The version of MediaWiki is the latest. I downloaded it this week. 1.5.5, I

Version of PHP - 4.4.1 (according to control panel of the host)
MySQL version - 4.0.25-standard
Apache version - 1.3.34 (Unix)
Operating system  	Linux
Kernel version  	2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp
Machine Type  	i686
PERL version  	5.8.4
It's been installed for about a week,
I've done it through the automatic configuration - Uploaded it through FTP,
ran the appropriate file, checked Hebrew and that's about all of it.
It never worked OK.

Now, it finally saves the pages, but only after that message that keeps

I haven't done any customizations except editing some pages and changing the

* whether it worked before and stopped working, or never worked
* if you've made any customizations to the configuration

The SearchUpdate class is defined in SearchUpdate.php, which is included
UpdateClasses.php, which is included from GlobalSettings.php, which is
long before this code is reached.

So, this shouldn't be possible unless:
* Something's broken
* The code was altered
* There's a bad mix of files from different versions, etc
