I'm following the instructions at 
to install a wiki on my computer and seem to have made it through 
everything except the very end.

When I try to access http://localhost/mediawiki/, I get the following error:

Warning: main(./includes/WebStart.php): failed to open stream: No such 
file or directory in C:\OTW\MediaWiki\index.php on line 4

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './includes/WebStart.php' 
(include_path='.;C:\Program Files\TSW\Apache2\php\pear\pear\') in 
C:\OTW\MediaWiki\index.php on line 4

I've got TSW Control Center working under http://localhost:3000/, and 
http://localhost/ shows a folder called MediaWiki. When I try to click 
on the folder I get the same error as above, but the files appear to be 

I'm operating on Windows XP. I installed TSW (The Saint WAMP). On my C 
drive, I set the directory OTW, under which I have the subdirectory 
MediaWiki, with all 884 files, which seem to have the appropriate files. 
All the Apache services appear to be working.

It seems like something simple, but I can't solve it. Can anyone help me 
with this?
