Miraheze is a free, non-profit wiki hosting service that uses MediaWiki version 1.32 as its hosting engine, and commits to upgrade to the most recent stable version. Miraheze auto-installs several MediaWiki extensions on new wikis, and will install most extensions at the request of the user who set up the wiki, including VisualEditor and Flow. Miraheze is supported by user donations and does not include any advertising on wikis it hosts.

Contents

ExtensionsEdit

Miraheze can download any MediaWiki extension, at the request of the operator of the wiki, provided that it passes a security review. Many of these can be found at Wikimedia's Git code repositories. To see extensions that are currently downloaded on Miraheze see their github.

There are also Extensions by Miraheze, available as free open source software.

Custom domainsEdit

If requested, Miraheze provides support for custom domains, but under some conditions.

CodeEdit

Miraheze uses open-source code, and hosts it at GitHub.

Extensions, settings and permission managementEdit

Miraheze uses their own extension, called ManageWiki in order to allow users on individual wikis to enable/disable extension, change a variety of settings (their logo, their favicon, etc.) and also to change permissions using the ManageWiki extension.

Issue reportingEdit

Miraheze uses their own Phabricator for issue/bug reports as well as requesting some features for wikis.

ServersEdit

Miraheze currently functions with 15 different servers used for different purposes (MediaWiki, Varnish, Database, Puppet, etc.). A list of these servers and each of their functions can be seen here.
