README.md

d-mediawiki

This is the MediaWiki docker container used to run MediaWiki on charlesreid1.com/wiki.

This container also runs an Apache web server and a PHP engine.

You should not run this container by itself (see pod-charlesreid1).

Summary

This directory contains a Dockerfile that modifies the official MediaWiki docker container. Before launching the container, it specifies /var/www/html as a mounted volume, and it copies LocalSettings.php, the MediaWiki config file, from this repo into the container.

See d-mysql repo.

Also see pod-charlesreid1 for a working pod using this container.

Docker Compose

To use this container as part of a pod, as with the charlesreid1.com wiki, see pod-charlesreid1-wiki.

Troubleshooting

If you are seeing 404s on every page you try, it may be because your MediaWiki config file is set to redirect you to /wiki/Main_Page but your web server is not set up to handle it.

See this lin and the guide for apache and nginx.

Updating Settings

The LocalSettings.php file must be copied into the container, because we will end up bind-mounting the entire MediaWiki directory when the container is run and we can’t bind-mount a file inside a bind-mounted directory.

Thus, to update LocalSettings.php, skins, or extensions, you will need to re-make the Docker container. Use the make rules to remake the Docker container:

make clean
make build
make run

Submodule

The submodule charlesreid1-config/ contains configuration files for both MediaWiki and Apache.

See the wiki/charlesreid1-config repo for details.

To clone the submodule when you clone the repo, include the --recursive flag:

git clone --recursive https://git.charlesreid1.com/docker/d-mediawiki.git

To check out the submodule after a shallow clone:

git submodule init
# or 
git submodule update --init 

To fetch changes to the submodule from the submodule’s remote:

git submodule update --remote
