I'm trying to install the latest MW but installation stops every time:
MediaWiki 1.5.0 installation
Please include all of the lines below when reporting installation problems.
PHP 5.0.4: ok
PHP server API is apache2handler; ok, using pretty URLs (index.php/Page_Title)
Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
PHP's memory_limit is 28M. If this is too low, installation may fail!
Have zlib support; enabling output compression.
Turck MMCache installed
Found GNU diff3: /usr/bin/diff3.
Found ImageMagick: /usr/bin/convert; image thumbnailing will be enabled if you

Calm down, it's not that critical...the latest version of MediaWiki is 1.5.3, by
the way. And have you checked the file is intact and readable?
Yes, it's critical. The file is intact and readable.
The problem is 1.5.3 cannot be installed. Please try out if you don't agree that
the issue is a blocker for those of us who cannot install it.
I'm using Fedora Core 4 btw, and I don't have a php.ini in /etc as suggested by
another user, so now php is running in it's default configuration
I've just installed a copy of Fedora Core 4 and tried installing 1.5.3;
it installed with no problems at all with default configuration.
Selected the "server" installation option, and clicked 'development tools' and 'mysql server' in
package selection. Ran 'yum update' to update all packages after installation.
Ran /etc/init.d/httpd start and /etc/init.d/mysqld start to start Apache and MySQL. Untarred
mediawiki-1.5.3.tar.gz into /var/www/html, chmod a+w'd the config subdir, and ran the MediaWiki
install with default options.
Installation was successful.
I then installed php-mmcache via yum, restarted the web server, and re-ran the installation. This
time I received the described error message.
I then uninstalled php-mmcache (rpm -e php-mmcache), restarted the web server, and re-ran the
installer. This time it was again successful.
Advice: the php-mmcache package is most likely buggy. Turck MMCache hasn't been maintained in a long
time, so it is likely to be unreliable with PHP 5. Remove it, and if you need a caching solution try
packages which are under current development, such as APC or eAccelerator.
Installation is successful with php-eaccelerator installed instead of php-mmcache.
Please uninstall the broken php-mmcache package and use php-eacclerator instead.
