Where did you install Mediawiki? Looks like you forgot to make a Directory-Entry in your httpd.conf with a Order-Directive.


If you installed XAMPP to C:\xampp, and put your Mediawiki installation to C:\mediawiki, you have to set it up like this in your httpd.conf:

Code: Select all
DocumentRoot C:/mediawiki

<Directory "C:/mediawiki">
   Order allow,deny
   allow from all
