article states that:
- If you are using a virtual host server, make a symbolic link (named in this example mywiki) from your /usr/share/mediawiki installation folder to your /var/www folder:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/mediawiki /var/www/mywiki
however, MediaWiki emphatically states this is not secure:
- http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Short_URL#Recommended_how-to_guide_.28setup_used_on_Wikipedia.29 (emphasis in original)
- Do not create this virtual directory and it should not exist in the web root folder!. This guide assumes that you have installed MediaWiki in /w/ folder relative to your web root as Wikipedia does, and not in /wiki/ folder.
Why is this suggested here and should it be removed from the article? Nikki 11:34, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
