the message should be different :
'talkuser' => 'Talk to this user', (for example)
I'm not sure but I think I will have to change something in the
SkinTemplate.php file (lines 667-672) :
$content_actions['talk'] = $this->tabAction(
$this->mTitle->isTalkPage() && !$prevent_active_tabs,
*If someone could help me* find what should be added exactly I would be
extremely grateful. This problem is really frustrating for the children who
don't understand how they can talk to another user.
Thanks in advance.
