I have determined that this is related to some of my settings in
LocalSettings.php RELATIVE to my website forwarding setup at Godaddy;
I'll try to explain:
Godaddy is set to forward to a virtualhost server on my office computer
is forwarded to beast.johnwfoster.com/pw
which translates to: beast.johnwfoster.com/var/www/pw
/pw is a symlink
to the directory /home/myuser/mediawiki-1.22
so far so good; apache virtual host is set to handle that request as;
Virtual Server Details
Document Root /var/www/pw
Server Name www.physicswiki.net
The snippet below is from my LocalSettings.php file & I think this is
where the issue lies:
$wgSitename = "PhysicsWiki";
## The URL base path to the directory containing the wiki;
## defaults for all runtime URL paths are based off of this.
## For more information on customizing the URLs
## (like /w/index.php/Page_title to /wiki/Page_title) please see:
$wgScriptPath = "/pw";
$wgScriptExtension = ".php";
## The protocol and server name to use in fully-qualified URLs
$wgServer = "http://localhost";
$wgCanonicalServer = 'http://physicswiki.net';
When any user logs in and clicks on the file upload link it simply
doesn't load. Additionally there are several other SpecialPages links
that do not load. BUT not all. It seems to be relative to using
localhost as the $wgServer. I've tried changing it to several other
settings, but then the entire site craps out. If I open a link using the
the page opens and
loads, BUT then I get the error message:
Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/9/9b".
In other sites that I've had this server on where the actual server was
the same as $wgServer and the base directory for the site
was /var/www/wikiname or if installed in /var/www with no linkages the
site will work. This is why for several years I've tried to manage this
site in a remotely hosted environment (I don't have the ability to set
up static IP addressing on my office computer as Verizon will not allow
it on residential systems.)I can NOT afford the expense of buying server
time or buying a business site from Verizon; I was able to host it on
CloudShards with NO issues, but they decided I was using too much CPU
power & cut me off.
Any Tips or ideas are greatly appreciated.
