Manual talk:Installing MediaWiki on XAMPP

Latest comment: 6 years ago by Schreibhan in topic Manual incomplete for MediaWiki 1.27

So useful. Thanks Tisane! (and anyone who worked on the Lazy Man's install, which this seems to be based on). -- 16:42, 9 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You're welcome. Actually, I didn't even realize at the time that one can get an AMP package that comes bundled with Mediawiki. Tisane 22:33, 9 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I didn't know about that either.. oh well, the XAMPP install is working ok :)
BTW Lazy Man's install is now titled Easy simple setup (using XAMPP) --Robkam (talk) 21:22, 28 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Has anyone else encountered difficulties working with XAMPP 1.7.4-2 beta for Linux?[edit]

I am having trouble getting MediaWiki to install; it won't recognize the database username that I created and granted privileges to. I was wondering if anyone else had run into this problem. Tisane 11:33, 27 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Other distributions[edit]

Currently this article is mostly for Windows, it ought to include details relevant for the other three XAMPP distributions too. --Robkam (talk) 19:59, 28 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Manual incomplete for MediaWiki 1.27[edit]

I installed XAMPP on Win 10, set up a database and a user, granted the privileges, modified php.ini, downloaded and unpacked MediaWiki 1.27 in a sub directory.
But when I pointed my browser to it, I got an error: "MediaWiki 1.27 internal error. Installing some external dependencies (e.g. via composer) is required."
I think there are additional steps required: Download and install Composer and configure a skin. Once I followed these, the installation was fine.
