I'm not totally sure on what the story is, but it goes something like this:
- Professor works on a project at some other University
- The researchers save all their data in a wiki
- Project no longer gets funding so they shut it down
- Wiki instantly becomes disabled and they lost all their work
We were able to talk to that university and get a backup copy of the wiki so we could repurpose it here. The problem is, looks like they just "copied" the wiki directories from the server backup and sent it to us. I have no wiki experience here, but it's my understanding that a wiki must be exported using special:export, then imported using special:import. The files given are not importable.
It's split into a couple of folders.
- Project 1
- Project 2
Project 1 has files like the following: AdminSettings.php, bin, config, COPYING (UNIX executable), docs, extensions, FAQ (UNIX executable), HISTORY (UNIX executable), images, img_auth.php, includes, index.php, INSTALL (UNIX executable), languages, locale, etc etc. Unless otherwise stated, the things listed are directories.
Mysql-data has lots of ".frm" files, which apparently are "Form created by various programs; used to define fields within tables; may also store database data, depending on the format."
Project 2 is the nearly exactly the same as Project 1.
The professor claims this wiki is -critical- to her research, so I guess I have to get it up and running. Suggestions on where to go with what I have? Is it even a wiki in it's current form? How do I get this installed?
