I have the Bitnami MediaWiki Stack on my Macbook Pro. I am certainly not a pro when it comes to all of the coding and 'special language' that MediaWiki involves, but if someone lays out clear and simple directions for me I'll be able to follow.
I use my wiki for the purpose of keeping all of my documentation and notes etc. for the series of books I am writing in one place. Therefore, my highest concern is for my wiki to remain private and for my eyes only.
Okay, onto the issue. I have a new Macbook and I want to be able to access my MediaWiki from that, rather than my old one. At first, I put the original MediaWiki folder onto my external hard drive and transferred it to my new computer, but this did not work. I also cannot use Migration Assistant because the storage on my new computer is less than my old one.
So, how am I able to transfer my MediaWiki over to my new computer, whilst still keeping the wiki private (preferably staying as it is, where it opens with 'localhost')?
Please answer in simple ways that I'll be able to understand
Thanks in advance!
