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.

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.

1.2.3 released

  • added the most popular footer for dba
  • added remove for dba

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

Admin password security bugfix

This bugfix prevents anyone from logging in as the administrator using the encrypted password itself copied directly from the index.php file. Note that in order to take advantage of this bug in PhpWiki 1.3.4 or later (1.3.5pre at this time), someone would already need to have access to the PhpWiki index.php file via FTP, SSH etc.; nevertheless it is recommended that all PhpWiki sites who are using any version of 1.3.4 upgrade to the latest CVS version of PhpWiki 1.3.5pre, which includes many other small bugfixes and minor updates as well.... read more

1.1.6 out!

                  This is a major revision from previous releases and is a milestone in the project's

                  PhpWiki still installs "right out of the box." Just gunzip and untar in a directory  under
                  your web tree, and you have a Wiki.

                  The database schema has been vastly improved. It's almost normalized now ;-)
                  It will pave the way for a set of new features that will be in release 1.2.... [read more](/p/phpwiki/news/2000/06/116-out/)

1.1.5 out

1.1.5 has a lot of bug fixes and some new features; it's highly beta, but should be fun to use anyways. MySQL users should wait for the next release. If you are fine with running PhpWiki on top of a DBM file, this release should be fine.

Posted by Steve Wainstead 2000-06-10


PhpWiki is now hosted at Sourceforge. I hope you find this setup more useful; I will get the source code in CVS soon.
