I've been trying to install the OpenID extension, but it just doesn't work.

  1. The instructions as given are wrong:
    • You can't require_once "$IP/extensions/OpenID/OpenID.php" because there is no OpenID.php in the root folder; it's under Auth.
    • If you change it to require_once("$IP/extensions/OpenID/Auth/OpenID.php"), or copy OpenID.php to the root folder, you get all kinds of require_once failures.
  2. Even patching all of the requires so that they find the necessary code files and there are no more errors, the extension still doesn't show up in the Special:Version listing.

This isn't terrible, though, because I'm thinking something more like Shibboleth (extension, extended extension) is more what is needed anyway.
