MediaWiki Follow | Open Source

The Bitnami MediaWiki Stack provides a one-click install solution for MediaWiki. Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own MediaWiki server in the cloud.

MediaWiki needs no introduction, but we’ll offer one anyway. MediaWiki is the engine behind Wikipedia, the behemoth website with millions of articles written by millions of users and translated into dozens of languages. Scale, internationalization, and flexibility have turned MediaWiki into one of the most popular open source wiki applications of all times. MediaWiki is also often the first choice for organizations who wish to bring the power of transparency and collaboration into their businesses to publish technical documentation, create knowledge bases, and build intranets.

Why use the Bitnami MediaWiki Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run MediaWiki in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami MediaWiki Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of MediaWiki and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of MediaWiki as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying MediaWiki or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami MediaWiki Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  1. Bitnami MediaWiki 5

    Awesome way to learn Wiki Administration

    by scott walter on

    I didn't know anything about how to administrate a Wiki, or even how to write a Wiki page. But I did know how to setup virtual machines, so the MediaWiki VM was a simple "download" -- "click start" -- "my own wiki". With the ability to start over in less than a minute with a fresh install after mixing up a setting, I was able to experiment with extensions without worry, and I was able to learn how to Administer a Wiki very quickly.

    For anyone thinking of setting up a wiki, it really is easy so give it a try and take a look at all the free extensions available that can expand the capabilities of the wiki immensely. The setup instructions on the bitnami website will get you up and running in no time.

    by Eric Burns on

    I've wanted a wiki-alike for writing notes and world development for literally years. With this machine, I have a localhost mediawiki that just works, without any trouble whatsoever. It's fantastic!

    1-Click localhost wiki -- fantastic!

    by Pieter Picasso on

    I am researching neuroscience, and needed a way of organising my research data.

    Now I have a wiki on my local machine, I just set my FireFox homepage to (can't post links)/localhost:8080/mediawiki/Main_Page.

    Perfect! Thanks!

  5. Bitnami MediaWiki 4

    A fast and easy way to share knowledge.

    by Hegle Melgar on

    With the module of Bitnami the installation is very easy and fast. In few minutes the application is on.

    Make a pages, the edition, and up new information is very easy and intuitive.

    In the Edition mode, the text format is something complicated for beginners users.
