Sourceforge seems to have PHP 4.1.2 installed, which is a little old
but I think should work.
The default installation script probably will not work; it assumes root
access etc. You can try a manual install...
If you haven't already, get a database set up for your project. See:
Now, grab MediaWiki-1.1.0.tar.gz and untar it in your user space
somewhere (logged into shell.sourceforge.net).
Go into the maintenance subdirectory, and set up the table skeleton:
$ cat tables.sql indexes.sql initialdata.sql interwiki.sql | \
mysql -u projectname -p -h mysql.sourceforge.net projectname
It'll ask for the password that you set up the database with, and if
all is well will populate the tables.
*WARNING* MediaWiki expects to have a database all to itself. If you
are using your project's database for other purposes, please check that
