[Mediawiki-l] Page Protection

Version 1.14 MediaWiki

I need to be able to utilize "Page Protection" in my MediaWiki installation.

I have absolutely no clue how to do it and the explanations I've found via google are only confusing me.

Can someone please provide me with a step by step solution (including the why and how for each step)

The ONLY thing that I've been able to figure out so far is that I had to create a group "DrawingQuality" and assign it the "protect" right in LocalSettings.php.  The group shows up in the Special:ListGroupRights mediawiki page, so I believe that is correct.  I'm not sure if that group has all of the rights that they should have, however.

I want that group to be able to protect pages.  If they are the ones who protect the page, I want them and only them to be able to unprotect it.

Thanks for your help,
