It is not every single page. I am still able to look at couple of pages: Guessing there is something being misinterpreted by the markup engine, and it just doesn't output the markup.

If you desperately need something, the google cached version is still good:

Well, for me it looks like some central stuff is not longer working, but there is no systematic, some pages work, others not.

My first guess is, that some template is broken, or some config has changed, or some rights are wrong.

I've mailed slpwnd Thursday evening. Answer:
I asked the hosting company if they changed anything, and they said
they didn't. If it is template related I have no idea as I don't even
know how these work on the wiki. I can try to do some investigation
tomorrow.
I will also have a closer look today.

Printed by the PHP script client side (what I can work out, with my limited PHP knowledge, it is a server side issue (overload/debug mode maybe)

Code: Select all

<!-- bodycontent -->
				<div id="mw-content-text" lang="en" dir="ltr" class="mw-content-ltr">
<!-- 
NewPP limit report
Preprocessor node count: 354/1000000
Post-expand include size: 1571/2097152 bytes
Template argument size: 77/2097152 bytes
Expensive parser function count: 11/500
-->

<!-- Saved in parser cache with key kovarexcom-wiki:pcache:idhash:33232-0!*!*!*!*!*!* and timestamp 20150912043440 -->
</div>				<!-- /bodycontent -->

Oh and there was an server issue earlier in the week. redirected to hosts page instead of Factorio. I didn't take a screenshot or anything, it was only for a few minutes.

You can purge mediawiki pages, however that doesn't seem to help. I compared timestamps in the source code and the cache seems actually purged. I think there may be something wrong with the renderer because of an update or something?

Maybe this? https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:E ... t_is_there
All pages have no content, but when editing a page the wiki text is there [..] This is caused by a change in PCRE 8.34. You need to downgrade PCRE, or update MediaWiki to version 1.22.1 or newer

Hm. Looks very hot. It would explain it. But I think we cannot test, if it is this case.

Well, updating the MediaWiki software is quite important anyway. Or did someone backport security fixes to the 1.19.3 version currently in use?

So maybe this is a good time to upgrade to the current stable release. And maybe check if there's some kind of spam bot / botnet client / … hidden somewhere where MediaWiki has write permissions. :D

I'm still seeing this happen - every page I check has no content. In fact, as Google's cache expires and is refreshed, it's getting worse, since now the Google cached versions are blank, too.

Wow, that was one heck of a turn around - it started working again right after I posted!

Good work! :lol:

Here is a snapshot from March 2015, it should contain most of the content:

EDIT: You're right, it's back, I tested 10 pages and all showed.
