Installation experiences

Upgraded to MediaWiki-1.6.8 - the current stable release for PHP 4.x.

MediaWiki-1.7.1 requires PHP 5 which is not installed.

I remembered to move the custom wiki.png to the skins/common/images directory.

The UUism Networks Web Site has been secured since the last installation, so all files must be owned by the local user and can't be group/world writable.

I did NOT have to chmod a w images to allow access to a temporary directory due to the increated security.

Finally, I copied the value of $wgSpamRegex from /includes/DefaultSettings.php to the new file.

I had to change back to index.php? format due to the new security scheme.

--Jim 9/15/06 or so.



Upgraded to MediaWiki-1.4.4 - the current stable release.

I remembered to move the custom wiki.png from the old stylesheets/images directory to the new skins/common/images directory.

Also, I remembered to to chmod a w images to allow access to a temporary directory.

Finally, I copied the value of $wgSpamRegex from /includes/DefaultSettings.php to the new file.

Upgraded to MediaWiki-1.3.7 - the current release.

I remembered to move the custom wiki.png from the old /stylesheets/images directory to the new installation directory.

In addition, I have to chmod a w images to allow access to a temporary directory.

--Jim 10/23/04



Upgraded to MediaWiki-1.3.5 - the current release.

This time I remembered to move the custom wiki.png.

--Jim 10/9/04



Upgraded to MediaWiki-1.3.0 - the current release.

I turned off the Global_registers settings. Let's see if anything breaks.

I had to make the images directory writable again. This is due to running in Safe Mode.

--Jim 8/14/04

It worked!


I got MediaWiki-1.3beta5 to install.

I had to increase the PHP memory limit to 20M and make the images directory writable.
