MediaWiki on the Collaboration Tools Installer retiring

December 17, 2014

University IT no longer supports installs and upgrades for MediaWiki through the Collaboration Tools Installer and Upgrader. You may continue to run your existing site; however, you are responsible for keeping MediaWiki software for that site up-to-date (see for more information) and adjusting settings to make it compatible with Stanford's web infrastructure.

As an alternative, University IT offers Confluence, a more supported wiki environment, which allows any authorized user to add, delete, or revise content via a web browser. Confluence is available to Stanford users only.

If you are using MediaWiki as the foundation for a website, a better Stanford option is Stanford Sites, a self-service tool for building and managing websites. Stanford Sites is available to current faculty, staff, and students free of charge.
