What is MediaWiki?

MediaWiki is a free administration software system for digital content which works similarly to the Wikipedia to manage any number of users. The application was originally developed for Wikipedia and offers useres a flexible groundwork for information collections or encyclopaediae and the possiblity to grant users writing access.

Details about the Easy Install App

The software is based on the script language PHP, the various contents can be administered in different database backends with an emphasis on MySQL or MarisDB. The software was further developed as an open source project over the last 10 years and the functional range is constantly expanded. An emphasis was made on the varied and tailored allocation of user rights to make administration of users, user access and contents easier by appointing administrators. From a certain level, suspension of content or active users can be decided as well as granting user rights for editing articles. By hosting the wiki you can adapt the design according to your specifications through CSS and JavaScript.
