# Simple MediaWiki question

I'm thinking about making a mediawiki website. At first I'd like to try it at localhost. I'm running Kubuntu 11.10, so I did:

sudo aptitude install apache2 mysql-server php5 php5-mysql php5-cli


And I also fetched the latest mediawiki to:

/home/boris/Its/sites/mediawiki-1.17.0


Now I'm supposed to open

http://localhost/home/boris/Its/sites/mediawiki-1.17.0/index.php


But firefox says the page is not found. While http://localhost works. If I get it right - I have to open index.php to install mediawiki. So my question is - what do I do wrong?

I'm really sorry for this is might be a very simple question.

By the way do I have to make a db beforehand? Is it possible to use mongoDB as a db with mediawiki?

I think by default apache will look into /srv/www for websites, not the users home directory. The first thing I would check is where apache is looking.
