Description Dhiru Kholia 2013-07-25 02:56:59 EDT
Description of problem:

mediawiki configuration fails with "Could not open /var/www/wiki/maintenance/tables.sql" error message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Install mediawiki and try to configure it by accessing "http://localhost/wiki". 

It fails with "Could not open /var/www/wiki/maintenance/tables.sql" error message when it tries to do database stuff towards the end.

Here is a simple fix,

sudo ln -s /usr/share/mediawiki/maintenance /var/www/wiki/maintenance

Pushing this fix shouldn't be a problem since "/var/www/wiki" is already full of such symlinks.
