Work through the following instructions to set-up a back-up media wiki installation server in your LAN.
As a requirement, the media wiki software (the software that runs wikieducator) needs to have a working PHP, MySQL and Apache platform. Therefore you will need to install and configure PHP,MySQL and Apache. The easiest way to do this is to download XAMPP, a platform that comes with a preconfigured PHP,MySQL and Apache webserver. You can download XAMMP from:
- For Linux users - http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html
- For Windows users - http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html
- For Other platforms - http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
Instructions for installing and configuring XAMMP are in their respective download sites.
Once you have installed and configured XAMMP correctly, download the mediawiki software from http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download. Uncompress the mediawiki software and put it within the relevant path to the htdocs folder within XAMMP.
Follow the mediawiki installation requirements to install media wiki in your local machine.
