I am trying to install Mathjax on a mediawiki installation. From the official page for the extension, I followed all the steps.

  1. Downloaded the latest zip distribution, uploaded and extracted it to /home/user/public_html/wiki/ (the directory where the wiki installation lies)

  2. Checked that it works by going to:

    http://www.mysitename.com/wiki/mathjax/test/sample.html

    Here I see nicely rendered math.

  3. Placed MathJax.php and mwMathJaxConfig.js in the folder:

    public_html/wiki/extensions/MathJax
    
  4. Appended the LocalSettings.php as instructed by adding the following code:

    require_once("/home/user/public_html/wiki/extensions/MathJax/MathJax.php");
    $wgMathJaxJS = array("/mathjax/MathJax.js" => "/home/user/public_html/wiki/extensions/MathJax/mwMathJaxConfig.js");
    

I have tediously checked that the directory paths are all right and removed any errors. I do not get any errors anymore, but the MathJax just won't render. How do I get mathjax to work on my wiki?

You were probably using an incompatible version for the MW installation you have. Probably too late to answer, but the extension has been updated to work with MW1.18.
