Be sure to set $wgSitename (and other configuration variables) *after*
the line that references includes/DefaultSettings.php.

There is no $wgNamespace configuration variable. You want
$wgMetaNamespace. Note that changing this name will cause existing
links to the project namespace (using the old sitename) to break.
