This series of articles presents a series of processes that are kept up to date to put together a MediaWiki with the following goals:

  • Suitable for a corporate environment
  • Emphasis on security
  • Demonstrable build - Each article in this guide has a section describing what has been tested with that article and when
  • Safe upgrades - You have to do the testing for your environment but it will be based on a Long Term Support OS and system software
  • Minimum amount of software - keep it simple
  • Current software - get the latest stuff
  • Visual Editor
  • Secured AD/LDAP authentication with Single Sign On via Kerberos/GSSAPI. Browser configuration is also covered

The idea is that you can deploy a MediaWiki and concentrate on the wiki rather than the system

  1. Reference Build on Ubuntu
  2. Wiki Installation
  3. Client Configuration
  4. Curated list of Extensions

Status and to do[edit]

Comments and requests please refer to the Discussion page.

  • Suggested extension list and configuration - Started
  • Testing functionality post upgrade
  • At least one more reference OS install - Centos? Windows?
  • Verify security - Point OpenVAS and co at it
  • Consider breaking "Intranet Installation" up into separate pages
