The extensions package in debian sets up a pair of directories that are
very different than the tarball installation in /etc/mediawikiXXX/
You will need to manage the provided extensions in the same manner as
you doe the modules available, & sites available, system that is used in
apache2. The real issue with the debian system is that it is not
realistic to manage a real working wiki that "might" require the
addition of extensions that are not in the debian packages. It does
work, ONLY works well with the extensions that are packed with debian,
and that is a far cry from what is available. FYI I tried this about a
year ago and a yaer before that and both times decided to use the
standard installation as it worked well and I was able to modify it as
Determine your own mileage from these comments as they are NOT intended
