The hint sounds good and I tried


$callingurl = strtolower($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);        // identify the asking url

if ( strpos( $callingurl, 'wikiFG31') ) {
         require_once( 'LocalSettings_wikiFG31.php' );
if ( strpos( $callingurl, 'wikiWR') ) {
         require_once( 'LocalSettings_WR.php' );

as new LocalSettings.php for my two instances (named FG31 and WR).
I also added

Alias /wikiFG31 /var/lib/mediawiki1.9
Alias /wikiWR   /var/lib/mediawiki1.9

to my apache2 config (I'm using the Debian packaged version of
MediaWiki 1.9.3).

If I call either

    http://localhost/wikiWR/    or

I get

    Error, Setup.php must be included from the file scope, after DefaultSettings.php

as response but I have no idea what I might have missed.
Any idea?

Kind regards
