When trying to edit using the extension Parsoid is throwing a 406.

Is this a known response?

216.248.100.66 (talkcontribs)

I am seeing the same pattern. I am able to create a new page using VisualEditor without problem but if I try to edit it gives a 406 error. If I check the log file on the Parsoid server it has the error message "Not acceptable". In checking the code for Parsoid in its Git repository, it looks like the error is produced by a check of the content version.

I am also getting a 406 error. I was trying to set up parsoid on another server and getting this. I thought it was me configuring wrong but now I wonder. @Gwsampo, was this already working on your server and now it is giving 406 error?

When using postman to GET

{

    "error": {

        "code": "apierror-visualeditor-docserver-http",

        "info": "HTTP 406",

Maybe a bug in 1.30.0 mediawiki

Working in 1.31.0-alpha mediawiki

Steps to resolve was completing removing old mediwiki and installing latest development version from github and latest development version of visualeditor from git

Something like this

cd /var/lib/mediawiki

mv /var/lib/mediawiki /var/lib/mediawikiold

git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/core.git

mv /var/lib/core /var/lib/mediawiki

Installed composer globallly (https://getcomposer.org/)

/var/lib/mediawiki composer update --no-dev

test mediawiki config page working

copied old skins

copied old extensions (excluding visual editor)

cd extensions

git clodn https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor.git

cd VisualEditor

git submodule update --init

completed wiki setup

worked

I'm having the same problem ..

93.39.230.4 (talkcontribs)

Hi same problem here. Media Wiki 1.30, Visual Editor 1.30

Dbummy (talkcontribs)

Seems that MW1.30 works with Parsoid 0.8.0all but NOT with Parsoid 0.9.0all. if you run "dpkg -s parsoid" it will show you Parsoid version. I have mirrored setups (Ubuntu Server 16.04) with each of the versions of Parsoid and one is working and the other is giving 406 error. Trying to downgrade now.

Dbummy (talkcontribs)

Was able to get mine working (MW 1.30 / Parsoid 0.9.0all) by downgrading Parsoid to 0.8.0all.

--Ubuntu Server 16.04--

apt-get purge parsoid

wget https://people.wikimedia.org/~ssastry/parsoid/debs/parsoid_0.8.0all_all.deb

dpkg -i parsoid_0.8.0all_all.deb

apt-mark hold parsoid

82.204.2.90 (talkcontribs)

Worked for me, I couldn't find 0.8.0 via apt before so thanks for these steps

Don't forget to check your configs too!

185.154.146.37 (talkcontribs)

This worked for me!

216.248.100.66 (talkcontribs)

For me, changing the version of Parsoid to 0.8.0 was the solution. While it is noted in Parsoid's documentation that you need to be careful to use the right version of Parsoid for the version of VisualEditor you have, I didn't see any mention in the VE documentation as to which version was appropriate.

93.39.230.4 (talkcontribs)

I am on Centos 7 and I am not able to install the .deb file in the download page for the 0.8.0

I have tried:

dpkg -i parsoid_0.8.0all_all.deb

but I receive these errors:

parsoid depends on nodejs (>= 4.0.0); however:

  Package nodejs is not installed.

parsoid depends on logrotate; however:

  Package logrotate is not installed.

parsoid depends on adduser; however:

  Package adduser is not installed.

But I have installed node: v6.13.1 and npm: 3.10.10

Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks

Dbummy (talkcontribs)

The "deb" file is for Ubuntu or Debian based systems. I think with CentOS you would have to find the "rpm" file or compile from source. If using the rpm file, You would use "yum" instead of "apt-get". You may even be able to install the old version using yum. I know you can with apt-get in Ubuntu if the package is still available but it wasn't in my case.

217.148.121.13 (talkcontribs)

Already tried, in the repo there is only the last version.

I think I am stucked until they update the Visual Editor....

77.118.171.223 (talkcontribs)

Edit the file ParsoidConfig.js.

Its in ----> lib/config/ParsoidConfig.js

Change the following line from TRUE to FALSE:

ParsoidConfig.prototype.strictAcceptCheck = false;

Greets,

This "fixed" the issu for my setup.

60.11.42.35 (talkcontribs)

Thanks,It's work.Looks good.

62.2.90.162 (talkcontribs)

Googled for hours until i found this solution...works for me, a fresh installation of mediawiki & parsoid

12.118.115.198 (talkcontribs)

Thanks so much. Worked for me as well.

186.46.139.226 (talkcontribs)

Thank you that fixed it!

Just for documentation purposes the error I had on the parsoid.log file was:

Error:

{"name":"parsoid","hostname":"wiki","pid":1453,"level":60,"logType":"fatal/request","wiki":"wiki$1","title":"Ejemplo","oldId":null,"reqId":null,"userAgent":"VisualEditor-MediaWiki/1.30.0","msg":"Not acceptable.\ntext/html; charset=utf-8; profile=\"https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Specs/HTML/1.6.1\"\ntext/html; charset=utf-8; profile=\"https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Specs/HTML/2.0.0\"\n","stack":"","httpStatus":406,"longMsg":"Not acceptable.\ntext/html; charset=utf-8; profile=\"https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Specs/HTML/1.6.1\"\ntext/html; charset=utf-8; profile=\"https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Specs/HTML/2.0.0\"\n","levelPath":"fatal/request","time": ""}

Solution:

Edit the file ParsoidConfig.js.

Its in ----> lib/config/ParsoidConfig.js

Change the following line from TRUE to FALSE:

ParsoidConfig.prototype.strictAcceptCheck = false;

Thanks!

Compumatter (talkcontribs)

Yep that did it ! Solved.

  • sudo vim /usr/lib/parsoid/src/lib/config/ParsoidConfig.js
  • ParsoidConfig.prototype.strictSSL = false;
  • sudo service parsoid restart
  • Done
Oleolsenkjhølkølk (talkcontribs)

Wait, what should i do if there is no such line in my config file?

There is only a "strict check for ssl", but setting that to false didn't solve the problem.

Is there something missing from my files?

185.125.207.249 (talkcontribs)

Posting to let everyone know that the post above exposes a solution that doesn't involve manually downloading the previous version of parsoid and freezing it on Ubuntu via apt mark. Be sure to restart the parsoid service after making the change.

Seb35 (talkcontribs)

You can also change the config file instead of Parsoid code: edit /etc/mediawiki/parsoid/config.yaml and add strictAcceptCheck: false at the same level as "userAgent" in the beginning, i.e. just under "conf". Example:

services:
  - module: lib/index.js
    entrypoint: apiServiceWorker
    conf:
        # For backwards compatibility, and to continue to support non-static
        # configs for the time being, optionally provide a path to a
        # localsettings.js file.  See localsettings.example.js
        #localsettings: ./localsettings.js
        
        # Set your own user-agent string
        # Otherwise, defaults to:
        #   'Parsoid/<current-version-defined-in-package.json>'
        #userAgent: 'My-User-Agent-String'
        
        # /!\ COMPATIBILITY for Parsoid 0.9.0 with MediaWiki before 1.31
        strictAcceptCheck: false
        
        # Configure Parsoid to point to your MediaWiki instances.
        mwApis:
...

PS: this is just an improvement over the above solution, all merits are due to .

213.33.64.46 (talkcontribs)

Don't forget to restart Parsoid with `service parsoid restart` after changing the configuration! This is the cleanest solution to get Parsoid 0.9.0all working with Mediawiki 1.30!

Thank you too much, my friends!

I spend hours to search in baidu and google, it really frustrated me.

Thanks! All my friends!

真的非常感谢,前辈们!

I have solved this error, there was missing domain name in these files, i would suggest all of you to check the domains in these files.


[Root]/config.yaml,

[Root]/sys/mathoid.js,

[Root]/v1/mathoid.yaml

Rajeshrajesh.35 (talkcontribs)

These errors are related to restbase.

192.196.142.91 (talkcontribs)

@Rajeshrajesh.35

Hi,

I have the same error but it seems that I have no problem with domain names.

Have you change anything else ?

Rajeshrajesh.35 (talkcontribs)

No, is individual services running as

Parsoid?

Restbase?

Method?

Also, check port is enabled so that API connect internally, still you have problem drop me email [my user name] @ gmail.com
