VisualEditor in 1.36-alpha with zeroconfig Parsoid throws 'Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 404)'
Open, LowPublicBUG REPORT

Description

This is one of the VisualEditor 404 errors that affects developers using the master branch (1.36-alpha).
Parsoid auto configuration that was introduced in 1.35 was a temporary solution for the LTS. Pending a final solution this was removed in patch 622187.

Workaround for the time being:
add to LocalSettings.php

// For 1.36-alpha only
wfLoadExtension( 'Parsoid', 'vendor/wikimedia/parsoid/extension.json' );
