LocalSettings.php not readable. Please correct file permissions and try again.

MichaelZ70 (talkcontribs)

I am running Mediawiki on a windows 2008 Server and sometime I receive the following error messageː

LocalSettings.php not readable. Please correct file permissions and try again.

After a reload of the page the message disappears and the page is loaded correctly. It appear not at special Wiki page and I haven't found when exactly the error message is displayed.

Anyone have an idea why it appears and how I can fix this problem.

Thank you in advance

i've got the same problem, did you solved? (talkcontribs)

Hard to believe that the permissions should suddenly be incorrect. I guess that what the error message tells you might not even be your problem.

Do you maybe have a race condition? The file is tried to be accessed by multiple processes at the same time. For the second one this fails and might give you this error?

File permission should be 644

mediawiki direct reversed login page, right corner of the screen does not display login account name, and Wiki does not show Login failed, but if the login screen, the [Remember me Status] option checked, that after login, account name the top right corner of the screen will display properly, we must ask why this option is checked, whether there are ways you can uncheck this option, but also during login display properly into account all information. Thank you

mediawiki login後直接轉回首頁,畫面右上角不會顯示登入的帳號名稱,而且Wiki並無顯示登入失敗,但是如果在登入畫面,將 [記住我的登入狀態]選項勾選,那登入後,畫面右上角的帳號名稱就會正常顯示,請問為何一定要勾選這個選項,是否有方法可以在不勾選這個選項,又可以在登入時,正常顯示都入帳號的資訊。謝謝

There seems to be a problem with this page. Sometimes it won't display properly. All edits in the edit history except a few have a line through them including the most recent edit. I'm hoping that editing this page fixes the problems. ~~~~

Resolved: The problem appears to be browser-specific - I am using Firefox with some script-blocking plugins. The strikethroughs - including that of the most recent edit - seem to be normal on this Wikipedia. I usually use a Wikipedia that doesn't implement Flow and can't "revision-delete" the most current edit, so having the newest edit threw me for a mental loop. Sorry for the needless distraction.

I have the text above with the line of the alphabet on a mediawiki glossary page. I have a long list of abbreviations building downwards in alphabetical order on the page.

I want to make links for each letter of the alphabet so that when you click on each of them you will be taken to that letter's first word in the abbreviations list.

I tried searching everywhere and I can find some talk and tutorials about it but I have given up now, as I simply can't find out which format of codes to add.

If for example I wish to find the abbreviation for the word TAUNT how do I code that?

code for T

code for TAUNT

or could I make the code for just the first T in TAUNT?

I hope someone can help me here :)

Infobox is not displayed, template link shows instead; Chinese Localization problem

Iampkuhz (talkcontribs)

I want to build a local Chinese Wikipedia database recently. However, I came up with 2 questions.

Infobox not display

After enable Extension:Scribunto, some infoboxes are not in correct format, such as NBA player Yao ming's page Yao_ming_page1.png. All the page content are included inside infobox.


Then I found that if I change the value of $wgLanguageCode from zh-cn to en , it show a little bit more formated yao_ming_page2.png. however, it can't parse infobox template as姚明 shows. It can't parse 'redirect template‘ (just show the template links).

By the way, I have import redirect.sql, templatelinks.sql and other dump files from .

Chinese localization chars not parsed

As shown in yao_ming_page2.png, there are wikitext like -{zh;zh-hans;zh-hant|本条目類似愛好者網頁。}- . How can I fix this?

Could anyone provide some advise or run into the same problem before?

Thanks a lot
