I'm new to mediawiki and I have to say I'm very impressed. It was exactly what I was looking for. However, I'm in a bit of a pickle.
I tried to install an extension, the ConfirmAccount one. The installation goes fine but when I try and access update.php I get the following message:
You don't have permission to access /w/maintenance/update.php on this server.
Apache/2.0.64 (Unix) PHP/5.3.5 DAV/2 Server at localhost Port 8888
What on earth is going on? The index files work, I can add members, pages etc. But I just can't access anything in the maintenance folder despite the fact every file is read+write for admin.
I'm on Mac OS X, on a MAMP platform. My mediawiki version is 1.16.5, PHP version 5.3.5 (apache2handler) and MySQL 5.5.9
Where am I going wrong?
