I have successfully performed an Omeka1.5.3 install at domain http://transatlanticwriting.com, placed the most current Scripto plugin in the right place, created a database for the MediaWiki1.21.1 install, and, according to the final screen of the MediaWiki installation steps, I am successfully installing MediaWiki at http://transatlanticwriting.com/mediawiki/index.php.
My problem is when I go into the Scripto configuration screen and put the url to the MediaWiki API into the corresponding box, I get the dreaded "invalid MediaWiki API URL" message (the path I use is http://transatlanticwriting.com/mediawiki/api.php). I successfully installed Omeka/Scripto/MediaWiki combo on my local MAMP server three times in preparation to put it all online. But after four tries, reading the MediaWiki documentation,and reading the forum (such as this:http://omeka.org/forums/topic/scripto-installation-question and this: http://omeka.org/forums/topic/scripto-installation-invalid-mediawiki-api-url), I find that none of these solutions seem to apply. What could I be missing?
I have placed the "http://" before the url. I've looked for the "$wgEnableAPI = false;" line in my LocalSettings.php file, but it is not there. I did not find a
"$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;" line either.
I tried adding a "$wgEnableAPI = true;" line to the LocalSettings.php file, but to no effect.
I'm stumped. I had flawless installs to my MAMP localhost, and my hosting service, DreamHost seems to have everything in place on their end. What am I missing? I am hoping it is something simple, but I've tried all of the troubleshooting that looks "simple" to me!
Thanks ahead of time!
