Die manuelle Installation von MediaWiki kann unangenehm und zeitaufwändig sein, insbesondere für Benutzer ohne technische Vorkenntnisse. Einige Benutzer finden es einfacher MediaWiki mithilfe eines "Software-Pakets" zu installieren. Diese Software-Pakete beinhalten einige Kombinationen von Betriebssystemen, AMP Pakete, die MediaWiki-Software, Erweiterungen und/oder Vorlagen-Pakete.

Warnung Warnung: Be warned that third-party packages often introduce unexpected or potentially damaging changes enforcing Filesystem Hierarchy Standard or other vendor-specific requirements.

These patches are not reviewed by core developers and tend to break the wiki in a number of subtle (or even not so subtle) ways. Also, packages may contain older versions of MediaWiki, so pay close attention to compatibility information for directions and extensions.

The MediaWiki development team refers you to your operational system distributor and the individual communities and companies who maintain these packages for assistance with installing, configuring or using these software bundles.

MediaWiki stacks (MediaWiki-bundled-with-AMP)

Use this solution if you want MediaWiki installed on your hard disk and executed in the conventional way (like most application software, more or less)...

A stack, short for "solution stack", is a set of software required to run together to be able to run at all. MediaWiki can't run on its own, and requires several other programs to be loaded before it can work. Fortunately, easy-to-install bundled stacks, that include MediaWiki in them, are available...

AMP stands for (Apache, MySQL/MariaDB, Perl/PHP/Python), all of which are software that must be installed in order for MediaWiki to run. Once installed, the stack will include your operating system: LAMP is for Linux, MAMP designates Mac OS X, and WAMP is for MS Windows. So, if you were talking about it to somebody else, and you have MediaWiki running on your Windows machine, you might say "I have a WAMP MediaWiki stack installed".

Below are AMP packages that include MediaWiki, with supported operating system(s) specified:

Bitnami MediaWiki Stack

Bitnami MediaWiki Stack is available for Windows, Linux and OS X. See Installing MediaWiki with BitNami for a step by step guide with screenshots.

AMPPS MediaWiki

AMPPS MediaWiki is available for Windows and OS X.


Mediawiki4Intranet is available for Linux as a MediaWiki bundle - includes vanilla MediaWiki with extensions and patches. Does not include third-party tools and converters as most of the Linux users usually 'apt-get' them.

It is also available for Windows as a standalone bundle, including XAMPP and all required third-party tools and media converters (even LaTeX).

MediaWiki Debian package

MediaWiki Debian package will install Apache, MariaDB/MySQL and PHP by default, allowing for further customization if you want.


Meza is a MediaWiki administration program that enables the easy install and maintenance of Apache, MariaDB, PHP 7, MediaWiki including Semantic MediaWiki, Visual Editor, Elasticsearch, and many other extensions. All you need is a minimal RedHat/CentOS install. Requires VirtualBox to run using Vagrant.


Eine MediaWiki Software-Appliance ist eine MediaWiki und AMP Software integriert in ein minimales Betriebssystem. Sie erlaubt Benutzern die manuelle Installation von MediaWiki und dessen Abhängigkeiten zu überspringen und stattdessen ein eigenständiges, einsatzbereites System, das wenig bis keine Konfiguration benötigt, zu benutzen, insbesondere in Kombination mit Software für virtuelle Maschinen wie Virtualbox oder VMware.

MediaWiki-Vagrant is a set of configuration scripts for Vagrant that automate the creation and update of a virtual machine that runs MediaWiki and your choice of extensions and services (source code). This is ideal for MediaWiki developers.

Several third-party MediaWiki software appliances exist. These are LAMP software bundles (Linux+AMP) including a MediaWiki server:

  • Cloudron makes it easy to run web apps on your server and keep them up-to-date and secure. The MediaWiki app installs MediaWiki on Cloudron and can be configured to be a public or private wiki. The installation can be tested at the demo (username: cloudron password: cloudron)
  • TurnKey MediaWiki, based on Debian includes a pre-integrated collection of popular extensions.
  • rPath MediaWiki, based on rPath Linux. (No extensions included.)
  • Webuzo MediaWiki, based on CentOS Linux. Runs on VMware. NOTE: Requires Premium Webuzo License Purchase
  • Bitnami virtual machine Linux image with MediaWiki Stack. (No extensions included.) Requires VMware or VirtualBox. See MediaWiki with BitNami for a step by step guide with screenshots.
  • Meza - A MediaWiki administration program which enables the easy install and maintenance of Apache, MariaDB, PHP 7, MediaWiki including Semantic MediaWiki, Visual Editor, Elasticsearch, and many other extensions. All you need is a minimal RedHat/CentOS install. Requires VirtualBox to run using Vagrant.

Automatische Installation

Die folgende Webseite bietet einen kostenlosen Service an, bei dem mithilfe der FTP-Zugangsdaten der Webseite MediaWiki installiert, konfiguriert und gewartet wird.

Für erhöhte Sicherheit sollte ein eigener FTP-Account und eigene MySQL/MariaDB Datenbank für die Benutzung mit diesem Service benutzt werden.

Extension packages

These are packages of several MediaWiki extensions, requiring MediaWiki software, AMP and an operating system:

MediaWiki enterprise solutions

These are MediaWiki distributions customized and prepackaged for the use of the enterprise.

Name Description Producer
BlueSpice A free MediaWiki distribution for corporate use, which is constantly expanded and improved. Paid-level service available as well. Hallo Welt!
QualityBox Enterprise MediaWiki Platform As A Service eQuality Technology
semantic::core MediaWiki Distribution speziell für Unternehmen und Organisationen. Inklusive Semantik, Visual Editor, Elasticsearch und einer Vielzahl weiterer leistungsstarker Erweiterungen. GmbH & Co. KG.
semantic::apps Plug & Play Applikationen auf Basis von Semantic MediaWiki, zum Beispiel für Prozessmanagement, Projektmanagement oder um Kontakte zu verwalten. Verfügbar als on-premise, Cloud oder gehostete Lösung. GmbH & Co. KG.
Dokit A MediaWiki distribution for creating and sharing digital user guides, work instructions and best practices. Dokit SAS

AMP packages without MediaWiki

There are also AMP packages available that are not bundled with MediaWiki. If you go this route, you have to install MediaWiki and extensions as a separate step. Depending on your operating system, you would want a LAMP (for Linux), a WAMP (for Windows), a SAMP (for Solaris), or a FAMP (for FreeBSD).

One AMP package that has worked well is XAMPP. See Manual:Installing MediaWiki on XAMPP. The current version of XAMPP uses PHP 5.4.27.

Another AMP package is BitNami LAMPStack. For downloads and a step-by-step tutorial, see MediaWiki with BitNami.

Another WAMP package is Uniform Server. See Manual:Installation on Uniform Server (Windows).
