But the .. here means one level above the current directory, not the
config directory.

So lets say the wiki top directory is /var/www/mywiki

cd /var/www/mywiki
cd config/LocalSettings.php ..

will move the file to /var/www/LocalSettings.php which is NOT what you want

cd /var/www/mywiki
cd config/LocalSettings.php .

will move the file to the wiki top directory.

or just:

mv /var/www/mywiki/config/LocalSettings.php /var/www/mywiki

if you want to be explicit.
