cd public_html

Download the latest mediawiki (copy link location from mediawiki download page)...

wget https://releases.wikimedia.org/mediawiki/1.35/mediawiki-1.35.1.tar.gz
tar xf mediawiki-1.35.1.tar.gz 

Rename the wiki folder something short like "wiki"

mv mediawiki-1.35.1 wiki

Setup the database: SEE Rita's Notes PART 6!

NB: REPLACE USERNAME with your user name!

 sudo mysql -u root -p
 CREATE DATABASE USERNAMEwiki;  
 CREATE USER 'USERNAMEwiki'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'SOMEPASSWORD';
 GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON USERNAMEwiki.* TO 'USERNAMEwiki'@'localhost';
