Wiki - MediaWiki

To view MediaWiki output, you must deploy the output to a computer where MediaWiki 1.11 or later is installed. You may find it helpful to set up a staging MediaWiki server computer if you generate MediaWiki output. A staging MediaWiki computer allows you to view your generated Wiki output before deploying your generated Wiki output to a production MediaWiki computer.

Before you deploy MediaWiki output, review the following settings on the MediaWiki:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of nnnnnnn bytes exhausted (tried to allocate nnnnnnnn bytes)

Ensure you have enough PHP memory allocated in MediaWiki if you plan to use ePublisher to deploy large page files to your MediaWiki server. You can raise the PHP memory limit in the php.ini and LocalSettings.php files. For more information, see

For more information about MediaWiki, including installing and configuring MediaWiki, see the MediaWiki Web site at For more information about deploying MediaWiki output using ePublisher, see “Deploying Output” on page 335.


One of our users also noted that you will have to make sure that you have write access to the server in order for images to appear:

An way to set this on the server is the following:

chmod go+w $htmlroot/images

For more information on the chmod command, type

man chmod

at the command prompt
