I ported an existing MediaWiki site to inmotion and got it working on the temporary URL.

Now I have the real site up and running, it works ok but the URLs are:

wiki.example.com/~userxx/wiki

Anyone know what to edit (LocalSettings.php?) to get my user name out of the URL. It works but its a bit ugly.

Hi axlesoft,

To remove your cPanel username from your mediawiki url, you'll need to update the $wgScriptPath setting in your LocalSettings.php file.

I took a quick look at your LocalSettings.php file, and I saw that you had this setting in place:

$wgScriptPath = "/~userxx/wiki";


After updating this to:

$wgScriptPath = "/wiki";


... the issue with the username in the url has been resolved.

I hope that helps!

Thanks,
- Brad
