For the new wiki administrators, it is almost impossible to guess, which characters in the setup files are constants, and which should be substituted to some name specific for the custom installation. Therefore, in the main page, I use the character to denote the directory, where the mediawiki is installed.
I did not yet do the same with the text I have copypasted from the corresponding README, because I am not sure if I understand well this README. In particular, the file README contains the string PATH. Should these four characters appear in the full name of the texvc file, or they should be replaced to something? Is this thing somehow related to the directory I denoted as in the main article?
Such misunderstanding may be one of reasons why I failed to install correctly the mediawiki at my server. It would be good to explain this in the main text. Tori 10:22, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
P.S. About all the manuals: it may be good idea, to name all variables with characters that DO NOT EXIST at the keyboard and cannot be copypasted, to force the customer to substitute them to the name, specific for the local server. For example, one may use the mathematical symbols, the letters from Japanese or Russian or Greek alphabets, etc. This would prevent a beginner to type them "as is" into the setup files.
If some name is denoted with character ふ , then the manual should say, that the character ふ should be replaced to the string, specific for the custom server, and suggest some examples of possible values of ふ . (however, namely character ふ should not be used in the Japanese version of the manual; some Greek or Russian character should be used instead). Tori 10:22, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
