MediaWiki[edit]

For experienced users, here is the quick version of the installation instructions. Most users will want to go through all the passages.

  1. Check that your system meets the minimum requirements shown nearby; Installation requirements has more details.
  2. Download MediaWiki (direct link to download the stable release version) and extract the archive to a web-accessible folder on your server.
  3. Point your browser to the directory where MediaWiki was extracted and follow the link to the setup screen. It should be in the form http://domain/directory/mw-config/index.php. Replace directory with the path to your extracted MediaWiki folder. If installing on a local machine, replace domain with localhost. If you install locally and later want to access your wiki from domain, then you will need to change LocalSettings.php from localhost to domain. If installed on a remote server, replace domain with your server's domain name (eg: www.myserver.com).
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

These instructions are deliberately brief. There is a lot that could go wrong, so if in doubt, you are advised to read the full instructions!
