Haven't contacted him yet, wasn't sure if this was superwalrusland or Slime Salad causing the problem, and was hoping he'd see this, guess I'll PM him now.

I don't know anything about computers, someone else fix it. I'm also not personally seeing anything weird here.

Ok, I can see that there's a redirect to viajespirineoainsa now, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I can't figure out where it is in my wiki code but I don't know nearly enough to even know where to begin looking.

Have I mentioned that I don't like computers at all??

As far as I can tell, your wiki is still running Mediawiki version 1.15, which was the current version in the beginning of 2010.

So the first thing to do is to upgrade it to the latest version. That might even fix the whole problem right there.

Who is your web host?

Some web hosts might have an option to keep mediawiki automatically updated. I do have something like that set up for the ohrrpgce wiki, so if you need any further help setting it up to update itself, let me know.

Host gator. I tried updating and it told me I couldn't because my php version was too old but I can clearly see that it's not.

Ah, interesting. This might be a job for Host Gator's tech support.

I googled around and found that they seem to have a good reputation for medaiwiki hosting, and seem to have support for automatic updating, but it might not have been available back when you first set up your wiki.

They might be able to help you fix it faster than I could.

Yeah, they've got a service called Quickinstall that works well, but it didn't exist when I set up the site a couple years ago, so it can't even detect my current install.

I got some pointers from JSH and Shadowiii of where my scripts need to be fixed so I'm working on that now.

Edit: As far as I can tell it's fixed now and we're disease free. Thanks for calling this to my attention. The wiki is going to be taken down and replaced at some point since it's not allowing me to update it, but for now at least this is taken care of. Let me know if you see anything else weird.

It is probably possible to do a backup of the database, reinstall the wiki using the Quickinstall, and then restore the database. I even found a place that seemed to be saying that Host Gator would do that for you if you were moving to them from another host

Tried that earlier. Got this message, and then nothing would work: "MediaWiki 1.22 requires at least PHP version 5.3.2, you are using PHP 5.2.17."

According to my host, I'm actually using PHP 5.4.32.
