address validation and editing rights

Florian Effenberger-3
Hi,

we just deployed a MediaWiki at The Document Foundation, running with
FastCGI. Everything seems to work like a charm, except one issue: I
have set

$wgEmailConfirmToEdit = true;

People complain that after they confirmed their account, they need to
log out, restart the browser and then wait five minutes until that
validation is accepted, otherwise - even after successful validation -
they see an error message stating they cannot edit without being
validated.

Is there some timeout or maintenance script running only all five
minutes that could cause this?

Thanks,
Florian

Sounds like a caching related problem. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Cache for further information.

You might also have a look at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Job_queue and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgJobRunRate which regard to periodically run job in MediaWiki.

thanks for the hint. It seems as if APC in conjunction with
PHP-mod_fastcgid was the culprit. Switched to eAccelerator today,
let's see how that goes.
