Mediawiki Off-line Documentation
by Mock, Jason - 0993 - MITLL
I find myself, on a regular basis, deploying Mediawiki in air-gap
environments that do not contain a DMZ. In other words, the users of these
systems will not have access to any external websites in any way (e.g.,
http://www.mediawiki.org, http://www.wikipedia.com). This ultimately
results in their inability to review editing and formatting documentation
while making edits to the wiki.
Historically speaking I vaguely remember there being some form of prepared
dump of the documentation being available through either Mediawiki¹s main
page or through wikimedia.org. Unfortunately with my latest deployment I¹m
not seeing that to be the case. Is there anything like this available any
more, so I don¹t have to transcribe help pages manually? All I need is just
basic editing documentation so users don¹t have to jump back and forth just
to figure out how to display an image or add a link.
I¹m hoping I¹m just not finding the right page, but I don¹t remember it
being this difficult to locate.
Either way, I appreciate any guidance anyone can provide.
