MediaWiki - where should I put it?

Post by wilbrik » 2011/02/14 01:54:58

Hello,

I'm new to web hosting on Linux so I need to ask a remarkably newbish question.

I've already installed CentOS 5.5, Apache, MySQL and PHP, all the most recent versions.

I now want to run MediaWiki.

What is the ideal directory to place my MediaWiki folder in? I've read the instructions but nothing explicitly states where to put it, or where the ideal location would be.

I have not run the install yet, as I want to make sure it's in the right directory.


Thanks!

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=47]FAQ & Readme First[/url] is recommended for new users.

Disclaimer: I have no experience with MediaWiki.

A google on [url=http://www.google.com/search?q=mediawiki+centos+install&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a]mediawiki centos install[/url] seems to have some good advice. The first two hits from my search look reasonable:
