I would like to set up a backup version of a Wiki that allows to experiment with new features. Therefore, I would like to share basically all mediawiki directories, esp. images, with the original wiki, but use a different database, and a different extension folder. 

I have been looking at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Wiki_family but the suggestions there sound terribly complicated. Isn't there an easy solution, with the backup wiki consisting just of a new LocalSettings.php, a new extensions folder and a new database?

Thx in advance
