Question

Hi folks, I need to upgrade a MediaWiki installation from RH6/Apache 2.2 to RH7/Apache 2.4. I have already migrated the files and mySQL database, but httpd will not come up due to significant changes in what goes in the httpd.conf file, particularly in authentication/access and disk caching. I can't find a guide to do this. Can anyone help?

It would likely be best to start over with a fresh apache configuration file for your wiki and then re-apply configuration changes according to current best practice, rather than taking the existing file and attempting to tweak everything to upgrade it.

And where is this "best practice" documented?

Not in any one particular location, it will involve a fair amount of searching most likely depending on the specific nature of the things you wish to do. The apache site at least is a good start insofar as it documentions how to do things. For TLS, there is a thing on the mozilla website that can generate solid and secure configurations for you for "modern" or "intermediate" browser compatibility. As far as MediaWiki is concerned, the only thing it needs is for the server to run PHP for .php files, and maybe some rewrites for a prettier URL appearance. Everything else is up to you if you'd like to add enhancements.

So there is nothing on what to do from the MediaWiki point of view when Apache is upgraded from 2.2 to 2.4?
