I'm new to MediaWiki and I have an installation question. I was unable
to find the answer in the docs, so please bear with me.
After selecting the language I'm getting the following message:
Your session data was lost! Check your php.ini and make sure session.save_path is set to
an appropriate directory.
I have the following configuration: a Linux shared host, Mediawiki is
in /home/myusername/wiki/w directory, it would be installed on a
subdomain (say, wiki.example.org/w
In the subdomain's root I have a php.ini which contains, among
other, the following:
session.save_handler = files
session.save_path = "/home/myusername/wiki/tmp"
session.use_cookies = 1
session.use_only_cookies = 0
session.name = WIKISESSID
session.cookie_path = "/wiki"
In this tmp folder I see indeed some session files and I can confirm
that these are from Mediawiki (I remove them, then I try to install
Mediawiki, and they appear there).
What am I doing wrong?
With best regards from Ukraine,
