MediaWiki

The open source wiki engine that powers Wikipedia.

MediaWiki is free and open-source wiki software which helps your team collaborate and makes documentation of internal or external processes easier. It runs on many websites, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikimedia Commons and more. MediaWiki software is written in the PHP programming language and it works by storing the contents into a database. Like WordPress, which is based on a similar licensing and architecture, it has become the dominant software in its category. Since it’s launch, MediaWiki’s development has been coordinated by the Wikimedia Foundation.

Besides its use on Wikimedia sites, MediaWiki has been used as a knowledge management and content management system on many thousands of websites, public and private.

MediaWiki features:

  • Internationalization and localisation
  • Visual Editing Interface (and editing in wiki markup language)
  • Rich content functionalities
  • Tracking edits
  • Content organization (pages, sub-pages, tags, categories etc )
  • Customization and Templates

When a user submits an edit to a page, MediaWiki writes it to the database, but without deleting the previous versions of the page, thus allowing easy reverts in case of vandalism or spamming. MediaWiki can manage image and multimedia files, too, which are stored in the filesystem. For large wikis with lots of users, MediaWiki supports caching and is able to support such requests.

Stay focused on collaborating and let us take care of the rest.
