I want to import the Wiki I developed on WikiSpaces.com to MediaWiki. Can anybody tell me how to do it?

Import from WikiSpaces
It depends on what information/tools do you have to export the wiki. See Manual:Moving a wiki
Wikispaces is going away. HELP!!
Wikispaces Sez they can export the wikispaces wiki as :
- MediaWiki - this is a conversion of your wikispaces data into mediawiki (mediawiki.org) dialect"
Anyone done this?? Help??

I guess what you have is Manual:Backing up a wiki#Backup the content of the wiki (XML dump). Follow those instructions and Manual:Importing XML dumps
This tool can import pages, files, images, users and history.
I made a script to import Wiki from WikiSpaces into MediaWiki. This tool can import pages, files, images, users and history.
Your script is amazing. Where are the users imported to? I have a problem in that it didn't seem to import the email or passwords for the users so I want to clean out them so I can get them to re-register.
Ilhooq42 that looks amazing.
I am trying to run this script and when I do nothing happens. I suspect that my environment may not have all the tools installed needed to run this script. I don't seem to have the MediaWikiServices.php file in the Includes directory of the wiki, but I'm not sure if I'm looking in the right place. Any advice?
Ignore previous comment - I got the script to run. Thank you so much for this script!
I started a page to have a single hub of discussion for this: Wikispaces. Please help improve it!
Class MWFileProps not found
When I run the import script, I get the above. Any idea how to fix or work around? I'm trying to import two paid wikis (not free ones). I'm using mediawiki 1.27.4
The logic was in
FSFile::getPropsFromPath pre 1.28. It makes little sense to migrate to such an old version of MediaWiki, though - the latest long-term-support version is 1.31.
