Halfway on the wiki installation - why?


#1

I did go through most of the process. But in the end
I enter:

http://www.ferropedia.com/index.php

and then I get an “unencountered page”

what should I do?

It “works” for me :wink: Browsing to http://www.ferropedia.com/index.php present the Media Wiki logo, the version number (1.8.2) and a link to “setup” your wiki.

Could you have forgotten to clear your caches/re-load your screen?

That’s what I said: it gets this far. When I clic the set up link, then I fall into this unexistent page. Exactly what happened to you,but you are not the owner - I am. Wasn’t I supposed to access a set up page or something?

Well, that’s not what you said - you said

I was pointing out that when you enter “http://www.ferropedia.com/index.php” you don’t get an "unencountered page, you get a page instructing you to setup you wiki. :wink:

That said, I understand what you meant: when click/enter/browse to “http://www.ferropedia.com/config/index.php” you get an error message: Not Found

The requested URL /config/index.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Further, if you “backtrack” your url, you will see that entering http://www.ferropedia.com/config/ also return a similar 404 error - the fact is that the /home/yourusername/ferropedia.com/config directory either does not exist, or is being “short-circuited” by an re-write rule.

This makes me wonder if your paths were set-up correctly during installation - as I did not see what you enetered, and have not seen your confirming email (with instructions) I don’t know where the problem lies - but I suspect it has to do with your path(s).

Myabe someone who knows more about the MediawWiki “one-click” install process has a better idea of what has happened. :wink:
