Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.14.0-1
Severity: normal


Please consider...

When I try to point the iceweasel web browser at


it pops up a little window titled


which says

    you have chosen to open 
    which is a: phtml file

    What should iceweasel do with this file?

        Open with <browse>

        Save file

        Do this automatically for files like this from now on.

                                <cancel>    <OK>

I seem to have fixed it by 

    1.) installing the libapache2-mod-php5

    2.) $ apache2ctl restart

    3.) and clearing iceweasel's cache via
    edit->preferences->privacy->(private data)clear now

Aptitude also made some other changes which
seem to me to be unlikely to have helped, but I
mention them for the sake of completeness...

    $ aptitude install libapache2-mod-php5

Perhaps mediawiki should depend on libapache2-mod-php5.
