In other words, it sounds like you downloaded the wrong version of Scibunto for the version of Mediawiki you're operating. Download the version that matches your installation.

Since you are running 1.25.1 this is not present in your system, therefor lua issues a runtime error. Again: that is to be expected. You installed and configured Scribunto correctly, now you have to get your modules working. This, however, can be tedious. I speak from experience... :/

Lua is executable from the command line so I am certain there are no issues there. In the snip from local settings below, the 'lua' is a symbolic link to lua5.2 as set up by my distro manager.
