    I have a website and was wondering what is the easy way to integrate media wiki in my site. It has to be integrated so that once user logs in the site they do not have to log in to the media wiki too. Can you do this for a fee as well? Thanks

      HI, Steve, i found that ur wiki website using the WikiPedia or MediaWiki? So it proved that u didn’t succeed getting the WikiHow version mediawiki working properly? In my opinion, maybe the WikiHow version didn’t hope the user to run it successfully? Maybe because of the copyright or because of their improvement unique.

      Im working on that too, I hope to finally get it run and would post a final version.

      Thanks. Hope to keep in touch. My mail is tinyvane@gmail.com

      Welcome everyone who is working on wikihow version mediawiki could work together to solve that disgusting problem

    Hi all,
    I have been also trying to get the wikiHow running but I failed. There was many errors reported during the installation which were related to mySql handeling like creating tables and dropping them…. I fixed them and I succeeded to install. However, wikiHow was not able to run at all and there were many errors reported.
    I wonder if someone succeeded to do run wikiHow at all??????
