Well, for no good reason that I could see and while it was sitting on 
that open page with the last mentioned error, the website suddenly 
popped in and appears totally functional.  

There is still, though, one very annoying problem and that is that 
the main page requires the use of index.php5 at the end of the URL 
and is not assuming it.  If attempts are made to open the page 
without the index.php5 at the end, I get this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting 
/home/sandy/htdocs/brooklyn/includes/Exception.php on line 160

Is this something I need to discuss with my website provider, or is 
there a setting that I need to change somewhere in the Wiki itself, 
or in LocalSettings.php?
