Manual: Contenidos de MediaWiki database layout MySQL/es

The MySQL database engine is the most commonly-used database backends for MediaWiki. Since MySQL used to be the relational database management system used by the Wikimedia Foundation websites, it is well-supported in MediaWiki. Much of the advice for MySQL and for MariaDB apply to each other.

See Compatibility#Database for a list of supported versions.

Básicamente, si MySQL o MariaDB están instalados, el script de instalación puede crear una base de datos para ti. Just supply the script with your MySQL root password (by default blank).

Advertencia Advertencia: Dejar la contraseña de root en blanco puede comprometer seriamente la seguridad de la instalación de MediaWiki. You should modify the password if you haven't already.
If you are installing MediaWiki on an ISP server, you might have to share a db with some other applications, which increases the risk of a conflict between database tables required by MediaWiki with pre-existing tables. To solve this problem you can instruct MediaWiki to use a table prefix, so that all tables of MediaWiki begin with this prefix. Alternatively, if your ISP allows, use different databases for each application that resides on the server.


Multiple maintenance scripts are included in the /maintenance/ directory of your MediaWiki installation. Some of these scripts are provided to refresh parts of the database as one-time operations.
