Having decided to move parts of UniCenter over to this Wiki , I thought it would be a good idea to learn what a Wiki does.
To achieve this I downloaded and installed MediaWiki on The Uniform Server and hacked it around. This is my first attempt at a Wiki page.
The following instructions show you how to install MediaWiki on a clean version of 3.5-Apollo. It’s a personal server and will not be used online , hence no need to change any of The Uniform Server’s settings, its ; it's locked down and safe to use even when your PC is connected to the Internet.
== Preparation ==

Download MediaWiki , extract and copy it to folder www ; details as follows:
#'''A)''' Create a new folder named mediawiki (can be any name you like)
# Download the latest version (1.12.0) of MediaWiki and save it to the above folder
## Download site: [ WikiMedia]
## File name: mediawiki-1.12.0.tar.gz
# Unzip the file. Windows cannot do this ; use something like 7-Zip Portable
## Download site: []
## File name: 7-Zip Portable - Multilingual file archiver and compressor
# Install a new version of Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo
# '''D)''' Copy folder mediawiki-1.12.0 '''C)''' to folder '''www''' (UniServer’s root folder)
# '''E)''' Rename mediawiki-1.12.0 to '''wiki''' note this . This makes it easier to type into a browsers browser's address bar.
That completes the preparations.
# Start Uniform Server
# Type the following into your browser address bar: '''<nowiki>http://localhost/wiki/</nowiki>''' which redirects to the installation page.# Click the link : Please '''set up the wiki''' first.# This opens the configuration page scroll . Scroll down to '''Site config''' and fill in the form.

Click '''Click Install MediaWiki'''
After creating the database , a second page will display, scroll . Scroll down the page and you will see the conformation confirmation message : "Installation successful! Move the config/LocalSettings.php <br>file to the parent directory, then follow this link to your wiki”wiki"
