I had some major problems getting PhpWiki 1.3.11_rc3 working in a PHP 5.0.4 environment -- namely, the global variables just weren't working properly. After much trial and error, I found I could put this at the top of lib/Request.php:
$GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS'] = &$_SERVER;
$GLOBALS['HTTP_GET_VARS'] = &$_GET;
$GLOBALS['HTTP_POST_VARS'] = &$_POST;
I had also put lines for the session and cookie superglobals in this spot, but after hours of tracking down login problems, I realized that I had to put that down in the spot after the session was started. So in the Request_SessionVars class, I put in the following after session_start();:
$GLOBALS['HTTP_SESSION_VARS'] = &$_SESSION;
$GLOBALS['HTTP_COOKIE_VARS'] = &$_COOKIE;
Then everything seemed to be working all right.
So, users, if you are using PHP 5 and are having problems with forms, logins, etc. -- try this fix!
As, PhpWiki developers, I hope your PHP 5 support improves soon, because it sure took me ages to figure this out! :)
All the best,
This was a problem with the new PHP5 register_long_arrays settings which was already fixed in 1.3.x CVS and the 1.2.10 stable release some month ago. See Bug #1180115
