MediaWiki Hosting

MediaWiki is a feature-rich server-based free and open-source wiki implementation software, under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), and distributed under the Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0 license. MediaWiki is incredibly powerful and scalable to process and display data from databases like MySQL. Hundreds of websites, both public and private, as well as thousands of businesses, have utilized MediaWiki as a knowledge management and content management system. Some famous websites using MediaWiki include Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, and WikiHow. Organizations from SFMOMA to NASA utilize MediaWiki, which enables teams to manage their documentation in a single flexible and adaptable location!

All text material for MediaWiki is kept in a database and is created using the PHP programming language. The software is designed to handle massive projects with hundreds of thousands of views per second, and terabytes of material with ease. One of the biggest websites in the world, Wikipedia has been one of the biggest challenges for developers to scale through numerous levels of caching and database replication. MediaWiki allows users to gather knowledge, organize it, and make it accessible to people with the aid of MediaWiki hosting. It is strong, multilingual, open-source, expandable, adaptable, trustworthy, and cost-free.

When a user makes an edit to a page, MediaWiki uploads it to the database without erasing earlier iterations of the page, making it simple to roll back in the event of spamming or vandalism. MediaWiki can also manage image and multimedia files that are stored in the file system. MediaWiki hosting provides caching for big wikis with lots of users and is readily paired with proxy server software. Structured data may also be handled by MediaWiki with the help of special extensions!

MediaWiki history

UseModWiki, an established wiki software, was the platform used when Wikipedia first went live in January 2001. All wiki pages are kept in text files and are stored using UseModWiki, a software built in the Perl programming language. Soon it became apparent that the functionality and performance of this program were constrained. Magnus Manske, a University of Cologne student, developer, and Wikipedia editor started developing a replacement for UseModWiki in the middle of 2001. UseModWiki was created expressly for use by Wikipedia. This software's data was all kept in a MySQL engine database and was created using the PHP programming language. By August 24, 2001, the new software had been essentially finished, and soon after that, a test wiki for it was created.

MediaWiki features

Globalization: Developers have paid close attention to internationalization and localization, as a result of the Wikimedia projects' strong emphasis on multilingualism. The user interface has been entirely or partially translated into more than 300 languages, and site administrators can further personalize it. Several extensions, most notably those compiled in the MediaWiki Language Extension Bundle, are made to improve MediaWiki's multilingualism and internationalization!

Manual Setup: The user must have administrator rights on a server running PHP and a suitable kind of SQL database to install MediaWiki. If the majority of one's infrastructure is powered by a framework like Zope or Ruby on Rails that is generally incompatible with MediaWiki. To set up the wiki's settings, a web browser is used to visit a PHP script.

The user is only prompted for the bare minimum of the necessary information, any other adjustments, such as allowing uploads, adding a site logo, and installing extensions, must be performed by editing configuration settings found in a file named LocalSettings.php. The MediaWiki community makes a thorough installation manual available for new users though!

Scalability: This is another important aspect of MediaWiki as it supports a user-friendly interface. The software offers more than 1,800 extensions and more than 1,000 configuration settings that may be used to add or modify different functionality.

Markup: Extensible lightweight wiki markup is used by MediaWiki, and is intended to be simpler to use and understand than HTML. There are tools available for translating MediaWiki markup to HTML for content like tables. A MediaWiki markup specification has been attempted, however, it appears that Wiki code needs context-sensitive grammar rules instead. Additionally, the "Content-Language" HTTP header and the "lang" HTML property can be used to specify the language of the actual wiki content.
