Easiest way to install MediaWiki


I’m looking to setup a wiki and first came to DigitalOcean, having previously preffered the service to Azure (and having one of their t-shirts that I like using in the gym!).

As a novice it was a dissapointing to see the MediaWiki one-click install has recently been depreciated. What is the easiest way to now install MediaWiki? Is it using the LAMP one click install and then installing MediaWiki manually?

Azure has a Bitnami one click install, so if you think it’s best if i do that feel free to say. I don’t want to be pestering the forums/support with too many requests in the future!

Thanks, B

I was looking for this as well and found the easiest way is to use the LAMP one-click on DigitalOcean then follow these instructions to set it up:

Super simple and easy :)
