MediaWiki - Wikipedia's Wiki Engine

MediaWiki is a powerful wiki engine that was originally developed to serve the needs of Wikipedia - the free encyclopedia. Today, MediaWiki is used publicly by many of the largest and most popular wikis online, while privately it is being increasingly deployed inside company Intranets as a knowledge and content management system.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • MediaWiki configurations:

    • Installed from upstream source code to /var/www/mediawiki

    • Ensure clean and compliant HTML ($wgUseTidy)

    • Out of the box file uploading and image resizing (GD library)

      • Maximum filesize: 2MB
      • Supported file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg

      Security note: Updates to MediaWiki may require supervision so they ARE NOT configured to install automatically. See MediaWiki documentation for upgrading.

  • SSL support out of the box.

  • Adminer administration frontend for MySQL (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL).

  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email (e.g., password recovery, user registration)

  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache2, PHP and MySQL.

Customization details:

  • Site logo is located at /var/www/mediawiki/images/logo.png (recommended size: 135x135px).

  • Site name and administrative emails (set in /var/www/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php):

    $wgSitename = "";
    $wgEmergencyContact = webmaster@localhost;
    $wgPasswordSender = webmaster@localhost;
