Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.12.0-2
Severity: normal


I want to install Mediawiki on a web server, the database is on another server.

On the Web server are installed apache2, debconf, mime-support, php5, php5-mysql
and php5-pgsql.

And the output of apt-get :

$ sudo apt-get install mediawiki

Surprisingly, mysql-server is not part of dependencies.
