I did this with the EXISTING notes on MediaWiki.org. I didn't do
anything out of the ordinary. If you are finding this hard, you should
hire an expert to help you.

I have done 5 MediaWiki installations, on the same PC and on different
PCs, using nothing but the instructions. If you are finding this too
hard, I recommend you hire an expert.

This is my last response on this topic.
