I wanted to make a mediawiki site completely secure. In other words you'd
need to type in a username/password before you even could see the site? Is
this kind of thing possible? I'm hoping it's a simple Apache setting.
I have a few wikis set up at nearlyfreespeach.net and had a problem
with the url turing into something ugly. It would have several
sub-domains and I fixed the problem by adding this to the top of
Localsettings.php: $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] = "url of wiki";
Is this the best way to effect such changes?

I inserted text into the body of an existing page on my site, and then I
try to search for that text sometime later, and said page does not show up
in my search list. However, other, pre-existing text does show up in said
page when I search for it.
This leads me to wonder:
Does MediaWiki (in my case, 1.4.0) have to build a search index every so often?
If so, when/how does it do this? (I don't see a cron anywhere...)
And if not...why would my text not show up in the search? (The text in
question is "chicago", without the quotes. In my wiki page it is nice and
white-space separated. I don't understand...)
I've managed to install Wikimedia and run a wiki on my own computer
using the Saint WAMP package.
But I'm stumped on how to create a second and subsequent wikis for the
other projects I have.
Can anybody suggest how I could do this?
Hi, I installed MediaWiki a week ago and I'm tweaking it now just before
starting to populate it with content.
My issue is that I'm doing a bilingual Japanese-English wiki, where each
page has its correspondent one in the other language (which would be
only a translation). I've read all I've been able to find about having
two namespaces or doing a sister project, but as it's extremely
convenient to have only one user database I've opted for creating two
namespaces. The problem is that the title of each page is now
"English:Pagetitle" or "Japanese:Pagetitle". Is it possible to remove
the namespace and colon there?
Has anybody run into the same problem of setting a multilingual wiki
that made mandatory the use of only one user database? Is it possible to
share the two user tables across two different wikis?
Thanks in advance...
I wanted to upgrade from an 1.3.9 Mediawiki to a 1.5b3 MediaWiki. All went
well except all Articles which contained a german special character, were
not imported at all. (Well at least from the user's point of view, cause i
can find them in the Database). Is this a usual problem, where there also is
a usual solution, or do i have to do it the hard way (debugging, analizing
the database-article-name, the link-name, the article-name ... eventually
run a script that replaces all theese with some 'correct ones') ?

I am trying to setup a dictionary using MediaWiki and I was wondering what the
best way is to go about setting it up as a multiple language dictionary (i.e.
each definition has translations in 4 other languages). I have heard about the
Ultimate Wikitionary which would be perfect, but I have to set something up
temporarily until that has been developed. From what I understand from
Wikimedia MetaWiki pages, the way to do it is to have separate installations
for each language and using inter-Wiki links to make definitions link to their
My questions are: am I correct about a multiple install being the recommended
way to setup a multilanguage wiki?
Is it okay to do it using multiple installations on the same server? Or is it
necessary to have a domain name for each installation?
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you,
