I'm having a bit of trouble and hoping someone here knows what's going on.

I created a subdomain earlier which is wiki.psnfriends.net

Then I downloaded mediawiki and uploaded it to public_html/wiki (so psnfriends.net/wiki). When I go to http://wiki.psnfriends.net/ I get this error ...

Not Found

The requested URL /usr/home/psnfrien/public_html/index.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

So what have I done wrong?

Looks like this in the subdomain screen -



So it looks like the document root is the folder I've installed it too but there is no redirection there. Should there be?

The strange thing is, when I go to www.psnfriends.net/wiki I don't see the wiki either

I've just uploaded it so far. I was hoping I'd be able to go to wiki.psnfriends.net and be presented with an install page but evidently not.

Check the permissions on the /usr/home/psnfrien/public_html/wiki directory, 666 permissions should work i think, not sure though.; google for the needed permissions.

right, have you looked here and read through what you're meant to do to get mediawiki installed?

Actually, I haven't

I'll do that now and come back if I still have problems!

Edit: It seems I've done everything ok so far. It said the permissions needed to be 755 or 777 on linux so I changed them from 755 to 777. It then says to go to the config directory in the browser which would be www.psnfriends.net/wiki/config but I just leaves me at the forum index

Got it working. I decided to email my host and he said there was something wrong with the .htaccess file and that it was in the wrong place so he sorted that and I could access the installation page. All seems to be working fine now :yy: Cheers.
