I installed mediawiki in the standard apt-get manner, but it fails.
I had a working previous install, but it stopped working, so I removed and re-installed.
I now get an error on web access: 403 forbidden
You don't have permission to access /mediawiki/ on this server.
and the apache2 logs show:
Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/lib/mediawiki1.7/
I see several complaints about this same situation and error from 3-4 years ago, and a PHP version incompatibility at that time.
Any suggestions what may have broken - and what to do?
