I've been using the baselink plugin to refer to links in the server root. The hogfather upgrade failed with that plugin enabled (lost access to the website). After I got hogfather working (new install, copy data, etc), I tried installing it again - spectacular fail - as soon as I hit the install button in the extension manager I got a http 500 Error that the website was not working. Deleting the baselink folder in the plugin directory restored normal operation.
So - two parts here:
- fyi for anyone else using or considering using this.
- are there any other extensions or work arounds for accessing links on a server above the dokuwiki folder? I can, of course, use the full url, but that breaks portability and I have to search out all such links when mirroring between servers.
