MediaWiki's infinite redirection on Dreamhost

Just a small note for people trying to use MediaWiki on Dreamhost. I first made a local installation which had this as $wgArticlePath:

$wgArticlePath      = "$wgScript/$1";

For reason, that I haven’t yet found (and probably won’t find thanks to other more important stuff on my list ;-) ) this doesn’t work. It actually ends up in generating infinite URL redirections.

After switching to the more ugly but at least working …

$wgArticlePath      = "$wgScript?title=$1";

The infinite redirections finally seem to have stopped :)
