Protect your MediaWiki from anonymous users.

After searching for some time on an easy way to protect an internal wiki. I found the following article useful. It goes in-depth into what you would need to change on a base MediaWiki configuration to only allow registered users to see the content within the Wiki. After following all the steps I know am able to login to my private Wiki over SSL! Thus allowing me to keep all my private and important notes online!

After following all the steps I know am able to login to my private Wiki over SSL! Thus allowing me to keep all my private and important notes online!

I’ve been using an amalgamation of hacks to track all the information I want to be able to recall later: del.icio.us for bookmarks, gmail for contacts and random notes, private blog entries for some organized content, and tracks for tracking projects. Blech. It’s just too much. My memory is too weak. What I really want is a comprehensive PIM (Personal Informatio Manager). And so I installed MediaWiki because that’s what Wikipedia uses and that’s what Dreamhost offers as a One-Click Install (e.g. the path of least resistance).

I thought I’d share with you all the the process of customizing the default install to create a private wiki. Following are the specifics to my install but this will probably be helpful to many with a different host or newer version.

Notepad++ v4.1 released

Notepad++ v4.1 released - Notepad++ is a free generic source code editor (and Notepad replacement), which supports several programming languages, running under the MS Windows environment. The version 4.1 is available. In this release not only the interface of Find in files dialog is improved distinctly, but find, replace and find in files dialogs are now 3 in 1. The version 1.73 of Scintilla include the CMake lexer. And just by chance, I worked a lot with CMake recently at work, so I updated Scintilla from v1.71 to v1.73, and supports the language of CMake. CMakeLists.txt is also available for the source code of Notepad++ (in "src" directory). It's tested only with the generation of VC project file, but not with the generation of MinGW makefile. 3 new plugins are added in this release : SpellChecker, NppExec and QuickText. SpellChecker help you to corect the tipos in your document. You should have aspell instaled to make it work. With NppExec plugin you can execute your commands or saved scripts without leaving Notepad++. It makes you triple your productivity! QuickText is a snippet manager. Once you define all your snippet in you beloved language, type the macro keyword then Ctrl+Enter - I can hear you say "wow". Another new feature is the clickable URL (http only). It's rather a gadget, but I like it. v4.1 fixed bugs and added features (from v4.0.2) : 1. Fix the crash issue while saving settings on quit. 2. Fix the crash issue while using the command line with one launched Notepad++ instance. 3. Enhance Find in files feature : * Improve Find in files user interface (more intuitive). * The search result (also for find in all opened files) is docked on the bottom of Notepad++. * Recursive search is optional. * Search result is collapsable by file. * User defined keywords for search result. 4. Add tabbing interface in Find dialog : Find/Replace/Find in files 5. Add clickable URL http link feature (double click to trigger). 6. Add cmake language support. 7. Add mark all without launching Find dialog (Ctrl+M). 8. Fix the ROFL (Recent Opened File List) bug : try to open a non-existing file from ROFL, the full file path doesn't be removed from ROFL. 9. Enhance the backup feature : in verbose mode, the file will be backed up in .\nppBackup directory. 10. Update Scintilla component to v1.73 For further information about this project, see : http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/ and the project page : http://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad-plus/ Don
