installed and set the system to not auto accept registration but there wasn't any link
to create an account so I found this:
I followed the instructions except for:
Change to the MediaWiki directory and run:
The link to create account appeared (top right of wiki.cn2en) and when clicked on you can
login or 'request one'. Clicking on that took me to a page that I could't see
unless logged in but I found a fix - by whitelisting that page in the LocalSettings.php
(that's where most of the adding extensions, customising takes place).Now you can view
the request page however after entering a username and password you get the error:
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The
last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "efCheckIfAccountNameIsPending". Database returned error
"1146: Table 'cn2en_wiki.account_requests' doesn't exist
So I went back to the mediawiki website and found the extension discussion page, where
someone had posted the same problem, but with a fix that I don't know how to do:
I can see the update file http://wiki.cn2en.org/maintenance/update.php
but i don't
know how to 'run' it.
_ My hosts are looking into it.
That error is on every page now.
