Description Kurt Seifried 2010-12-04 07:30:52 UTC
Description of problem:
/usr/share/doc/mediawiki-openid-0.8.2/README.1st says to put the following line into LocalSettings.php:

require_once("/extensions/OpenID/OpenID.php")

This is wrong, no forward slash is needed as the extensions are stored in /usr/share/mediawiki/ and this directory is included in the search path. The documentation assumes a "normal" Mediawiki setup (with everything dumped into the web root). The line should be:

require_once("extensions/OpenID/OpenID.php")

Which works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

0.8.2

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mediawiki-openid
2. Follow install instructions
3. Go to wiki page and get a 500 server error
  
Actual results:

500 server error

Expected results:

200 request ok

Additional info:

simply modify the documentation and remove that first slash

Comment 1 Kurt Seifried 2010-12-04 07:36:06 UTC
Actually the require file should be:

require_once("/extensions/OpenID/OpenID.setup.php")

the extensions/OpenID/OpenID.php file is simply a require_once pointing at this file for backwards compatibility (so the documentation needs to be updated upstream as well).

This is contact attempt #2 (one month delay). Is the package maintainer still interested in this package?

This is contact attempt #3 (another week has gone by). Is the package maintainer still interested in this package?
