Overview

MediaWiki 1.11 may require some configuration changes in order to work properly with "nice URL" setups from earlier versions.

Nice URL Config

This may not work for everyone, and may not be necessary in all cases.

.htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine on 
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
        RewriteRule ^(.+)$ index.php/?title=$1 [PT,L,QSA] 
</IfModule>

LocalSettings.php

<php>$wgScriptPath = ""; $wgScriptExtension = ".php"; $wgScript = "$wgScriptPath/index.php"; $wgArticlePath = "/$1";

$actions = array('edit', 'watch', 'unwatch', 'delete','revert', 'rollback', 'protect',

 'unprotect','info','markpatrolled','validate','render','deletetrackback','print',
 'dublincore','creativecommons','credits','submit','viewsource','history','raw',
 'purge');

foreach ($actions as $a)

 $wgActionPaths[$a] = "$wgScriptPath/$1?action=$a";</php>

The for-loop and $actions array were suggested by Manual:$wgActionPaths; I've redirected all actions except "view".

An earlier installation of MW 1.11 worked just fine without the $actions code; I have no idea why. They are both running on the same server.
