I just did a install of mediawiki 3 days ago so I know absolutely nothing,
well I did get some great help on editing pages.
I know absolutely nothing about PHP.
I am having a hard time with a starting page.
After the install and initial startup of the wiki I go to:
Ok, so I figure I can just start here and add some text and get on my way.
However I am getting to the wiki by way of a re-direct on a Windows 2003 IIS
web server to an Apache web server
on a different machine on the network.
My re-direct is set for http://mywiki.xxx/index.php/Main_Page
BUT (a big but) the URL in the browser is
There is no Main_Page/ so I am prompted to edit the page:
There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title
e/> in other pages or edit
=edit> this page.
What is the suggested way of doing a re-direct from IIS?
I have to use IIS for some other web sites at the IP address so, that I can
see, I have to use a re-direct.
This is really confusing to say the least.
Thanks for the help.
