Re: Mediawiki works only if I ssh on the server
[In reply to]
Thanks for your answer but I doubt it is the problem I'm having. First
of all, it is a public server with static public IP. Second, it's only
Mediawiki that has that problem -other websites on the same machine work
Mediawiki works from a directory in my home which is symlinked to
/var/www : I've read that there can be permission problems in this case,
but why should permissions change whenever I ssh in the machine?
