  • Move /etc/apache2/conf.d/mediawiki1.10.conf to /etc/apache2/conf.default/mediawiki1.10.conf
  • Create /etc/apache/conf.d/mediawiki1.10.conf and add:
Alias /wiki /var/lib/mediawiki1.10

<Directory /var/lib/mediawiki1.10/>
    # Allow short URLs
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wiki

    RewriteRule ^[^:]*\.(php|src|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|bmp|css|js|inc|phtml|pl|ico|html|shtml)$ - [L,NC]
    RewriteRule ^index.php?title - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)\&(.*)$ $1\%26$2
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
</Directory>
  • Create /etc/apache2/sites-available/mediawiki and add:
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName wiki.bretts.org
    DocumentRoot /var/lib/mediawiki1.10

    # Allow short URLs

    RewriteRule ^(.*)\&(.*)$ $1\%26$2
    RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
</VirtualHost>
  • Edit /etc/mediawiki1.10/mediawiki.conf and add:
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], 'wiki') === false) {
    $wgScriptPath       = "/wiki";
    $wgArticlePath      = "/wiki/$1";
} else {
    $wgScriptPath       = "";
    $wgArticlePath      = "/$1";

## Disable caching, so that we can use alternate URLs for different virtual hosts
$wgEnableParserCache = false;
  • Run sudo a2ensite mediawiki
