01182: Empty page after editing

Summary: Empty page after editing
Created: 2010-04-06 07:41
Status: Awaiting feedback
Category: Bug
From: Brinkman
Priority: 5
Version: 2.2.15
OS: SunOS/Apache/PHP 4.3.10

Description: After editing a page and pressing the save button, I get an error of my browser. I tried both Konqueror and Firefox. Konqueror refers to the error as a time-out error (although you immediately see the error page) and Firefox says it has received an empty page. The edit itself succeeds.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~brinkmanr/wiki/index.php?n=Main/WikiSandbox
  2. Click Edit
  3. Change something
  4. Press save
  5. Get an error message

Details of the server can be found http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~brinkmanr/phpinfo.php

Hello. Do you have any recipes or local configurations enabled on your wiki? If yes, does this problem happen if you disable the recipes? If not, is there something in the server error log about it? --Petko April 06, 2010, at 12:27 PM

It's a fresh install without any recipes. The only thing changed was the "mkdir wiki.d; chmod 777 wiki.d". Unfortunately, I'm not the administrator of the webserver. So, I don't have access to the server logs. --Brinkman April 07, 2010, at 03:26 AM

What changes did you make to your config.php as compared to the sample? Or are you operating without a config.php? --Peter Bowers April 07, 2010, at 04:42 AM

None. I just copied docs/sample-config.php to local/config.php --Brinkman April 07, 2010, at 06:28 AM

I figured out that with a newer webserver (Apache:2.2.4 / PHP:5.2.6) the problem does not occur. If I try to edit a page on http://utrecht.ewi.utwente.nl/~brinkmanr/wiki everything works fine. The server utrecht.ewi.utwente.nl mounts the webpages from wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl (which is rather outdated). --Brinkman April 07, 2010, at 06:52 AM

Could we assume that this is not a PmWiki bug that requires a change to the core? --Petko April 22, 2010, at 05:21 PM

I'm having the same problem, on a fresh install, on a local computer, using the current pmwiki and current XAMPP, on current Firefox. Edit works, but page just stays on "Waiting for localhost..." after clicking the 'Save' button. Also happens when clicking the "Edit" button on all pages (intermittent). --DMobley?
