Spent a few hours today trying to make a “wiki farm” on Debian using MediaWiki. I already had six wikis using separate code directories on the one server, so when I needed to update them all it was a real pain. Having to create a seventh standalone wiki today pushed me to doing this. I documented it here. Not sure if my notes will be helpful to others but I hope so… Took a little longer as I wanted to be to lock down each wiki with htpasswd (I know you can lock down parts of MoinMoin, but MediaWiki isn’t so partitionable).
