To set up mediawiki with a SuSE Linux distribution, issue the commands

yast -i apache2-mod_php5
yast -i mysql
yast -i php5-mysql
/etc/init.d/apache2 start
/etc/init.d/mysql start
  • Make sure you can see websites from /srv/www/htdocs. To do this:
cp /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost.template /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost.conf
  • change DocumentRoot in /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost.conf so it points to /srv/www/htdocs
  • create a file index.htm in /srv/www/htdocs
  • restart apache
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Then extract the mediawiki installation package, in this case to apache's default directory:

cd /srv/www/htdocs
tar xvzf /tmp/mediawiki-1.21.2.tar.gz
mv mediawiki-1.21.2 mediawiki
chown -R wwwrun:www mediawiki

Then, point your browser to http://localhost/mediawiki. You see a web site like this:
