Mediawiki on Sourceforge

Hi,

is there a possibility to install Mediawiki on a Sourceforge-Website?, and
if yes, how do I do it? I'd love to use Mediawiki as the wiki for the
Website of my Sourceforge-Project, and yes, I know, it is overkill in some
instances, but it's so great in many others (I love free links, and not
having the strange looking '?' characters in my text, and much more).

So, how do I do it?

Thanks in advance,
Denny

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:
http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=3052&group_id=1

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

Of course I forgot:
$wgDBname = "projectname";

Re: Mediawiki on Sourceforge

Hooray! Thank you a lot, Brion, it worked just as you have said, perfect!

Now it's time to make it look like I want it to look :)
But, as said, wow, and thank you a lot!

Why isn't the HowTo you have written for me somewhere accessible on the net?
Now it is even tested.

In your debt,

Re: Mediawiki on Sourceforge

Sorry for bothering again... just a stupid question: how do I give myself
developer, sysop, admin rights and so on, after I installed mediawiki
succesfully?

Re: Mediawiki on Sourceforge

Thank you again!

Everything is up and running now (though not public yet - it is on
http://darkeyetool.sourceforge.net/wiki/wiki.phtml ).

But everytime I make an update of a page, or start a new page, or delete a
page, or whatever, there comes a error message:

>>
DELETE linkscc FROM linkscc,brokenlinks WHERE lcc_pageid=bl_from AND
bl_to='Hilfe'

aus der Funktion "". MySQL meldete den Fehler "1064: You have an error in
your SQL syntax near 'linkscc FROM linkscc,brokenlinks WHERE
lcc_pageid=bl_from AND bl_to='Hilfe'' at line 1".
<<

The action is performed, but I'd like to patch the error away...

Best regards,
Denny

RE: Mediawiki on Sourceforge

Yes, I'm getting that error too, on an installation I did a couple days ago
(so haven't had time to dig deeper yet).

If I refresh the page with the error (and post the data again) it works the
second time OK.

I'm using Apache 2 on this, and have had no similar problems with Apache
1.3.x - I can look up more specific information if you want.

Only happens when I create a new page, updating is fine. I couldn't spot
what was wrong with that MySQL statement!?

yep, correct. Updating is fine. Deleting and Moving Pages though isn't.
*shrug* No idea what happens there...
