I just switched from MediaWiki 1.34 to 1.35, installed on Ubuntu Server 20.04, equiped with PHP 7.4, MqSQL 8 and Apache 2.4.46.

Everything went fine except Extension:VisualEditor. There were two troubles that took me about 3 hour and I decided to share this experience:

  • Initially VisualEditor didn't worked at all. When I did press the Edit button nothing happens.

I've solved this issue by removing extensions/VisualEditor and then install it again.

  • Editing of Sub Pages wasn't possible. I was receiving: "Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 404)" each time.

I've solved this issue by adding the directive AllowEncodedSlashes On within the Apache's VirtualHost configuration.

Now everything works great!
