Updating mediawiki to 1.19.1
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.
Then I had
LocalSettings.php:$wgServer = "http://www.linuxintro.org";
LocalSettings.php:$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.
Now after the update the default skin is no longer MonoBook but VectOr.
Short URL issue
After implementing https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Short_URL/Apache the style was lost as described here.
Now I have two situations. Either styles work but I cannot access www.staerk.de/thorsten/article or I can access www.staerk.de/thorsten/article but styles do not work. To switch between these two situations I need to do the following changes to LocalSettings.php and /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
