Installation of MediaWiki

Here we have the basic installation of MediaWiki outlined for you. This will create your wiki in subdirectory /mediawiki. Should you wish to have another name, e.g. http://www.yourserver.com/wiki, then you must make two changes.

After installation of MediaWiki, your Wiki is available on every Virtual Host you run - unless you follow the instructions to place MediaWiki inside a Virtual Host.

Some people want to run multiple Wiki instances on one single server - especially so if that server runs multiple websites (the forementioned Virtual Hosts). The answer to that is to create a Wikifarm.

An extra feature we added was support for iFrames by means of a little PHP script that we googled; the extension is called websiteFrame.php.

Furthermore, we changed the Creative Commons picture in the footer from a remote one to a local one.

For user management, we added the extensions Password Reset and Group Permissions Manager.

A feature we needed to gain experience for another project was the Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) extension; it also has a pretty simple installation.
