I'd import the items using importDump in the maintenance scripts.
This requires writing a script to embed your items in the mediawiki
xml, but that's not too hard.

I'm new to the forum and I'm looking to write a PHP script that
generates (from the same server as is running the mediawiki) a new,
orphaned, wiki page and also creates the initial page content as an
automated server action.
I have another database for a company application which contains a
large table of items (+10k items) for which I wish to generate wiki
So here's my question: --- What are the steps to manually crate a
new wiki page in the mediawiki MySQL database without using the
mediawiki web-pages? For example, if I were going to make a page
and add content to it exclusively from a tool like "phpMyAdmin".
I'm not looking (specifically) for the php code to do this. I just
need to know what the sequence of events is (like an algorithm) and
what pitfalls to look out for.
I don't want to make the wiki unstable. My goal is that when the
PHP script I intend to write is done, the MySQLWiki database
wouldn't know that it wasn't added by a typical user using the
wiki's broswer interface.
Thanks (in advance),
