Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.14.0-1
Severity: normal

I'm looking forward to using mediawiki, and in the
process of setting up this fine software, I
noticed that the instructions in 


say that mediawiki can be accessed at


but that didn't work for me.

Nor did replacing "www.myserver.org" with
"localhost" or "".

However, uncommenting the line that says

    # Alias /mediawiki /var/lib/mediawiki



solved the problem.

I would like to humbly suggest either

    a.) uncommenting that line in the package's
    file, and having the install script restart
    apache2, or

    b.) explaining in 

        that one should manually uncomment the
        line and do

            $ apache2ctl restart

        as root.
