Yeah, i checked that too.. and at the time still a no go. however i have everything up and running right now. i think it was all due to the fact i had php4 installed and i installed php5 over the top of it.. cuz once i removed both and installed php5 by itself everything worked right away.
Wiki is installed and working. im happy about that. got the setup completed and everything. once i moved the localsettings.php file over though and clicked on the link it told me the page didn't come up. it comes up with an error and the reason why is because it's forcing a www. in front of my FQDN. anyone know how to make that stop?
also, the other question i have is about MYSQL. durring the wiki configuration it asks for a mysql user. you can put in a new one or use the superuser. i tried having it create one for me but that didn't work. so i tried the superuser, which wasn't working either. i tried mysql and root. well i looked up some stuff and one step i missed from xushi's guide was this
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
however i don't understand it. once i added that, the mysql user worked... but before that i had already gone to that user to set a password (through KDE). if anyone can shed some light in that direction as well that would be very helpful.
