How do you activate Smart caching? and how do you

where you want the HTML-page cache?
MediaWiki includes a limited to-disk page caching option; only
non-logged-in hits are stored, and only for pages that aren't redirects,
special pages, etc.
To enable it, add lines like these to LocalSettings.php:
$wgUseFileCache = true;
$wgFileCacheDirectory = "/some/directory/cache";
The directory must exist and must be writable by the user that PHP runs
as (the web server user or sometimes your user account). It should be
safe to put it under the image upload directory, or you can put it
somewhere else. It doesn't have to be directly accessible via the web,
but if it is it doesn't hurt.
For really fancy caching you can use a squid reverse proxy in front of
your web server and enable the squid modes, but this is rather trickier
and requires additional servers running.
