Download MediaWiki 1.41.1 (.zip)

Download .tar.gz instead

Help with downloading

Most computers can extract a zip file without additional software.

Users of 7-Zip: Note that prior to 2021, 7-Zip was unable to extract .tar.gz files correctly (T257102). It is recommended to update to the latest version first.

Users of macOS: Note that The Unarchiver is unable to extract .tar.gz files correctly (T258716). Archive Utility can be used instead.

All versions

To users of MediaWiki versions 1.38 and earlier: These versions are no longer supported. Please update to a newer version of MediaWiki.

System Requirements

MediaWiki requires PHP 7.4.3+, a webserver software, and either MariaDB 10.3.0+, MySQL 5.7.0+, SQLite 3.8.0+ or PostgreSQL 10.0+. Using MariaDB or MySQL is recommended as Wikipedia uses MariaDB. Any other database servers are less tested and you may likely run into some bugs.

For more information, please read the pages on system requirements and compatibility.

MediaWiki is not compatible with PHP 7.4.0 - 7.4.2 due to an upstream bug. Use PHP 7.4.3+ instead. See task T246594 for more information.
If using PHP 8, it is recommended to use MediaWiki 1.38.4 or higher. PHP 8 is not in use by Wikimedia wikis, and thus gets less testing, but other groups do use MediaWiki with PHP 8 without issue. If you encounter any bugs when using MediaWiki with PHP 8, please report them. See task T248925 for more information.

Download via command line

To download MediaWiki 1.41.1 in a terminal on a Linux machine using wget, use one of the following commands:

Descargar a traves de Git

Os desenvolvedores activos do MediaWiki deven, en lugar diso, efectuar a descarga através do Git para obter a versión máis recente do software MediaWiki. O repositorio do Git ten versións máis antigas do software, por iso é posible ver unha versión en particular. Developers downloading from Git will also need to manually install dependencies via Composer .

Keep in mind that you are downloading the latest alpha version of MediaWiki, which is not recommended for production use! Although this can be used in production, it is more likely to contain bugs.

Developers wanting to install MediaWiki locally to have an environment for development of MediaWiki core or extensions should also read How to become a MediaWiki hacker for further instructions.

Última versión

Se a súa instalación MediaWiki está fortemente modificada, pode ser difícil para incorporar os últimos cambios / actualizacións oficiais para MediaWiki. Para dar soporte a eses usuarios, mantemos ramas vellos do noso código para ata un ano para o lanzamento legado e ata tres anos para a liberación apoio a longo prazo legado.

Actualizacións de desenvolvemento

Se queres executar a última versión desenvolvida (i.e. alpha), podes baixar it as mediawiki-master.tar.gz, ou download from Git.

Desde Git pode descargar o repositorio completo (sobre 528 MiB)

git clone

ou a "soa versión última" (sobre 85 MiB; isto é a miúdo chamado "shallow clone": menos tempo e pequenas descargas).[1]

git clone --depth 1

You can also view the latest source code in your browser.

Versións antigas

You can find tarballs (with extension *.tar.gz) of old versions of MediaWiki in the MediaWiki download archives.


  1. This could cause reference problems when you later use "git pull" to upgrade your shallow clone and the newer revision refers to older revisions which are not yet downloaded to your system. In such a case you can simply download more - increase the depth value - or all revisions later, or make a fresh shallow clone.
