I have installed MediaWiki into a subdomain at wiki.kjodle.net. I have tried to configure short URLs using the following three methods, none of which have worked.
1) I have tried the instructions I found here
2) and here
3) and here
and each time, when I access my wiki at wiki.kjodle.net/MainPage, I get the following error:
The requested URL /Main_Page was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.[/color]
Additionally, when I use method #3, and try to access just wiki.kjodle.net, I get this error:
[color=#000080]Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.[/color]
If I delete the htaccess file, I can still access my wiki at: http://wiki.kjodle.net/index.php?title=Main_Page
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I am assuming that the root directory of my wiki is actually wiki.kjodle.net (when using my FTP client), and that is where I have been installing the htaccess file. Should it go elsewhere?
I'm not a total noob, since I was able to change the default image, but this one really has me stumped.
