Mediawiki Install for FC7:
Install mediawiki with yum or yumex. From terminal using yum, yum install mediawiki
If you have Apache running and you have web services already running you probably have your document root set to /var/www/html which is the default. You will also need MYSQL running. Apache runs fine out of the box and shows its test screen if you browse to http://127.0.0.1/
MYSQL requires some setup:
#mysql -u root
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 6
Server version: 5.0.37 Source distribution
Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR ''@'localhost'=PASSWORD('newpassword');
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.11 sec)
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR ''@'jackson.umina.lan'=PASSWORD('newpassword'); [substitute your localhost.localdomain DO NOT just type localhost.localdomain]
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
Now you have Apache and MYSQL running.
mediawicki installs into /var/www so if you run
ls /var/www you should see a directory wicki
Do the following:
cd html [remember /var/www/html is the default document root for Apache]
ln -s ../wicki [this makes a symbolic link to /var/www/wicki from the document root so Apache can get to it.
now you can browse to http://127.0.0.1/wiki/config/index.php
The script will evaluate your installation and tell you if it can install.
That should get you through the toughest part. As soon as I learn what a wiki is and how it works, I'll post more!
