Extension talk:WebStore

Unfortunately, documentation seems to be missing completely.

Wonderful. So, we have guys who write extensions, but nobody knows how that works ! Welcome in the marvellous world of MediaWiki. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 11:06, 26. Mai 2008. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I guess Tim Starling is paid for writing code, not documentation ;) That said, installation seems to be quite easy:
  1. Copy all the files to extensions/WebStore
  2. Add require( "$IP/extensions/WebStore/WebStore.php" ); to your LocalSettings.php
  3. Install the 404 handler to Apache as detailed on the extension page
No guarantees, but this is what I figured out myself by reading the source code. The extension has been running on my site for a few months without problems.

I just added these instructions to the extension page. --Tbleher 11:41, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I have no doubt about the altruism of informaticians... that's so easy to find the good information.

What does mean "Using Apache, adding something like..." ? That is not detailed on the extension page. Thanks. 11:55, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Read up on the ErrorDocument statement for Apache webservers (e.g. [1]). In short, the line listed on the extension page has to be added to the configuration for the Apache virtual server that serves the MediaWiki content. The files should (under Linux, at least), be under /etc/apache2. If in doubt, ask your local admin. --Tbleher 12:43, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

still nothing. Webstore doesn't work.
