#13586 closed Bug/Something is broken (fixed)

Is MediaWiki still available?

Description

I followed the instructions for installing MediaWiki at https://support.mayfirst.org/wiki/faq/get-dedicated-wiki

but the only option I see is for Drupal. Is there a permission I need to be granted or has the MediaWiki web app offering been discontinued? I'll update the support wiki if that's the case.

Yeah, unfortunately we no longer offer the automated install of Mediawiki ever since there were some issues with the package being left out of Debian. I think it is back in Debian now but we just never get many requests for this and haven't had time to look into what would be necessary to enable to automated installs again.. I think your best bet is a manual install for now. In fact these days Mediawiki recommends installing with git.

You might find some details in this old ticket either helpful or more confusing #12205

If you run into any issues with the install let me know and I can help. I've gone ahead and updated the wiki page but if you'd like to update with any notes about your manual install process that would be fantastic.

Great, thanks for the info and if we end up installing it we'll be sure to update the wiki accordingly,
