wiki site (I hope). Unfortunately i've had little success installing the

version. Looking at this article here
it says it can be used
in versions 1.6 and up, but in the detailed information area it says it

Not looking to have fort knoxx at the moment since my site is sort of back
water, but down the road I do hope to increase my security a bit. Mostly
want to prevent people from inputing naughty words probably using the
$wgSpamRegex command and prevent established IP spam address from trying to
create accounts to spam the wiki site.
Using an outdated version with security vulnerabilities is not the way
to begin securing the wiki.
What problems do you have upgrading?
You don't have PHP 5? PHP 4 has reached its end of life and should not
be used any more.
