Wikimedia setup question




This is the first time I am setting up a wiki. I setup a subdomain ( and installed the wiki software using the one click setup under the\iurl directory.

Everything worked beautifully, according to the mediawiki entry on the dreamhost wiki, it mentions the following:

[quote] If your wiki is installed under a “wiki.” subdomain

  1. Install MediaWiki in a subdirectory, e.g., and not in the root directory of using the Dreamhost control panel
  2. Configure your wiki as normal with ugly URLs
  3. Modify the following options in LocalSettings.php

$wgScriptPath = “/iurl”;
$wgArticlePath = “/$1”;

  1. In the ROOT directory of place the following .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on

uncomment this rule if you want Apache to redirect from to

RewriteRule ^/$ /Main_Page [R]

do the rewrite

RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /iurl/index.php?title=$1 [PT,L,QSA]
So I edited the localsettings.php file from the config directory, then copied it to the root directory, but I am not sure WHICH parent directory to copy it to. Is it the directory or the directory? Either way, I get the following message when I visit the directory:

Any suggestions??
