Thanks again...

Well, I'll upgrade first.
How do I upgrade - just run over all of the files? (overwrite) or should I
do something special? (- no documentation at media-wiki's site...)

When I say a clean server, I actually mean that no wiki was installed on my
space on the server... the server is not mine - it's on some third-party
hosting service (as I said before - called LunarPages)

I have no idea how exactly the PHP is configured, but as far as I know the
installation worked just fine (I was using an FTP software to upload the

That's it for now, if you have any recommendations about upgrading, I'll be
happy, thanks.

When you say it's "a clean server", what does this mean?

Did you install Linux yourself on it, and know exactly how PHP is
configured? Do you run it yourself, or is it an account on some third-party
hosting service?

Are you familiar with its configuration? What's PHP's include_path set to?
Is the override in MediaWiki's config failing? Might it be loading some
other file for this? Have you checked to confirm that the files were all
uploaded correctly?
