I’m looking for guidance on installer overrides and how to add to the web
installer interface. Mainly to add SMW and other extensions to the end of
Greetings. I manage a small semantic mediawiki. I have been told that other
facilities similar to mine would find it useful. To facilitate this, I have
created an Amazon machine image of the full installed wiki with SMW, Visual
Editor, and such. Along with the SMW data structures and queries in place.
Originally, I was going to include instructions on changing the
LocalSettings.php file manually, but ideally, I would like to modify the
installer to include the needed config info for SMW and the other added
extensions. Most of it will be straight appending of text to the end of
LocalSettings.php, but the SecureHTML extension requires a bit of input
that I would like to add to the web installer.
I noted the installer override README, and I know it should work for my
needs, but I have a few questions:
•What installer step is ideal to trigger the override if I want to add text
to the end of the file?
•Can I use an installer override to add a field to the web installer?
•I haven’t found much on Google about this, other than one project on
GitHub, so any advice on a tutorial or notes would be greatly appreciated.
