Prerequisites

MediaWiki requires the following PHP version (see compatibility list):

  • PHP 5.3: MediaWiki 1.13 - 1.26
  • PHP 5.4: MediaWiki 1.17 - 1.26
  • PHP 5.5: MediaWiki 1.18 -
  • PHP 5.6: MediaWiki 1.23 -
  • PHP 7.0: MediaWiki 1.27 -

Installation

MediaWiki can be downloaded as follows:

$ git clone https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki.git
$ cd mediawiki
$ git checkout -b REL1_25 origin/REL1_25

Since version 1.24 the skin has to be cloned separately:

$ cd skins
$ rm .gitignore
$ git clone https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-skins-MonoBook --branch REL1_25 --single-branch MonoBook
$ cd MonoBook
$ rm -rf .git

Since version 1.27 the skin has to be updated from submodule:

$ git submodule update --init -- skins/MonoBook

To merge the submodule:

$ mv skins/MonoBook skins/MonoBook.tmp
$ git submodule deinit -f -- skins/MonoBook
$ rm -rf .git/modules/skins/MonoBook
$ rm -rf skins/MonoBook
$ rm -rf skins/.gitignore
$ mv skins/MonoBook.tmp skins/MonoBook

Then modify LocalSettings.php to load the skin:

wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' );
