phpwiki 1.3.10 and AcceptPathInfo

    I'm having problems with my wiki at

    I'm running the following:
    RedHat ES v3
    phpwiki 1.3.10 using MySQL.
    Apache 2.0.46

    My htaccess file is this:
    <Files *.ini>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

    Try various wiki versions, like wiki, wikide, wikisidebar, ...

    <Files "wiki*">
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
    <IfDefine APACHE2>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    AcceptPathInfo on

    I was having problems with the wiki in general after a system crash, so I wound up setting up a new wiki site, then dumping the 1.3.4 database and loading it into the 1.3.10 database with no problems.

    It doesn't work properly. I need to have it use the UsePathInfo as true due to the previous setup under 1.3.4 and how users are linking to the site. At this point, I suspect that there's something missing in the Apache configuration or setup. I checked mentioned in the config.ini and the PrettyWiki link, but that didn't help.

    How can I verify that Apache is actually trying to use AcceptPathInfo in the config?

      I had similar problems under Fedora 1, and just remember that Fedora's Apache behaved differently.

      I got it working though, with similar pretty urls like you. but not with files, just with a fake dir.

      fake directory "wiki"
      AcceptPathInfo on

      SetOutputFilter PHP

      SetInputFilter PHP

      ForceType application/x-httpd-php

      Options +Indexes
      Action x-phpwiki-page /phpwiki/index.php
      ForceType x-phpwiki-page
      DirectoryIndex /phpwiki/index.php

      ini_set('include_path', ".:/home/rurban/phpwiki");
      include "/home/rurban/phpwiki/djindex.php";
      $DBParams['dbtype'] = 'dba';
      include "lib/main.php";

        So "/wiki" winds up being your main site and "/phpwiki" winds up being included via the .htaccess, right?
