I think the best thing would be to set up 2 seperate wikis to handle
it, with shared uploads, users, etc. See DefaultSettings.php.
You then set up interwiki links between them and make them local
(check the table).
Currently, there is no way to limit access on a namespace level, just
absolute naming of pages. (eg, they can read Main Page, About, and

We expect to have "public pages" that everyone in the

We make a lot of work trough the local network (a
intranet) but, also we make some work trough internet.
If we made all access trough the central web server,
we are generating an unnecesary load when we work
from the intranet.
In this context, we want two URL to the same wiki
* one accesible from internet.
* one accesible from intranet.
On 1.4.0, I had working the two URL's but with some
cache problems with the links. This was solved by
providing the same path to the proxy URL and the
internal URL, but I think that may be solved too with
a high value in $wgCacheEpoch (at least in 1.4.5).
To have two URL's, I've made one on a "real"
installation and the other, on a directory which
contains the files of the first level but all sub
directories are symbolic links to the "real"
installation. In this way, I can have different

defined the $wgServer with the different URL's.

The new release 1.4.5 has a some great improvements

1.4.0 I can't do to work fine...EXUSE MY ENGLISH :-(
But in 1.4.5, when return from the login form, the
$wgServer has the value taken from the "real"
installation... I think that in some file in the
includes directory, exists a ../LocalSettings.php
reference but I couldn't find it.
I hope that this may be useful.
PD: We think implement a better way to "publish pages"
than the $wgWhiteListRead, in first time using a
"public" namespace... does anyone have a better idea?
