I hope you are not referring to my message "Mediawiki as a CMS." (I mean, what
I did there was a hack, and though it worked for my (en|es).wikipedia mirror,
I wouldn't exactly recommend it).
Still, if you are referring to my hack, here it is:
I installed a mediawiki in, for instance,
and pointed the en.wikipedia and the es.wikipedia virtualhosts to that folder.
On my localsettings.php,
$wgDBserver = "10.6.121.29";
$wgDBname = "wiki";
$wgDBuser = "wikipedia";
$wgDBpassword = "wikipedia";
$wgDBprefix = $db_lang;
$wgDBtype = "mysql";
$wgDBport = "5432";
$wgLanguageCode = $db_lang;
And that seems to work. (the ifs and the $db_lang variable were added by me).
There are some problems with the maintenance scripts in this setup (they
obviously don't define the _SERVER variable so they don't load the
configuration properly so I have to work around that)
But given my 0 expertise with mediawiki, I'm sure there is a better way to do
