Help Getting Wikipedia URLs Working

Postby Deceth » Thu Jun 26, 2008 5:11 am


I have a very strange problem that I can't seem to figure out.

I have Wikipedia installed and even working... just not exactly how I would like it to: will load my Wikipedia page.

I'd actually like the URL to be:

However, when I change to use the other subdomain, my page loads white/blank...!

This is my .htaccess file

Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^wiki/(.*)$ index.php5?title=$1 [PT,L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^wiki/*$ wiki/ [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^/*$ wiki/ [L,QSA]

Any ideas why it would work for one subdomain but not the other? This makes no sense to me!

I get a 500 Internal Server Error for the wiki sub domain.

What does your error log say is causing the 500 error?
If you remove the mod_rewrite does the 500 error stop?
