Topic: mediawiki rendering problems with RHEL and php

Hi everybody,

I installed php-ldap a few hours ago, yum proposed me to update some packages, php, mysql and others. I didn't notice clearly which one and how much.
The problem is that now, some pages of my mediawiki appears normally, but some pages seems to have disappeared. When I try to modify them, the code is here, but visualizing doesn't work.

The wiki is shared in my labs, and I am very disappointed by this behaviour.

Anyone can help ?

Thanks in advance,
Bruno

Mediawiki is 1.21.3

Re: mediawiki rendering problems with RHEL and php

What was the content of the transaction ? (see yum.log or yum history)
Which was the previously installed version ?

I don't know how you can have install pohpMyAdmin 4.6 which requires PHP >= 5.5...

Is some code still using "short_tags" which are now disabled by default ?  (<? instead of <?php)

Remi,
Thanks you for your reply.
I'm so sorry to have posted on your blog, because the problem was a mediawiki problem:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:E … t_is_there
MediaWiki don't work with PCRE 8.34
(A patch is available to solve the problem...)

I was too tired yesterday to have a clear view of what happened !

Have a nice week end
Bruno
