After installation when I click to login, I get a blank page. Any idea? (talkcontribs)

Error log post.

(The solution outlined in 2012 further down this page doesn't work with mw 1.22)

After login I get redirected to the mediawiki login page. How can I get redirected to the page I was before or maybe the main page?

thx, Karsten PS: I use mw1.22.5

ok, now I'm logged in ... but how do I make myself an administrator or bureaucrat?

Best, Karsten

There should be a non-Google-Apps default account that you setup when you initially installed MediaWiki. (talkcontribs)

When using GoogleAppsAuthentification you cannot login with another user. There is no other login screen than the google-oAuth screen.

Jasper Deng (talkcontribs)

In that case, you can assign it through database access. See Manual:User rights.

  • mysql -u root -pPassword databasename
  • select user_id, user_name from user; -- find user_id of user, let's say: 2
  • insert into user_groups values (2, 'sysop'), (2, 'bureaucrat');
  • \q

GoogleAppsAuthentication MediaWiki 1.22.1

Is the extention still valid for MediaWiki 1.22.1? It looks like it doesn't work anymore.

Sometimes can not sign in after Google's response

It is very convenient to have people log on a wiki with Google credential. Thanks for Bertrand Gorge and Emanuele Nanetti for the great work.


An issue is that sometimes, even with Google return the right credential, mediawiki (19.2) does not get people log in correctly.

So far, I found the root cause was with SpecialUserlogin.php and patched it. Detail is here.

The navigation bar is visible to users who are not yet logged in. Is there any way to hide the navigation bar until users have logged in?

This might be a bit late for a response to this, but there is another extension for that which works quite well when combined with this one:

Hi, i am getting this error:

Auth request object error. Try again

Is this probably related to the variable in LocalSettings.php, 'GoogleAppsDomain'?? i've set it this way:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['GoogleAppsDomain'] = 'google.com/a/myDomain.com';

Thanks in advance!

The variable 'GoogleAppsDomain' should have the domain you want to allow logins from. e.g. I only want google accounts with domain example.com to login, such as mom@example.com or dad@example.com:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['GoogleAppsDomain'] = 'example.com';

This way, jimmy@gmail.com won't be authenticated.

Suggestion / Has any : set this up for multipel domains

Has anyone tried to get multiple domains working for instance gmail.com and somegoogleappaccount.com?

I would think you could just loop through the domains somewhere but I am not sure where. Anyone have an idea?

Are there any concerns with bots reading pages for emails?

1 (talkcontribs)

Can we use an obsfuator to stop this even the user:pages@googleappaccount.com is the page name?

I would like to know about the permission in the mediawiki, if I use this extension let say: sysops,beaurecrat,....
