Installation on Windows - Step by Step

Here is a step by step procedure for Windows:

  1. You first need to install Composer. On Windows just download the installer and run it.
  2. Open a Windows Explorer window and navigate to the root folder of your MediaWiki installation. That's the one with the LocalSettings.php file in it.
  3. For MediaWiki 1.22 and 1.23 you need to copy the file composer.json.example to composer.json. For this, select composer.json.example, press Ctrl+C, then Ctrl+V and then rename the copy to composer.json.
  4. Right-click on the new file and select Use composer here. A command line window will open.
  5. On the command line run the command composer require "mediawiki/chameleon-skin:~1.0"
  6. If there were no errors, close the command line window.
  7. Open LocalSettings.php in an editor capable to do UNIX style line endings (e.g. Notepad++ or Kate, but not the standard Notepad!) 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. (Press Ctrl+F5 on Firefox, Ctrl+Shift+F5 on Internet Explorer.)
