This mediawiki package supports multiple instances, sometimes also called Wiki Farms or Wiki Families, but you can use it for a single instance just as well. This works by running mw-createinstance <path>, where <path> is the new desired location of your wiki(s) like mw-createinstance /srv/ Note that the parent directories must exist. You also need to create an Apache config entry (if you use Apache for serving mediawiki) like DocumentRoot /srv/ Alias /skins /usr/share/mediawiki/skins <Directory "/usr/share/mediawiki/skins"> AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory> <Directory "/srv/"> SetEnv MW_INSTALL_PATH "/srv/" AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory> (this example is for short URLs, e.g. ones w/o a "/wiki/" in the URL)
