Internal server error when editing anonymously via the API
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: EN.WP.ST47

When trying to edit via the API while logged out, I receive an internal server error. Attached are the queries and responses. Query 1 fetches the edit token, and completes successfully, query 2 tries to edit and fails, query 3 loads the page content and finds that it has not changed. Presumably, PHP crashes at some point while executing query 2.

Version: 1.14.x
Severity: critical

I'll need some clues from the enwiki logs as to what caused the HTTP 500 before I can even start investigating this. Brion?

Turned out to be a bug in ConfirmEdit. Should be fixed in r40493, please REOPEN
if you still get errors after r40493 has been synced.
