Hi Guys,

I am a complete newbie so please excuse me if this really isnt a bug. I wanted to 
setup MediaWiki on my website so I checked out the instructions 
( which suggest 
that its a fairly striaght forward process of downloading the build tar file then 
uploading it, fiddling with permissions and then following the installation and 
config instructions. As a newbie this was great it seemed pretty straight forward.

I downloaded the tar file, uncompressed it and uploaded it to my sever, changed the 
permsisions and got the setup page however when I clicked on the link it gave me a 
404 error because it could not find /config/index.php. I manually downloaded this 
file from the CVS, created the directory server side and violla it worked the only 
problem now is that its giving out about not finding /includes/Defines.php. Is this a 
problem with the build? I think maybe the directory structure isnt being created when 
I uncompress the tar so all the files are there just not in the right 
places/direcotries. I am doing this under Win2K would that make any difference? I 
couldnt find any forum to discuss this and i would appreciate if someone could point 
me to a good one as I would like some assitance with customising it etc and it would 
be helpful to talk to people who have done this. Do I get notification of this bugs 
response etc? If not whoever is looking at the bug could they email me so I know 
whats happening?
