So I installed phpwiki (using the flatfile db config) and thought I’d be smart and set it up to run as cgi. Worked great! I was adding and editing pages like mad.
But every time I tried to access the admin part I got server errors (malformed header). After some furious googling I deduced that it was choking on an attempt to use http authentication for access to admin functions. Apparently php running as cgi does not support http auth. So…I tried removing the php-as-cgi .http file and thought I was golden (I was able to use http auth to finally access the admin page, yay) but of course, the script choked with open_basedir restrictions the moment I tried to write anything.
I’m not sure where to go. Maybe just try another wiki. Any suggestions?
