By the way I'd recommend reading my question again as I added some details of my attempt at building this deb file.

comment How can I create a debian package for MediaWiki 1.25.1?
From what I can gather of this deb file's structure it sort of looks like how my mediawiki installation looks. It has a /usr/share/mediawiki directory that looks like my /var/lib/mediawiki folder, with the changes probably accounted for by the fact it's an older version. In its /var/lib/mediawiki directory some files that I'm gathering are the bare minimum needed there are there (i.e., some of the files that are also in my /var/lib/mediawiki directory) but most of them are virtual-linked to the like-named folders/files in /usr/share/mediawiki. Is that the way deb files usually are?

OK, I have a suspicion that I may have to talk to ya more than that encouraged in comments in order to understand what I need to do. I know there's some chat utility here at SE although I'm not sure how to enter it, so if you don't mind answering some more questions for me could you send me a link or w/e to enter chat, please?

I'm having some trouble deciphering what you've said, you clearly know your stuff, I just don't, rofl. Um, so what you're saying is use your script on the mediawiki-1.25.1.tar.gz archive from which I installed MW 1.25.1 and it should package everything in a .deb file format?

OK, I have the extracted files now but it's hard to know what to update for 1.25.1 and what not to... Any ideas?

@Seth. I wrote this question title this way as when I wrote "How do I..." in the title it suggested it would likely be marked as subjective and closed, rofl. No I haven't I'm afraid. You wouldn't have a URL I can download the package from without having to install it myself?

Whoever has made this downvote please tell me how I can rephrase or even change this question so that it doesn't cause your displeasure? Should I ask instead how to create a debian package that installs and configures a web server, so as to make it generalizable to other web applications like MoinMoin or WordPress?
