MAMP PRO offers you the simple possibility to install a current MediaWiki directly from the app for a host.

MediaWiki is a free software open source wiki package written in PHP, originally for use on Wikipedia. It is now also used by several other projects of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and by many other wikis. More information about MediaWiki can be found here. You can find more information about your MediaWiki installation in the MediaWiki documentation.

  1. On this screen you will enter all information required for the installation of MediaWiki.

    • Name of Wiki:
      Enter the name of your Wiki here.

    • E-mail address:
