[Mediawiki-l] Special Pages gone after 1.8 upgrade

Well I was indeed running php 5.0.4 on an X86_64 machine in 64 bit mode. 

I built the 5.1.4 using the Fedora 5 source RPMS and upgraded.
I then restored my mediawiki 1.7 database and reran the upgrade process.
I still have no access to the special pages and can't log in.

Any other ideas?

Are you running PHP 5.x on an x86_64 (AMD64) machine? If so, upgrade to 
PHP 5.1. Older versions of PHP are broken on 64-bit, which ends up 
corrupting data.
