I'm using mediawiki 1.18.2 and made it mandatory to login before reading or changing the wiki.
I also configured apache to use SSL for full site. The problem is that I had to create a virtualhost on apache to redirect everything from port 80 to 8099 (my SSL port, 443 was already in use), because after the login mediawiki is redirecting to 80 instead of 8099.
Did I miss something? That virtualhost redirect shouldn't be needed.
