not sure this is the proper way to report an issue -- please please point me to the right direction if not. I'm trying to install Mediawiki on CPanel (Apache, PHP 5, MySQL 5.5), and I have the following issues with 1.23.8 and 1.24.0.
The first issue is a variable not instantiated in the SQL install script, generating the error:
A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.
CREATE TABLE `user` (...) ENGINE=, DEFAULT CHARSET=binary
I shortened the SQL query intentionally, showing only that the issue is the missing ENGINE value. When I correct the maintenance/tables.sql script to replace /*$wgDBTableOptions*/ by "ENGINE=MyISAM, DEFAULT CHARSET=Binary, the script runs correctly.
The second issue comes right after, in the form of an error 500, no trace in the apache error_log. I tried fixing permissions on the imgages folder, to no avail. I'll try to debug further, and will post back here if I find anything, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks
