Package: mediawiki1.10
Version: 1.10.1-2
Severity: normal

I have got problems to set my mediawiki installation up properly. I 
tried to follow the instructions from the README.Debian.gz of this 
package. Apache2 seems to work and is delivering the default webpage 
("It works") when http://localhost is called. However, calling adresses like
"localhost/mediawiki/" "localhost/mediawiki/config/index.php" and so on, 
return a error 404. 

I tried dpkg-reconfigure mediawiki1.10 and as a result the symlink  
mediawiki1.10.conf -> /etc/mediawiki1.10/apache.conf was created in 
/etc/apache2/conf.d/ was created, but the error 404 remains. 

The article about running mediawiki on debian from 
mediawiki.org which is also referenced in the README (BTW, the 
web-adress is outdated. The page moved to 
only covers Versions 1.5 and 1.7. If there are additional steps 
necessary to configure mediawiki (apart from calling 
localhost/mediawiki/config/) please update the README to include 
installation procedures for new installations.
