chown apache:apache /tmp/apache-php-session
/etc/init.d/apache2 stop
/etc/init.d/apache2 start

Restrict reading, editing, and creation

Restrict editing and creation to only logged in user:

in file: /var/www/html/wiki/LocalSettings.php

# dthornton Disable reading by anonymous users
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;

# dathornton , restrict editing to only logged in users.
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;

# Anonymous users can't create pages
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createpage'] = false;

# Prevent new user registrations except by sysops
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;

Namespaces with subpage

$wgNamespacesWithSubpages = array_fill(0, 200, true);

(see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgNamespacesWithSubpages for more on this )
