I’ve decided to try using a Wiki for managing knowledge, lessons learned, best practices.
MediaWiki is the open source version of WikiPedia.
Downloaded the installer; unpacked using 7-Zip.
Created a subdomain — wiki.paulgarth.name
Created a folder within WebExplorer so I can upload the installer to it. Called it “wiki”, which may not be advisable if wishing to use that as a short name — not sure what means
Create a Sql Database and recorded the various settings I need.
Upgraded FileZilla and configured account to access files within www.paulgarth.com
Uploaded the installer files using sftp — this process took a while
Went to this site for the initial config documentation — http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Config_script
Went to www.wiki.paulgarth.com/index.php — I made the subdomain point to the specific installer folder, which is why it looks like index.php is not within it’s own folder.
PHP 5.5.24 is installed.
Warning: Could not find APC, XCache or WinCache.
Object caching is not enabled.
Found ImageMagick: /usr/bin/convert.
Image thumbnailing will be enabled if you enable uploads.
Found the Git version control software: /usr/bin/git.
Using server name “http://www.wiki.paulgarth.com”.
Using server URL “http://www.wiki.paulgarth.com”.
So far so good — followed all the prompts, and now I have my on Wiki
