installed - why won't help links work?

    I've finished installing phpwiki. Everything seems to work fine except the help links - Help:AddingPages and Help:HowToUseWiki are dead links.

    Do I need to manually install the help myself or something?

      Please edit your InterWikiMap page
      and add
      Help Help/

      As far as I can see it's already there, and when I click on the Help link on InterWikiMap it does go to the help pages at

      The links on the homepage still aren't working - they're trying to go to for some reason.

      I'm using the Crao theme - don't know whether that has a bearing on things or not.

        I see the problem. I falsely assumed that the default USE_PATH_INFO is true for you. You still use the /phpwiki/index.php?pagename=%s urls.

        Please fix yout InterWikiMap to
        Help /phpwiki/index.php?pagename=Help/

      I didn't have the ;USE_PATH_INFO=false line uncommented so it should have been set to true.

      I put in the line USE_PATH_INFO=true anyway and the links are working.

      Thanks a lot for your help and wiki software!

      If I access phpwiki like this:

      The help links look like this:

      And everything works.

      However, if I access the page like this:

      Note that both the "www." and "index.php?pagename=" parts of the first address are missing!

      Finally, if I click on the HomePage link in the top right corner of the default page, I go to:

      And the help links look like this:

      Why the three flavors?

      In config.ini I changed this line:

      ;SERVER_NAME = ""


      SERVER_NAME = ""

      Now it works.

      Sorry - its just:

      SERVER_NAME = ""
