    Sorry BN realised I cannot download wamp to extract LocalSettings.php.

    • BN says:

      Ron, we already changed that line to true from false and had no problem at all, so we will email it to you. Just rename your current LocalSettings.php to LocalSettings.php.bak then put our file in place ;)

  2. Ron says:


    Many thanks for that. I did not receive your email so I checked the email address and noted I made a mistake in the address! I am used to having to type my email address. I do apologise for the trouble I am putting you to.

    Kind regards

  3. Ron says:

    Thank you very much for all your help and perseverance.

    Thank you for your email. For the sake of others who may benefit from my mistakes and your advice, I thought I should update this thread.

    One of my problems was that I used the wrong text editor when editing the LocalSettings.php file. As you advised, I downloaded the free text editor ‘Notepad++’, which worked fine.

    Using ‘Notepad++’ I was able to edit LocalSettings.php to upload ‘pdf’ and ‘doc’ files to the wiki by adding the two lines of scripts under:

    require_once( “$IP/includes/DefaultSettings.php” ); (UNDER THIS)

    $wgFileExtensions[] = ‘doc’;

    $wgFileExtensions[] = ‘pdf’;

  5. i’m new here, and only need to tell hello!

    Trying to make a blog or website myself so this site is a good place to get ideas. Keep posting though as some of the ads are right up my alley!

    Quite a good post. This informative article sums up for me just what this topic is focused on and some of the essential benefits that can be resulting from knowing about it like you. A friend once remarked that you have a totally different approach when you do something for certain as opposed to when you’re simply just toying with it. In the case of this topic, I believe you adopt, or start to take, a more professional in addition to thorough approach to what and how you are writing, which in turn helps you to carry on and get better and help others who don’t know anything about what you have provided here. Thank you.

    I actually wanted to type a quick message to be able to thank you for the great techniques you are placing on this website. My prolonged internet search has finally been recognized with reasonable points to talk about with my co-workers. I would mention that most of us site visitors actually are undeniably blessed to exist in a really good website with very many brilliant professionals with very helpful points. I feel pretty fortunate to have discovered the weblog and look forward to really more cool minutes reading here. Thanks a lot once more for everything.

    Hi JLBN

    Just thought I would say hello. I hope you are all well. I am sure you have guessed from the fact that you have not heard from me that my wiki is fine.

    Kind regards

      Hi Ron,

      Long time no hear from you. Hope you and your Wiki doing well. If interested in something else to expand your website and need help, let us know. For example, you might want to setup a forums for people to come and discuss what you have on your Wiki… ;)

    Hi JL BN

    I just thought that I would say hello. I hope that you and families are both fine and all is well.

    My wiki is working fine. What reminded me was I went to phpMyAdmin and got stuck before I remembered to clear out the cookies etc.

    Kind regards

      Hi Ron,

      Long time no hear from you :)

      If your Wiki is working fine, what really bother you?? Maybe a little more detail so we can help :)

  12. Ron Barker says:


    Nothing is bothering me. It is just when I am reminded of all the help you gave me. I really appreciate the help you gave me. I would not have a wiki if it wasn’t for your help.

    Kind regards

    Hi JLBN

    I spoke too soon. I have just been getting to know event viewer on Microsoft Windows and notice an error with WAMP. When I checked MySQL Log I get the error below. The Wiki does open and once it opens no further errors are recorded.

    Can you assist me? Kind regards Ron Barker

    PS: What I mean by “once it opens no further errors are recorded” is that the error does not occur until I restart my computer thereby restarting WAMP. Cheers
