After some trial and error I successfully installed MediaWiki
on my home XP machine. First I tried installing Apache + MySQL + PHP separately without success, then I discovered XAMPP
and that worked like a charm.
My question is this: at work we are running StoreGrid
, which already has installed Apache & PHP (and also MySQL I believe) on my computer. Should I try to get MediaWiki to work with these current installations, or should I install additional instances (perhaps using XAMPP)? My machine at work is also XP.
I tried installing MediaWiki but I can't find the Apache htdocs folder that exists after installing XAMPP, or determine what the root webserver folder is. When I access the StoreGrid web interface I navigate to my machine's name on port 6060 but I can't figure out which folder that references.
Are there any problems with installing multiple instances of Apache/MySQL/PHP? Are there benefits to getting MediaWiki to work with StoreGrid's instances (assuming I can do so)?
