Install the ParserFunctions extension

If you want to install the ParserFunctions extension on MediaWiki, please follow these steps:

  • Go to the MediaWiki extensions directory:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/mediawiki/htdocs/extensions
  • Create the ParserFunctions directory:

    $ mkdir ParserFunctions
  • Change to the new directory:

    $ cd ParserFunctions
  • Download the extension from http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:VisualEditor.

    $ wget -O parserfunctions.zip https://git.wikimedia.org/zip/?r=mediawiki/extensions/ParserFunctions&h=refs/heads/master&format=gz && unzip parserfunctions.zip
  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/mediawiki/htdocs/LocalSettings.php file and add this code at the end of the file:

    require_once( "$IP/extensions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php" );
  • If you want to use the integrated string functionality, add just after that line:

    $wgPFEnableStringFunctions = true;
  • Restart the Apache server

    $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache
