RHEL mw[edit]

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

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Release 5.1[edit]

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

Installation: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6[edit]

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[edit]

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
