Platonides,Sorry, I am just now seeing your response.
I don't think it is a write access problem anymore.
Since this is a wampserver stack I am using, I cross posted this at the wampserver
When setting up mediawiki, got this message:
"PHP is linked with old MySQL client libraries. If you are using a MySQL 4.1 server
and have problems connecting to the database, see [dev.mysql.com
] for help.
Attempting to connect to database server as wikidb_user...failed due to authentication
errors. Check passwords."
I doubt this is your problem, since you are using a server stack that
cointains both apps. It would be very silly to create a package
containing mysql and php, with php unable to connect to mysql.
If you follow the link you learn all about old and new
passwords in MySQL since 4.1. But when I look at what is in wampserver, they are all 5+ so
i shouldn't be having this problem at all.
Someone suggested searching for my.ini outside of the wamp folder, but that came up
So I don't think there is some stray old mysql out there causing me
I created the wiki db and user myself in phpmyadmin,
If you can connect from phpmyadmin, you shouldn't have those problems in
and the installation script was able to connect,
Good. I assume that your php files are finally trated as such?
but then I got this same old libraries error message
again. And no, mw is definitely not installed.
Which message is it? What's the output of MediaWiki installer?
