A project I peeked into but never started.
more possibly coming later
I would NEVER EVER recommend regular humans go anywhere near running raw server software on their desktop. It's a horror - I mean truly a horror unlike any you've ever imagined - to get that shit to work, to lock it down and to keep it running. If for some reason you did want to run a server, use a proper server distribution. A branch will eventually crop up for Unity Linux I'm sure, but there are Linux and BSD distributions which excel at this task.
So for us regular humans, a LAMP (software bundle) is the best thing to use. This is a collection of all the necessary tools which have been pre-configured to cooperate and bundled together in one .. much easier to use package. This concept has become wildly improved over the years, and I've used a bunch of different packages.
Checking out Bundled server software -- it works!

Using PCLinuxOS Business Edition - Server edition (version not recorded).
This is a simple guide, made for my reference but carefully documented for others to also use.
Regarding MediaWiki version 1.15.1 or a little earlier.
How to rescue content from a MediaWiki wiki.
This was a failed project; it was impossible to automate so I ended up pursuing this by hand.

This was an aborted project to look into leveraging ways to use MediaWiki by outside influences.
