MediaWiki – A Wiki Software in PHP Language | Miri Infotech


February 6, 2018


Miri Infotech is launching a product which will configure a tool called as MediaWiki to a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering) and graphical techniques which is embedded pre-configured tool with Ubuntu 16.04 and ready-to-launch AMI on Amazon EC2. MediaWiki is a free wiki software. It runs on many websites, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary and Wikimedia commons. It is written in the PHP programming language and stores the contents into a database. The software is optimized to efficiently handle large projects, which can have terabytes of content and hundreds of thousands of hits per second. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License. It is basically designed to run on a large server farm for a website that gets millions of hits per day. Not only this but is an extremely powerful, scalable software and a feature-rich wiki implementation that uses PHP to process and display data stored in a database, such as MySQL.

Some Features of MediaWiki are:

Now let us discuss about some of the features of MediaWiki in brief and get to know how flexible it is for users to use it. They are as follows:

  • Feature-rich and extensible, both on-wiki and with hundreds of extensions;
  • Scalable and suitable for both small and large sites;
  • Simple to install, working on most hardware/software combinations; and
  • Available in your language.

The MediaWiki action API is a web service that provides convenient access to wiki features, data, and meta-data over HTTP, via a URL usually at api.php. Clients request particular “actions” by specifying an action parameter, mainly action=query to get information. It was known as the MediaWiki API, but there are now other web APIs available that connect to MediaWiki such as RESTBase and the Wikidata query service. Client programs can log in to a wiki, get data, and post changes automatically by making HTTP requests to the web service.

MediaWiki used to be really focused on Wikimedia sites, but efforts have been made to make it more generic and better accommodate the needs of these third-party users.

System Requirements

MediaWiki requires PHP 5.5.9+ and either MySQL 5.5.8+, MariaDB, or one of the other three possible stores.
