Hi all,

I get the following error when I try and install a WIKI on a new site.


MediaWiki 1.4rc1 installation
    * PHP 4.3.10: ok
    * PHP server API is apache; ok, using pretty URLs
    * Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
    * PHP is configured with no memory_limit.
    * Have zlib support; enabling output compression.
    * Turck MMCache not installed, can't use object caching functions
    * Couldn't find GD library or ImageMagick; image thumbnailing
    * Installation directory: /a/[snip]/home/[snip]/public_html/wiki
    * Script URI path: /wiki
    * Warning: $wgProxyKey is insecure

      Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class namespace in
/a/[snip]/home/[snip]/public_html/wiki/includes/Namespace.php on line


I have previously *tried* to install a wiki. Older versions throw back
even more errors (but all of roughly the same form). Newer versions
merely throw back the namespace class error.

Is there a particular reason for this? If there is not one specific
reason,can anyone suggest how I go about finding out where the problem
lies? I'm on a fairly steep learning curve here, and clear help would
be brilliant.


p.s. the [snips] are me being aware that I don't know enough about
security yet :)
