Wikimedia “global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world.” Their site says:
Through various projects, chapters, and the support structure of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia strives to bring about a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
Their most popular software project is MediaWiki, which is what they themselves use to run Wikipedia, along with a few hundred other wikis.
The installation procedure is easy and if you use CiviHosting of course we will do that for you. But if you prefer to do it yourself, see our How to Install MediaWiki guide.
Hosting for MediaWiki
MediaWiki requires a server with three elements: web server software, PHP and a database server.
The web server could be IIS, for Windows systems, or one of the smaller Linux systems such as LiteSpeed, nginx or lighttpd, but the most popular is Apache, and that is what CiviHosting uses for all servers.
For PHP, the server must be configured with a recent version, and must include PCRE, Sessions, JSON, mbstring and fileinfo. Non-core features, included in themes or extensions, may have other PHP requirements.
The database server could be Microsoft SQL Server, SQLite or PostgreSQL, but the most popular choice is MySQL and that’s what CivicRM uses for all servers.
Other requirements: There are other tools that make it easier to host and use MediaWiki such as ImageMagick or GD for image processing, in particular for creating thumbs. Then a mailer tool is required for the server to send emails, such as updates and password resets. Then shell access (for Linux machines) makes maintenance tasks much easier.
CiviHosting specializes in hosting MediaWiki and we setup and maintain the server for you.
