Hi, I still cannot understand the procedure given in
However, the LocalSettings comments at the top says:
# If you customize your file layout, set $IP to the directory that contains
# the other MediaWiki files. It will be used as a base to locate files.
So I set $IP = "../commonmediawiki";
where commonmediawiki is the folder that contains all the mediawiki files.
However, it is not working. My LocalSettings.php is contained within a
folder that is at the same level as the commonmediawiki folder. Using "../"
moves the directory pointer one level up before pointing to the
commonmediawiki folder. Did I set the $IP correctly?
