00594: Edit form not showing

Summary: Edit form not showing
Created: 2005-11-14 18:20
Status: Closed - not a bug
Category: Bug
Priority: 5
Version: 2.0.13
OS: Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) (Red-Hat/Linux) mod_auth_pgsql/0.9.12 mod_jk/1.2.0 PHP/4.3.4

Description: The Edit links do not produce an edit screen, just a page with the title and no other text. I have followed all the instructions on setting up config.php. You can see this at:


My config.php minus all commented lines (I have made the password 'adminpass' temporarily to log this issue):

<?php if (!defined('PmWiki')) exit();

$WikiTitle = 'WorldWiki';

 $ScriptUrl = 'http://www.csidemedia.com/pmwiki-2.0.13/pmwiki.php';
 $PubDirUrl = 'http://www.csidemedia.com/pmwiki-2.0.13/pub';

$EnablePathInfo = 1;

$PageLogoUrl = "/csidemediafonty80.gif";

$Skin = 'pmwiki';

$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('adminpass'); $DefaultPasswords['attr'] = crypt('adminpass'); $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = array(crypt('confusticate'), crypt('adminpass'));

$EnableGUIButtons = 1;

$EnableUpload = 1; $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = '$1$S7amLA0P$dbazpc9LqRtsA6Cn3OIbr1';

$LinkWikiWords = 0; # disable WikiWord links

$EnableDiag = 1; # enable remote diagnostics

It looks as though you did not get a complete copy of the distribution onto your server -- many of the pages that normally exist in wikilib.d seem to be missing. In particular, the Site.EditForm page is missing on your site, which is why you're not seeing an edit form.

Try re-installing (make sure that all of the files are installed) and see if that resolves the problem.


Many thanks for the quick response - I love open source software! That was exactly the problem - looks like my web-based FTP client timed out before installing the last 17 files in the archive, and didn't inform me. All working sweetly now.
