SMW+ Setup

Semantic MediaWiki+ is an enhanced configuration of MediaWiki, containing:

  • Install Microsoft Windows (possibly under VMware, etc); install and run an integrated copy of SMW+ inside it.

  • Install a Unixish operating system (eg, Linux, Mac OS X); install and run SMW+ and all of the needed prerequisites.
