Creating a Wikipedia clone (part 1)

By admin | September 25, 2008

If you ever wanted to set up your own topic-specific or subject-specific Wikipedia®, then you’re in luck! We’re here to give you simple and easy to follow instruction on creating your own mini-Wikipedia®.

Before you start:

  1. Download MediaWiki and install it to /w.
  2. Go to your wiki in your web browser (go to yoursite.example/w/)
  3. Configure your new Wiki. You need to have your MySQL database name&pass ready – if you don’t have them, ask your system administrator. Select GFDL license/no license.
  4. When you are done, move /w/config/LocalSettings.php to /w/LocalSettings.php and delete /w/config.
  5. Go to your new wiki!
  6. Download the ParserFunctions and extract it to /w/extensions/. Add require_once( "$IP/extensions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php" );
    to the end of /w/LocalSettings.php.
  7. You’re done setting up basic features! Read the next part to find out more.

Don’t forget to read the next part to creating a Wikipedia clone!
