Call to inherited Methods of SpecialPage produces fatal error
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: jailing

I installed the LuceneSearch-extension (and all required apps) following the instructions on the extensions page at, but I'm getting this error when I hit the search-button:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method LuceneSearch::getRedirect()
in /var/www/mediawiki-1.10.1/includes/SpecialPage.php on line 396

This Method is inherited from SpecialPage, but seemingly not found at runtime.

The Problem was incompatibility between the MWSearch-Extension and LuceneSearch.
I forgot that MWSearch was still active when I installed LuceneSearch. After
deactivating MWSearch the problem was gone.
