Alfresco 3C stable and MediaWiki install failure

Hi,

I have been trying to get the MediaWiki amp to install successfully with the Alfresco 3c Stable release.  This is a real puzzle because with an earlier version of 3C, like the end of December 2008, I was able to install Alfresco and then get the latest build of MediaWiki from the nightly build page and it ran OK.

So, now I have the stable 3C and the MediaWiki amp file referenced from the downloads page and it doesn't work. 

I am following the steps provided on the Install guide from here:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/w/images/a/a1/Install_Configure_Alfresco_Lab3Final.pdf

and the Mediawiki and php install steps from here:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_MediaWiki_AMP
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/PHP_Templating_and_Scripting_AMP_Installation_Instructions
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Enabling_Alfresco_PHP_Server

This all works.  I suppose it is possible these are not the correct instructions for PHP but I downloaded the latest of everything from here:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Labs_3_Final_download_files

The first thing that happens after installing the mediawiki amp is that upon restarting the Alfresco server, the amp is not deployed. It just gets ignored. 

So, I decided to shut down the server and delete the exploded alfresco war file to force the re-deploy.  This works until the startup gets to the mediawiki application and tries to deploy it.  I figured, that because the modifications for php that need to be added to the alfresco web.xml file were lost when I forced the deployment, that this caused the failure.

So, I shut down the alfresco server, added back in the php modifications and started up the Alfresco server again.

Same problem.  So here is the failure.  Does anyone have a solutions to what is causing this?  Thanks very much.
