mediawiki installation probs on ubuntu


Hello all

I am installing mediawiki (1.11.2) using postgresql (8.3. on ubuntu using the manual:installation guidelines on the mediawiki website. I have got apache (2.2. up and running and have installed php 5. When I reach the installation page however I get the following info:-

* PHP 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.7 installed
* Found database drivers for: MySQL
* PHP server API is apache2handler; ok, using pretty URLs (index.php/Page_Title)
* Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
* Session save path (/var/lib/php5) appears to be valid.
* PHP's memory_limit is 16M. Attempting to raise limit to 20M... ok.
* Couldn't find Turck MMCache, eAccelerator, APC or XCache; cannot use these for object caching.
* Found GNU diff3: /usr/bin/diff3.
* Couldn't find GD library or ImageMagick; image thumbnailing disabled.
* Installation directory: /var/lib/mediawiki
* Script URI path: /mediawiki
* Installing MediaWiki with php file extensions
* Environment checked. You can install MediaWiki.

The problem is, is that it finds the drivers for mysql but not postgres. How do I fix this???

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Well, not meaning to sound flip about it, but installing PostgreSQL might fix it. Do you have postgresql installed on your box? Is it up and running?

This thread is a bit dated, but may still help:

Hello TB0ne and thanks for your response!

Yes Postgresql is up and running! I am silly but not that silly!

Is it possible that I need to place the driver in a particular location so that it can be found by mediawiki?

Just checking...you'd be surprised how sometimes it's something like that, and no one asks for a few days, after 100 responses.

There isn't a 'driver', per-say, for Postgres. If you're compiling from source, you may need the postgresql-devel libraries. You should be able to grab them from the online repos, and install them. On that note, have you checked the online sources, for a pre-compiled mediawiki?

Try "sudo aptitude install postgresql-devel" and/or "mediawiki"....

Well... first of all, MW 1.11.2 seems a little bit old: MW is at version 1.15.

Anyway, the problem is probably due to the fact that PHP PostgreSQL client library is required.

Take a look at this page on Mediawiki website for more info: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/PostgreSQL

Thanks for your responses TBOne and Briotti.

I did have all the server and client files that were required installed (I checked again just to make sure). I figured out that I was actually missing the 'php5-pgsql'...installed this, restarted the apache and postgres servers and it has now found the driver for postgres! Thank you both for your help...silly thing was that I thought I had done this a few weeks back when I first run into this problem, so was puzzled as to what I was missing (if anything) and why it wasnt actually working!

Thanks for your help guys!
