MediaWiki Version 1.5 and onwards edit
This setting was deprecated in version 1.5.0, and replaced by $wgGroupPermissions, specifically the 'edit' permission.
To emulate the old effect of setting:
$wgWhitelistEdit = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
If $wgWhitelistRead is set, you must also disable the 'read' permission for it to take effect on anonymous users:
$wgWhitelistRead = array( "Main Page", "Special:Userlogin" ); $wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;
