Visual Editor not loading after migration

Describe the issue / Steps to reproduce:
i did a migration from Media Wiki to the latest 4.4 version today and the visual editor it not working.

I confirmed the steps here: VisualEditor configuration - BlueSpice Wiki

Expected behavior:
the visual editor should load

What was the error message/error log?
There is no error messages on the screen. The loading bar gets about 3/4 of the way across the screen and I get the following errors in the console:

[ZXIGCcGKdNWOeaR41pHcYgAAAAM] 2023-12-07 17:51:05: Fatal exception of type "RuntimeException"
(anonymous) @ load.php?lang=en&modules=ext.bluespice.watchlist.visualEditor&skin=bluespicediscovery&version=1o25a:4


ContentDroplets: Required RL modules failed to load
(anonymous) @ VM17:26

There are a lot of deprecated errors in the php_error_log file but nothing related to this that I can see.

System info:

  • OS: unknown. hosting on

  • Database: MySQL 5.7.39
  • BlueSpice version: BlueSpice free 4.4
  • Browser version: Chrome: Version 119.0.6045.199

So i turned on some debugging and found the error for the VE was as follows:


The bs.watchlist is lowercase but on my server it was BS.WatchList and this was causing an error. after i renamed it to all lower case, cleared caches etc all is well with the world…

FYI: This is a known issue on Windows server environments. There is an open bug report already. Reference is ERM34435.
