Re: problems with mediawiki behind nginx / apache (redirects to wrong url)

I have now a working (perhaps not optimized) solution.


1.) Add following variable to Mediawiki's LocalSettings.php:
$wgServer = 'https://servername';

I found this tip finally at
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/mediawiki-fix-internal-server-host-names-redirect-using-wgserver/

though they specify the entire server url with the path to the wiki,
whereas I specify just the protocol and the server



2,) As Mediawiki urls look like:
https://servername/wiki/index.php/blablabla
I have to be sure, that all these urls get redirected to apache

this I changed my setup to:

location ~ \.(php)$ {
include proxy.conf;
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8081;
}

location /wiki/index.php {
include proxy.conf;
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8081;
}

location / {
root /home/noma/web/nomassl;
index index.html index.htm index.php;
}



Perhaps this post can help somebdoy else. I was searching for quite some
time and was already close to giving up.
