MediaWiki is a powerful wiki engine that was originally developed to serve the needs of Wikipedia – the free encyclopedia. Today, MediaWiki is used publicly by many of the largest and most popular wikis online, while privately it is being increasingly deployed inside company Intranets as a knowledge and content management system.
MediaWiki is a powerful, scalable software and a feature-rich wiki implementation that uses PHP to process and display data stored in a database, such as MySQL. If MediaWiki is the option for you, then all you need to do is follow the simple steps to deploy MediaWiki in AWS using Bunnyshell.
How to deploy MediaWiki in AWS with Bunnyshell:
Step 1: Log into Bunnyshell and open the Dashboard. Take a look at the easy-to-use interface. You will see, on the left part of the screen, the main menu. You should be able to see there environments (company projects like production, management), resources, and one-click apps (apps like WordPress, DokuWiki, Magento 2 that are optimized and ready to deploy).
Step 2: Look for RESOURCES and click on One-Click Apps.
Step 3: Once you got to the One-Click Apps, all you have to do is select the one you need. If you can’t find it, feel free to use the search bar. Click on MediaWiki, and you will be redirected to its page.
Step 4: Check out the key features of the app and read the info. Once you are done, launch the app in the cloud.
Step 5: Now you will have to fill in the required info. Give the app a name, choose a location, a virtual network, and a server size.
Step 6: Next, you need to look at the bottom of the page. You will find the package secrets where you can add a root password for MySQL. If you don’t want to, a random password will be generated. You can also see the package requirements for MediaWiki: MySQL and Apache.
Step 7: You can modify and add the necessary info for Apache and MySQL. If you don’t add it, the apps will be configured with the info that was preset.
Step 8: Once you are done, all you have to do is to click on DEPLOY. You will be redirected to a page where you can see that MediaWiki is deploying. You can click on View logs to see how the app is deployed.
