Re: Wiki login is broken?

I just tried applying that fix and it didn't seem to work. I changed my password to one containing many special characters and I wasn't able to log in. The logic is sound, but as they say in the issue, I can't spot any usage of htmlspecialchars. Perhaps if someone finds out exactly what phpBB does t...

Re: Wiki login is broken?

Sorry, I put this on ice for a while because I thought I'd have to look into updating the mediawiki-phpbb bridge myself. Last time this happened it was because of a headache about ciphers and stuff. However, looking at the code, the "You need a phpBB account to login." is just a generic me...

Re: Server move incoming, expect a little bit of downtime

I copied over the theme straight from the server so the vertical spacing issues must be a side effect of updating Mediawiki... somehow.

I commented out the size overrides I could find to hopefully bring it in line more with the default template.

Re: Invalid form submitted when logging in and other problems...

There are also other issues like me being logged out but I still see my name at the bottom of people ...

Re: Server move incoming, expect a little bit of downtime

The wiki should be working now. Let me know if anything is exceptionally broken (except for the theme, I know about that already). One of the things I had to update was Semantic MediaWiki, which had a scary warning about needing to migrate some stuff. If you see something strange in the fancy autoge...

Server move incoming, expect a little bit of downtime

The current server is getting dangerously dusty so I am currently in the process of moving stuff over to a new home. Once I've got most of the large stuff transferred I am going to lock the forums and wiki and transfer the databases over for those. Therefore, there will be an hour or two where you m...

Re: Wiki Issue

Indeed. It wasn't able to write to /tmp because it was read-only and that broke a few things while that was happening.
It shouldn't happen again.

Indeed. I've had some bad experiences with cloud hosting, and I also use the server for other things, so a machine all to my own is nice.
