|Introduced in version:||1.18.0 (r94995)|

Server name with protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) to use for links to the wiki from external locations, such as IRC feeds and email notifications. Must be fully qualified, even if $wgServer is protocol-relative.
You can often ignore this variable. However, if you have set $wgServer to a protocol-relative URL (for example,
//www.mediawiki.org) and you would like links to your wiki to use HTTPS, set this variable to the equivalent HTTPS URL (for example,
$wgServer = '//example.com'; $wgCanonicalServer = 'https://example.com'; // use HTTPS for links. Default would be 'http://example.com'
