I just set up an Ubuntu 8.04 Server for my wiki. I got everything going and when I do the mediawiki install via the webpage interface it always hangs out the database config. I dont have any databases on this server, will be moving a database from an exsisting wiki to the new one soon tho. Do I need to set up a database first, move mine over, or what? Thanks

well you need a database server. You can move the old files over from the old server but you will still have to install the database server (probably mysql)

Try
sudo aptitude install mysql-server

Thanks for the guides, seemed that all i needed to do was to restart mysql. Thanks a ton, i was starting to pull out my hair over something so simple.
