The Packages extension allows to create packages of templates and other articles from remote wikis. The resulting packages are PHP files which can be added or removed like a normal extension without affecting the database.


  1. Download Packages.php.
  2. Create a directory Packages in your $IP/extensions directory.
  3. Extract the files to this $IP /extensions/Packages directory.
  4. Add to the bottom of LocalSettings.php :
    require_once( "$IP/extensions/Packages/Packages.php" );
  5. Installation can now be verified through Special:Version of your wiki.
