I downloaded a project wiki from sourceforge (mediawiki 1.14.1),
configured apache with php 5.3.10 in /home/felix/public_html as
localhost/~felix and copied the wiki/ directory to

I configured php with display_errors=On, and I have seen php errors in
the browser window until I did a "chmod -R 777 wiki/". Once that is
fixed, I simply get an empty page when requesting index.php.

I don't see any relevant errors in the apache2 error log

The affected wiki is here:
(yes, the color is terrible, that's why I'm working on it ;-)

How can I debug this?

Thanks in advance!
