Install script for Mediawiki on freshly created virtualhost name, selecting the install option:
Initial login for script Same username and password as domain
Results in a failed install with error messages:
Found http://releases.wikimedia.org:80/mediawiki/1.35/mediawiki-1.35.0.tar.gz in cache .. Configuring webserver PHP settings .. .. already done. Applying web server configuration .. .. done Now installing MediaWiki version 1.35.0 .. Installation script failed : Invalid wiki admin password: Passwords must be at least 10 characters. More information on using this script can be found at http://www.mediawiki.org/. .. installation was only partially complete. Re-loading Webmin .. .. done Applying web server configuration .. .. done
Upon investigation, I discovered the script was installed, contrary to the message indicating install failure.
The username for the domain had been installed with a pre-encrypted password which I thought exceeded 10 characters. But to make sure I uninstalled Mediawiki, went into user/groups to change its password to one >10 characters, went back to the install scripts and reinstalled Mediawiki only to receive the same errors.
