Usually this means that mediawiki detects the new
server as not supporting
PATH INFO (usually deoends on the combination of server software and which
php sapi is in use), so it cannot use the automatic short url setup. In
such a case you usually need to setup rewrite rules to make it work,
although you can also try adjusting $wgUsePathInfo to override the feature
support autodetection if you think path info is really supported.
OK, this sounds like we're moving in the right direction as I don't
recall needing a rewrite rule for this before. I will check with my
I don't find $wgUsePathInfo in my LocalSettings.php; I'm currently on
MediaWiki 1.17.0, which I recognize is pretty ancient at this point.
This was one of the main motivations for changing hosting providers
so that I could get the software upgraded. At this point, I've
migrated the content and that all seems to work OK except for the
form of the URL and one other issue, which I will post here separately.
