Hi, @Jayprakash12345 @KCVelaga @APerson, Myself Sachin, B.tech 3rd-year student at IIT Kanpur. I am familiar with the tech stack this particular project is using and I am interested in working on this one. Although I have been hanging around here for quite a long time, I guess I had not introduced myself formally. By the way, I was trying to do the first task in the list above and I am done with installing MediaWiki on my server. Now I am installing the GuidedTour extension, which requires me to install other extensions like event logging. Although I have downloaded it but do not how to install and run it. I am not getting any clue from its installations page also, https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:EventLogging. Please guide me and help me to get familiar with the functioning of MediaWiki in general.

Hi @Jayprakash12345 @KCVelaga , I tried installing MediaWiki on my system while performing the first task mentioned above. I was done with setting up the database, PHP, and apache2 server on my system. Then I uploaded the MediaWiki installation folder on my apache2 web-server. Now the last part of this whole process is running a configuration script to complete the installation process. But installation guide is assuming some index.php folder in the MediaWiki folder that I uploaded on my server. This index.php file is absent in my case. So I am doubtful about whether I have done all things right up to that step or not. Please guide me. Here is the link to the page where I am currently facing problem: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Config_script
