Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.19.2-2
Severity: normal

Hello maintainer

 used mediawiki at a local maschine. Since some weeks I can't edit more
information in to it.

I did some test to verify that it must be a problem with the package "mediawiki
or the package it depends on.

I did some similar tests also with phpmyadmin because both programms based on
php and use mysql

The detailed description followed:

- Debian-Basis-System Wheezy in Virtualbox installed
- XFCE, Icewweasel, Mysql-Server 5.5 installed
- PHPMyAdmin installed
- Created a Testtable and added some data sets - worked
- Mediawiki installed
- /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
- Mediawiki configured
- etc/init.d/apache2 reload
- Started Mediawiki, added text to one side.
- click onto the Save-Button - Error Message: The connection was reset,
- The following Test with phpmyadmin schows the same error message.

If you need more information please contact me. I can do further tests in the
virtual machine.

Kind regards
