Installation on Linux - Step by Step

Here is a step by step procedure for Linux, that should work for other unixy operating systems as well:

  1. Open a command line window (e.g. using Konsole or XTerm).
  2. If necessary install Composer: ``` sh curl -sS | php sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer ```
  3. Navigate to the root folder of your MediaWiki installation. That's the one with the LocalSettings.php file in it.
  4. Open the composer.local.json file in an editor and add the Chameleon skin to the require section: require section: ``` "require": { "mediawiki/chameleon-skin": "~1.0" } ``
    • Remark 1: If you do not have acomposer.local.json<tt>file (MediaWiki <1.25), usecomposer.json` instead.
    • Remark 2: If you do not have a composer.json file (MediaWiki <1.23.5), copy composer.json.example to composer.json first.
  5. To actually install Chameleon run the command composer update "mediawiki/chameleon-skin"
  6. If there were no errors, close the command line window.
  7. Open LocalSettings.php in an editor (e.g. Kate). Include `$wgDefaultSkin='chameleon';` as the last line. Save the file and close the editor.
  8. Open your wiki in a browser. Chameleon should be installed.
  9. If not, force reload the page to refresh your browser cache. (On Firefox or Chrome press Ctrl+F5)
