Dies ist ein Index aller unterstützten Konfigurationsoptionen, basierend auf der DefaultSettings.php-Datei.

Bearbeiten Sie niemals DefaultSettings.php; kopiere stattdessen die entsprechenden Zeilen auf LocalSettings.php und ändere sie nach Bedarf.

Wenn Du eine Konfigurationseinstellung hier nicht finden kannst, schaue nach, ob sie in DefaultSettings.php definiert ist. Die Variable sollte dort dokumentiert sein.

Einstellungen, die in MediaWiki-Versionen vor 1.27 entfernt wurden, sind hier nicht mehr aufgeführt. Bitte benutze das Suchfeld, um die entsprechende Manual-Seite zu finden (z.B. Manual:$wgAllowAnonymousMinor).
