PhpWiki: 1.2.11 released

PhpWiki 1.2.11 adds small fixes from user patches. I just forgot to release them in the last years, sorry.

phpwiki-1.3.12_rc1 released

Release candidate for 1.3.12
It fixes several php-5.1.x issues.

Originally I only wanted to release a second patchset for 1.3.11, but then I found so many fixed bugs in CVS, which I backported to the 1.3.11 tree. So there's a new 1.3.12 release, which doesn't include all changes from CVS HEAD.
CVS HEAD struggles with better postgresql support, lots of pgsrc changes and esp. changes in the handling of internal links and its iterators, which are not fixed yet.... read more

phpwiki XMLRPC vulnerability security advise

The phpxmlrpc library phpwiki-1.3.x from 2002/08/30 up to today is using is easily exploitable. The updated version xmlrpc-1.1 from the website even contains the exploit code, so it's very likely that you webserver will get "rooted" in the next week if your using phpwiki-1.3.4 or later.

phpwiki 1.2.6 released

phpwiki-1.2.6 is a bugfix for the flatfile database backend only. Other backends are not affected.

Fixed TitleSearch and Backlinks for flatfile. (Thanks to some user Raj)
Enable MostPopular (hitcount storage) for flatfile.
Download: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6121

Note, that 1.2.x is not in active development, and probably insecure, but is 10x faster and has 10x less features than the current 1.3.x development branch. A new 1.3.11 release will arrive soon.

phpwiki 1.2.5 released

We promised not to touch this old stable branch (last touched 2001), but support requests got annoying, and it's several times smaller and faster then the big 1.3.x development branch.

The main feature is register_globals=off safety. Those reports got annoying. But I also
found several bugs with the dba, dbm, file and msql backends on GetAllWikiPagenames which affected dumpserial and zip.

1.2.4 released

PhpWiki 1.2.4 improves possible deadlocks in DBA, and fixes problems with DBA open failures.

PhpWiki 1.2.x is the old stable phpwiki series from 2001.
The patch is minimal, you might want to look at the seperate patch file instead.

Posted by Reini Urban 2004-05-04

1.2.3 released

  • added the most popular footer for dba
  • added remove for dba
  • fixed a warning on info page

You'll only need this if you are using the dba database handler.
