Multiple MediaWikis on Debian

Spent a few hours today trying to make a “wiki farm” on Debian using MediaWiki. I already had six wikis using separate code directories on the one server, so when I needed to update them all it was a real pain. Having to create a seventh standalone wiki today pushed me to doing this. I documented it here. Not sure if my notes will be helpful to others but I hope so… Took a little longer as I wanted to be to lock down each wiki with htpasswd (I know you can lock down parts of MoinMoin, but MediaWiki isn’t so partitionable).

  1. Why port 5432 John? Just to get it off the default?


  2. Ooh that looks good Jones, I really wanted something more automated – I’ll see if that can work.

    Adam – I don’t remember changing it, so it may be Debian deciding things for me…
