I made a fresh installation of MediaWiki 1.35 and didn't activated anything special while installation. After the wiki was up and running I added the following line to LocalSettings.php: wfLoadExtension( 'VisualEditor' );
Nothing else was modified.
When trying to edit a page with VisualEditor I receive the following error consistently: "Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 500)"
My understanding is, that there shouldn't be any additional config steps to make it work?!
- Local raspian server that is no reachable from the internet (Linux xxxxxx 5.4.79-v7l+ #1373 SMP Mon Nov 23 13:27:40 GMT 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux)
- apache2.4.38 with php7.3.19
- Wiki is configured to be editable by everyone
- no RewriteRules in vhost config or .htaccess
A found a lot of other reports via google about the same or similar problems but unfortunately I wasn't able to find a solution.
If I missed any important info please let me know.
Any help would be highly appreciated!
