I'm trying to setup external authentication with MediaWiki. I've gone over
http://wiki.case.edu/CaseWiki:External_Authentication time and time again
but it's not exactly clear. Do I need to do only pieces of it? Everything?
I'm just not following. SO, I'm hoping someone can spell it out for me.
Let's say I have a PHP script (lets call it ourmethod.php) that puts up a
web page and authenticates a user using our method. Exactly how do I get
MediaWiki to display ourmethod.php for the login and what exactly do I need
to do to ourmethod.php to have it tell MediaWiki "this guys ok"?
Can anyone think of a method to completely remove edit revisions that have
been reverted from the database, or even just the revision history?
Before implementing spam prevention measures, we had a large number of edits
created by spam bots that flooded the revision history of a fairly large
number of pages. All of the edits were reverted (almost always by the very
next edit), but the revision history remains. In some cases, it's very large
and obscures the true authors of the page and makes diffs cumbersome.
I've seen the revision hiding option in MediaiWiki, but it isn't really
designed for what we need, because it makes the revision inaccessible, but
the entries are still logged in the history. And it's an edit-by-edit
process (which makes sense for its intended purpose).
I know we could wipe the edit history altogether, and we may end up doing
that on some pages, but ideally we could remove these "zero sum" edits and
the credits of the original edits would remain.

I want to change the main page of Mediawiki to my customized page thats
totally different in look and feel to that of the wiki main page. I am
having the html page and I want to extract that page out of Mediwiki.
How should I start? where I can find the html or php file representing the
main page so that I may alter it.
Friends, any type of help is highly appreciated. Please provide me any link
for such material on web.
Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know how to permanently delete images/files from MediaWiki. I'm
running version 1.13.1 . The files are taking up space on the server and I
need to free this space up. Is it just a case of adding a line of code to
the LocalSettings.php file? I won't need the images/files after they are
deleted so will not need to undelete them. Can anyone help me or recommed a
possible solution? Thanks.
I'm trying to install LaTeX support on my MediaWiki installation, but
I am having trouble building texvc on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
machine. I am using OCAML 3.10.1. When running "make" from ../wiki/
math/, I get the following errors:
ocamlopt -c util.ml

I have done a substantial amount of internet searching and could not
find help. I also do not have any experience with OCAML. Does anyone
have any ideas?
I have got install http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DynamicPageList
I'm using it into two wiki web site: gbrowse.org and other internal site.
wiki version is 1.13.1 and DPL version is 1.7.4
I'm testing some tips about dpl as
it works in http://gbrowse.org/wiki/index.php/GBrowse:Organisms
but it doesn't works in internal site and I have got this error:
The DPL extension (version 1.7.4) produced a SQL statement which lead
to a Database error.
The reason may be an internal error of DPL or an error which you made,
especially when using DPL options like titleregexp.

unique difference about wiki site is that gbrowse.org was born with

I don't have much experience with MediaWiki, so this may be a dumb question, but
I'm writing a tutorial for our team. In it I reference example URLs, which,
since they are just examples, don't go anywhere. When I enter something like

Any help for version 1.10.0 ??
