MPG UniCenter

Installing MediaWiki on Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo

</div>

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 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 Uniform Server’s settings, its locked down and safe to use even when your PC is connected to the Internet.

Preparation

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td valign="top"> Download MediaWiki extract and copy it to folder www details as follows:

  1. A) Create a new folder named mediawiki (can be any name you like)
  2. Download the latest version (1.12.0) of MediaWiki and save it to the above folder
    1. Download site: WikiMedia
    2. File name: mediawiki-1.12.0.tar.gz
  3. Unzip the file. Windows cannot do this use something like 7-Zip Portable
    1. Download site: PortableApps.com
    2. File name: 7-Zip Portable - Multilingual file archiver and compressor
  4. Extract mediawiki-1.12.0.tar.gz to current path, creates a new folder<br> mediawiki-1.12.0.tar open this folder B).
  5. Extract mediawiki-1.12.0.tar to current path, creates a new folder<br> mediawiki-1.12.0 inside this is a second folder mediawiki-1.12.0 containing all the wiki files C).
  6. Install a new version of Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo
  7. D) Copy folder mediawiki-1.12.0 C) to folder www (UniServer’s root folder)
  8. E) Rename mediawiki-1.12.0 to wiki note this makes it easier to type into a browsers address bar.

That completes the preparations. </td> <td>Uc media wiki 1.gif</td> </tr> </table>
