Problem accessing the FembotWiki site

Post by osmarayearth » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:36 am

Hello I have a problem accessing the FembotWiki site. You are asking me for an extension for PHP, but I don't know how to install it. I suppose this might be the same problem as other members, so if you don't ask too much could you do a tutorial on how to install it? Because unfortunately the link that appears on the Fembotwiki page does not make it clear how this installation is done on windows.

Thanks in advance.

I also cannot access the Wiki server, and I am on a Mac. My error message reads:

MediaWiki 1.33 internal error

Installing some PHP extensions is required.
Required components

You are missing a required extension to PHP that MediaWiki requires to run. Please install:

json (more information)

Next time I see a wiki-mod I'll draw their attention to this. If anyone else is having trouble, please reply to this message only.

(originally from "FembotWiki refuses to load on my computer"; that post was deleted for redundancy)

I keep getting kicked to a blank white page labeled "MediaWiki 1.33" with the following error message:

"MediaWiki 1.33 internal error

Installing some PHP extensions is required.
Required components

You are missing a required extension to PHP that MediaWiki requires to run. Please install:

json (more information)"

Clicking the "more information" link says json is bundled with the PHP core, and a bunch of other stuff.

The wiki appears to be working again...I believe dreamhost was doing some maintenance on their ends which may have messed some things up. We will be looking into it this weekend but for now everything seems to be working fine.

I have logged into the site now and it is back to normal so it looks like a site or server update was actually being done, but the question is: Can this plugin issue come back and is it really necessary to install it?

I noticed that now, in addition to PHP and mySQL being installed as backends, there is now also ICU installed as well. http://site.icu-project.org/

That is most likely what was going on, and that was on the server end, which means Dreamhost did it.

Is there any way I can get an admin account, an account at all, so I can log on and add things? There are also several stories of mine that need to be edited or removed, but I'm not sure how I want to handle it.

Thanks. :)

It looks like Robotman created an account for you back in 2012, so you already have an account.
