Topic on Manual talk:Installing MediaWiki

I'm trying to install a wiki on my server. I've been following the instructions on the installation and configuration pages, however, when I navigate to the wiki mainpage (the server IP) I receive the following error:

MediaWiki 1.21.2 LocalSettings.php not found. Please set up the wiki first.

When I clicked the link for setup (run the ms-config/index.php script) the page is completely blank.

I tried running the script manually through SSH and found I was experiencing this error "Fatal error: Class 'DOMDocument' not found in xxxxxxxx/Preprocessor_DOM.php on line nnn". I found the solution to be that my server did not have a XML module that was needed, so I installed that and now the script appears to work through SSH, however, I still see the page that tells me to setup the wiki and I still see a blank page when I click the link. Since there is no error here or on the SSH side, I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Turns out all I needed to do was restart apache after downloading the module!

Same problem, the module was php-xml
