On August 24, 2012 my goal was to have FaceBook Comments on this page. It did not work with mediawiki 1.16. The page itself states it runs on mediawiki 1.18 so I decided to update to the latest version of mediawiki which was 1.19.1.

wgServer problem

Then I had

LocalSettings.php:$wgServer           = "http://www.linuxintro.org";

and

LocalSettings.php:$wgScriptPath       = "/staerk/thorsten";

As soon as I change to $wgServer to http://www.staerk.de and $wgScriptPath to "/thorsten" the style of the page changes to a very ugly one, just as if the skins were not readable any more.

Seems I had a line in the apache config that made apache redirect strangely:

   Alias /thorsten /srv/www/htdocs/staerk/thorsten/index.php

after uncommenting the thing worked.

Skin change

Now after the update the default skin is no longer MonoBook but VectOr.

Short URL issue

Before my articles were on http://www.staerk.de/thorsten/article, now I have to do the short URL rewrite again.
