Manual talk:Running MediaWiki on Red Hat Linux
Is there a mediawiki package distributed with Red Hat Enterprise Linux? There is one included with recent versions of Fedora. 19:20, 8 February 2008 220.127.116.11
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Release 5.1
All but one packages are available.
yum install php-mysql
Then unzip the mediawiki-1.12.0 software to /var/www/html.
Installed MediaWiki 1.12.0, but after configuring it, only a blank page is showed. 21:25, 6 August 2008 18.104.22.168
Installation: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6
Got an interesting error when trying to install Mediawiki(Version 1.26.1) on RHEL 6.6. Per the instructions I created my database in Mysql (Version 5.1.73) and I received error during the installation. The error stated that a database had already been created with the same name and the new database could not be created. I went back in and deleted the database and the user that I had created. I then ran the installation script and everything installed correctly. Not sure if that will help anyone else out but if you run into that then that's how I got around it.
Installation: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or 7
I cleaned up some ambiguous instructions, removed some un-needed alternate constructions that were accurate but not relevant.
It appears mediawiki is not currently in EPEL. Should the alternative instructions be removed? yum list mediawiki* only returns the following results at this time. mediawiki123-HTTP302Found.noarch, mediawiki123-RSS.noarch, mediawiki123-intersection.noarch
