I have been able to get my wiki up and configured quite easily,
although modifying the navigation box took some figuring out. However,
the one last thing I want to do is to figure out how to modify the URLs
using Apache rewrite rules. I don't have access to httpd.conf on my
hosted site, just .htaccess files. But when I tried the hint in
<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Rewrite_rules> nothing happened.
Moreover, I want to also change the base URL, as I use URL forwarding
on my site. Any help would be appreciated! Please see below for more
My Wiki URL:
How I would like it to look like:
As you see, my actual domain is "oxus.net" not "oxusnet.net" which is

On most software I've installed myself, I've been able to set up a
"base URL" using the config file, but I don't see that here in
MediaWiki. As far as removing the "index.php/" is concerned, the
instructions on the "rewrite_rules" page don't seem to work for me. My
host's tech support (hostmatters.com
) told me that the rules specify
the exact same URL structure I already have, so there is no difference!
Thanks for your help!!!
