PermaLink Getting MEDIAWIKI to send emails using a Lotus Domino Server29.12.2005 14:18
MEDIAWIKI has some functions to send emails, for example you can have MEDIAWIKI mail you a new password.
You have to set $wgEnableEmail = true; in LocalSettings.php to enable that function. By default the standard PHP mail function is being used, whatever that means, it did not work for me - I assume this is due to the fact that I have neither Sendmail nor Postfix running on my Linux server.
In LocalSettings.php you can set
$wgSMTP = array(
 "host" => 'myhost.mydomain.myTLD',
#  "IDHost" => 'domain for MessageID',
   "port" => "25",
    "auth" => false,
#     "username" => user,
#      "password" => password
      );

This will use PEAR Mail which is not included with MEDIAWIKI. On my SUSE distribution I used yast and found that "PHP Extension and Application Repository" - "php5-pear" was already installed. I was not able to start pear using "pear" in a shell but "pear5" did it.
Now I was able to install the mail component by using the pear package manager:
pear5 install Net_Socket
pear5 install Auth_SASL
pear5 install Net_SMTP
pear5 install Mail
Another test in my WIKI still failed because Mail.php was not found.
I had to edit LocalSettings.php again to change
ini_set( "include_path", ".:$IP:$IP/includes:$IP/languages" );
to
ini_set( "include_path", ".:$IP:$IP/includes:$IP/languages:/usr/share/php5/PEAR/" );
but the path may vary for other distributions.

The last part is to exclude the IP-Address of the WIKI server from all anti-relay options in Lotus Domino.


PermaLink Menubar and Toolbar disapearing in Windows Explorer27.12.2005 18:56
I had the problem that the toolbar and the menubar disapeared in the Windows Explorer. Thanks to WinTotal I managed to repair my Explorer. The trick was to delete the key ITBarLayout from the registry-key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\Explorer.

PermaLink Comma in filename or directory name not working with Lotus Notes22.12.2005 15:23
Give that a try: Create a database copy and use a comma in the filename. For example, make a new copy of your names.nsf and name it names_for_PMR_12345,999,618.nsf. This will not work neither in Notes 6.5.x nor in Notes 7.0.x. There is SPR RSCR5V6BBG for that problem but nobody else did open a PMR for that problem yet so it is unlikely to be fixed ever.

PermaLink IBM Lotus Domino for Hosted Organisations22.12.2005 14:19
I just tried to setup Domino for Hosted Organisations. This installation mode chaged it's name from ASP (Application Service Provider) to xSP (whatever? Service Provider) over the last years since it was introduced with Domino 6.x.
I tried it with Domino 7: The Administration help says that on W32 you have to use the argument xsp on the setup.exe. This did not work for me, the setup.exe complained that XSP is not a valid argument.
My solution to the problem was that I edited the notes.ini before I started the Domino Server for the first time (before serversetup coming up). I added ASPInstall=1 and serversetup did install Domino with Hosted Organisation support as I tried again.
