- PHP’s register_globals option is enabled
If you’re running PHP as an Apache module (not the default) you can use the following line in an .htaccess file at the root of your site:
php_value register_globals off
If you’re running PHP as CGI, you can insert ini_set() at the top of MediaWiki’s index.php file. Note that you’ll need to do this again every time you update your MW installation.
- PHP server API is cgi; using ugly URLs (index.php?title=Page_Title)
You can fix that using these instructions from WikiMedia. My preferred method is to install Mediawiki into another directory, say /mw, and use the mod_rewrite one-liner:
RewriteRule ^wiki/?(.*)$ /mw/index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
