I have added a lot of extensions to the Debian installed wiki that I

I installed them by puting the extensions

This is not generating any error messages within the pages of my wiki,
also I can see no indication that they are working either.
Any tips would be appreciated.
Each extension must be placed in its own directory under
$WIKIDIR/extensions/ . $WIKIDIR is the directory where you installed
your MediaWiki software.
For example, the "cite" extension would be installed as two files under
the Cite directory in the extensions directory:
Just in case you haven't already been there, here is the page that
explains installing extensions:
To be honest, I've never heard of the directories you listed above. I
don't have the Debian version of MediaWiki (1.7) installed. I downloaded
version 1.11.0 from the MediaWiki website.
Apt-file shows me that mediawiki1.7 (Etch) doesn't contain any such
directories as those you listed. Perhaps you're using a different
distribution. Anyway, the mediawiki in Debian is either old and crusty
or weirdly configured. I suggest you get it from the MediaWiki web site.
