Manual talk:Installing MediaWiki on XAMPP

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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)

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)
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)

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)

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)

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.
