URLs and file paths

These will relatively rarely need to be set manually, unless you are splitting style sheets or images outside the main document root.

In this section, a "path" is usually a host-relative URL, i.e. a URL without the host part, that starts with a slash. In most cases a full URL is also acceptable. A "directory" is a local file path.

In both paths and directories, trailing slashes should not be included.

Default values for MediaWiki configuration settings.

NEVER EDIT THIS FILE

To customize your installation, edit "LocalSettings.php". If you make changes here, they will be lost on next upgrade of MediaWiki!

In this file, variables whose default values depend on other variables are set to false. The actual default value of these variables will only be set in Setup.php, taking into account any custom settings performed in LocalSettings.php.

Documentation is in the source and on: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuration_settings

◆ $wgActionPaths

$wgActionPaths = []

To set 'pretty' URL paths for actions other than plain page views, add to this array.

Example:

Definition at line 371 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgActions

$wgActions
Initial value:
= [
'credits' => true

Array of allowed values for the "title=foo&action=<action>" parameter.

Syntax is: 'foo' => 'ClassName' Load the specified class which subclasses Action 'foo' => true Load the class FooAction which subclasses Action If something is specified in the getActionOverrides() of the relevant Page object it will be used instead of the default class. 'foo' => false The action is disabled; show an error message Unsetting core actions will probably cause things to complain loudly.

◆ $wgActiveUserDays

$wgActiveUserDays = 30

How many days user must be idle before he is considered inactive.

Will affect the number shown on Special:Statistics, Special:ActiveUsers, and the {{NUMBEROFACTIVEUSERS}} magic word in wikitext. You might want to leave this as the default value, to provide comparable numbers between different wikis.

◆ $wgAdaptiveMessageCache

$wgAdaptiveMessageCache = false

Instead of caching everything, only cache those messages which have been customised in the site content language.

This means that MediaWiki:Foo/ja is ignored if MediaWiki:Foo doesn't exist. This option is probably only useful for translatewiki.net.

◆ $wgAddGroups

$wgAddGroups = []

$wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups can be used to give finer control over who can assign which groups at Special:Userrights.

Example:
Bureaucrats can add any group:
$wgAddGroups['bureaucrat'] = true;
Bureaucrats can only remove bots and sysops:
$wgRemoveGroups['bureaucrat'] = [ 'bot', 'sysop' ];
Sysops can make bots:
$wgAddGroups['sysop'] = [ 'bot' ];
Sysops can disable other sysops in an emergency, and disable bots:
$wgRemoveGroups['sysop'] = [ 'sysop', 'bot' ];

Referenced by MWNamespace\isMovable().

◆ $wgAllowImageTag

$wgAllowImageTag = false

A different approach to the above: simply allow the "<img>" tag to be used.

This allows you to specify alt text and other attributes, copy-paste HTML to your wiki more easily, etc. However, allowing external images in any manner will allow anyone with editing rights to snoop on your visitors' IP addresses and so forth, if they wanted to, by inserting links to images on sites they control.

Referenced by UpdateMediaWiki\execute().

◆ $wgAllowSecuritySensitiveOperationIfCannotReauthenticate

int [] bool [] $wgAllowSecuritySensitiveOperationIfCannotReauthenticate
Initial value:
= [
'default' => true

Whether to allow security-sensitive operations when re-authentication is not possible.

If AuthManager::canAuthenticateNow() is false (e.g. the current SessionProvider is not able to change users, such as when OAuth is in use), AuthManager::securitySensitiveOperationStatus() cannot sensibly return SEC_REAUTH. Setting an operation true here will have it return SEC_OK in that case, while setting it false will have it return SEC_FAIL.

The key 'default' is used if a requested operation isn't defined in the array.

Since
1.27
See also
$wgReauthenticateTime operation => boolean. A 'default' key must always be provided.

Definition at line 4657 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAllowSiteCSSOnRestrictedPages

$wgAllowSiteCSSOnRestrictedPages = false

Whether to allow site-wide CSS (MediaWiki:Common.css and friends) on restricted pages like Special:UserLogin or Special:Preferences where JavaScript is disabled for security reasons.

As it is possible to execute JavaScript through CSS, setting this to true opens up a potential security hole. Some sites may "skin" their wiki by using site-wide CSS, causing restricted pages to look unstyled and different from the rest of the site.

Since
1.25

◆ $wgAllowTitlesInSVG

$wgAllowTitlesInSVG = false

Disallow <title> element in SVG files.

MediaWiki will reject HTMLesque tags in uploaded files due to idiotic browsers which can not perform basic stuff like MIME detection and which are vulnerable to further idiots uploading crap files as images.

When this directive is on, "<title>" will be allowed in files with an "image/svg+xml" MIME type. You should leave this disabled if your web server is misconfigured and doesn't send appropriate MIME types for SVG images.

◆ $wgAllowUserCss

$wgAllowUserCss = false

Definition at line 3353 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAllowUserCssPrefs

$wgAllowUserCssPrefs = true

Allow style-related user-preferences?

This controls whether the editfont and underline preferences are availabe to users.

◆ $wgAmericanDates

$wgAmericanDates = false

◆ $wgAntivirus

$wgAntivirus = null

Internal name of virus scanner.

This serves as a key to the $wgAntivirusSetup array. Set this to NULL to disable virus scanning. If not null, every file uploaded will be scanned for viruses.

Definition at line 1332 of file DefaultSettings.php.

Referenced by UploadBase\detectVirus().

◆ $wgAntivirusRequired

$wgAntivirusRequired = true

Determines if a failed virus scan (AV_SCAN_FAILED) will cause the file to be rejected.

Definition at line 1386 of file DefaultSettings.php.

Referenced by UploadBase\detectVirus().

◆ $wgAntivirusSetup

$wgAntivirusSetup
Initial value:
= [
# setup for clamav
'clamav' => [
'command' => 'clamscan --no-summary '

Configuration for different virus scanners.

This an associative array of associative arrays. It contains one setup array per known scanner type. The entry is selected by $wgAntivirus, i.e. valid values for $wgAntivirus are the keys defined in this array.

The configuration array for each scanner contains the following keys: "command", "codemap", "messagepattern":

"command" is the full command to call the virus scanner - f will be replaced with the name of the file to scan. If not present, the filename will be appended to the command. Note that this must be overwritten if the scanner is not in the system path; in that case, please set $wgAntivirusSetup[$wgAntivirus]['command'] to the desired command with full path.

"codemap" is a mapping of exit code to return codes of the detectVirus function in SpecialUpload.

  • An exit code mapped to AV_SCAN_FAILED causes the function to consider the scan to be failed. This will pass the file if $wgAntivirusRequired is not set.
  • An exit code mapped to AV_SCAN_ABORTED causes the function to consider the file to have an unsupported format, which is probably immune to viruses. This causes the file to pass.
  • An exit code mapped to AV_NO_VIRUS will cause the file to pass, meaning no virus was found.
  • All other codes (like AV_VIRUS_FOUND) will cause the function to report a virus.
  • You may use "*" as a key in the array to catch all exit codes not mapped otherwise.

"messagepattern" is a perl regular expression to extract the meaningful part of the scanners output. The relevant part should be matched as group one (\1). If not defined or the pattern does not match, the full message is shown to the user.

◆ $wgAPICacheHelpTimeout

$wgAPICacheHelpTimeout = 60 * 60

Set the timeout for the API help text cache.

If set to 0, caching disabled

Definition at line 8206 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIFormatModules

$wgAPIFormatModules = []

API format module extensions.

Associative array mapping format module name to module specs (see $wgAPIModules). Extension modules may override the core modules.

See ApiMain::$Formats for a list of the core format modules.

Definition at line 8143 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgApiFrameOptions

$wgApiFrameOptions = 'DENY'

Disallow framing of API pages directly, by setting the X-Frame-Options header.

Since the API returns CSRF tokens, allowing the results to be framed can compromise your user's account security. Options are:

  • 'DENY': Do not allow framing. This is recommended for most wikis.
  • 'SAMEORIGIN': Allow framing by pages on the same domain.
  • false: Allow all framing. Note: $wgBreakFrames will override this for human formatted API output.

Definition at line 3410 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIListModules

$wgAPIListModules = []

API Query list module extensions.

Associative array mapping list module name to module specs (see $wgAPIModules). Extension modules may override the core modules.

See ApiQuery::$QueryListModules for a list of the core list modules.

Definition at line 8170 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIMaxDBRows

$wgAPIMaxDBRows = 5000

Maximum amount of rows to scan in a DB query in the API The default value is generally fine.

Definition at line 8176 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIMaxLagThreshold

$wgAPIMaxLagThreshold = 7

Maximum amount of DB lag on a majority of DB replica DBs to tolerate before forcing bots to retry any write requests via API errors.

This should be lower than the 'max lag' value in $wgLBFactoryConf.

Definition at line 8195 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIMaxResultSize

$wgAPIMaxResultSize = 8388608

Warning
Do not set this lower than $wgMaxArticleSize*1024

Referenced by ApiQuerySiteinfoTest\testContinuation().

◆ $wgAPIMaxUncachedDiffs

$wgAPIMaxUncachedDiffs = 1

The maximum number of uncached diffs that can be retrieved in one API request.

Set this to 0 to disable API diffs altogether

Definition at line 8188 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIMetaModules

$wgAPIMetaModules = []

API Query meta module extensions.

Associative array mapping meta module name to module specs (see $wgAPIModules). Extension modules may override the core modules.

See ApiQuery::$QueryMetaModules for a list of the core meta modules.

Definition at line 8152 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgAPIModules

$wgAPIModules = []

API module extensions.

Associative array mapping module name to modules specs; Each module spec is an associative array containing at least the 'class' key for the module's class, and optionally a 'factory' key for the factory function to use for the module.

That factory function will be called with two parameters, the parent module (an instance of ApiBase, usually ApiMain) and the name the module was registered under. The return value must be an instance of the class given in the 'class' field.

For backward compatibility, the module spec may also be a simple string containing the module's class name. In that case, the class' constructor will be called with the parent module and module name as parameters, as described above.

Examples for registering API modules:

$wgAPIModules['foo'] = 'ApiFoo';
$wgAPIModules['bar'] = [
'class' => ApiBar::class,
'factory' => function( $main, $name ) { ... }
];
$wgAPIModules['xyzzy'] = [

const APCOND_EDITCOUNT
Definition: Defines.php:205

Array containing the conditions of automatic promotion of a user to specific groups.

The basic syntax for $wgAutopromote is:

$wgAutopromote = array(
    'groupname' => cond,
    'group2' => cond2,
);

A cond may be:

  • a single condition without arguments: Note that Autopromote wraps a single non-array value into an array e.g. APCOND_EMAILCONFIRMED OR array( APCOND_EMAILCONFIRMED )
  • a single condition with arguments: e.g. array( APCOND_EDITCOUNT, 100 )
  • a set of conditions: e.g. `array( 'operand', cond1, cond2, ... )`

When constructing a set of conditions, the following conditions are available:

  • & (AND): promote if user matches ALL conditions
  • | (OR): promote if user matches ANY condition
  • ^ (XOR): promote if user matches ONLY ONE OF THE CONDITIONS
  • ! (NOT): promote if user matces NO condition
  • array( APCOND_EMAILCONFIRMED ): true if user has a confirmed e-mail
  • array( APCOND_EDITCOUNT, number of edits ): true if user has the at least the number of edits as the passed parameter
  • array( APCOND_AGE, seconds since registration ): true if the length of time since the user created his/her account is at least the same length of time as the passed parameter
  • array( APCOND_AGE_FROM_EDIT, seconds since first edit ): true if the length of time since the user made his/her first edit is at least the same length of time as the passed parameter
  • array( APCOND_INGROUPS, group1, group2, ... ): true if the user is a member of each of the passed groups
  • array( APCOND_ISIP, ip ): true if the user has the passed IP address
  • array( APCOND_IPINRANGE, range ): true if the user has an IP address in the range of the passed parameter
  • array( APCOND_BLOCKED ): true if the user is blocked
  • array( APCOND_ISBOT ): true if the user is a bot
  • similar constructs can be defined by extensions

The sets of conditions are evaluated recursively, so you can use nested sets of conditions linked by operands.

Note that if $wgEmailAuthentication is disabled, APCOND_EMAILCONFIRMED will be true for any user who has provided an e-mail address.

Initial value:

Limits on the possible sizes of range blocks.

CIDR notation is hard to understand, it's easy to mistakenly assume that a /1 is a small range and a /31 is a large range. For IPv4, setting a limit of half the number of bits avoids such errors, and allows entire ISPs to be blocked using a small number of range blocks.

For IPv6, RFC 3177 recommends that a /48 be allocated to every residential customer, so range blocks larger than /64 (half the number of bits) will plainly be required. RFC 4692 implies that a very large ISP may be allocated a /19 if a generous HD-Ratio of 0.8 is used, so we will use that as our limit. As of 2012, blocking the whole world would require a /4 range.

$wgCategoryCollation = 'uppercase'

Specify how category names should be sorted, when listed on a category page.

A sorting scheme is also known as a collation.

  • identity: Does no conversion. Sorts by binary value of the string.
  • uca-default: Provides access to the Unicode Collation Algorithm with the default element table. This is a compromise collation which sorts all languages in a mediocre way. However, it is better than "uppercase".

To use the uca-default collation, you must have PHP's intl extension installed. See https://secure.php.net/manual/en/intl.setup.php . The details of the resulting collation will depend on the version of ICU installed on the server.

After you change this, you must run maintenance/updateCollation.php to fix the sort keys in the database.

Extensions can define there own collations by subclassing Collation and using the Collation::factory hook.

This requires delayed job support. This should be safely higher than the 'max lag' value in $wgLBFactoryConf, so that replica DB lag does not cause page to be stuck in stales states in CDN.

This also fixes race conditions in two-tiered CDN setups (e.g. cdn2 => cdn1 => MediaWiki). If a purge for a URL reaches cdn2 before cdn1 and a request reaches cdn2 for that URL, it will populate the response from the stale cdn1 value. When cdn1 gets the purge, cdn2 will still be stale. If the rebound purge delay is safely higher than the time to relay a purge to all nodes, then the rebound puge will clear cdn2 after cdn1 was cleared.

This cookie will contain an authentication code if $wgSecretKey is set, or otherwise will just be the block ID (in which case there is a possibility of an attacker discovering the names of revdeleted users, so it is best to use this in conjunction with $wgSecretKey being set).

$wgDBOracleDRCP = false

Set true to enable Oracle DCRP (supported from 11gR1 onward)

To use this feature set to true and use a datasource defined as POOLED (i.e. in tnsnames definition set server=pooled in connect_data block).

Starting from 11gR1 you can use DCRP (Database Resident Connection Pool) that maintains established sessions and reuses them on new connections.

Not completely tested, but it should fall back on normal connection in case the pool is full or the datasource is not configured as pooled. And the other way around; using oci_pconnect on a non pooled datasource should produce a normal connection.

When it comes to frequent shortlived DB connections like with MW Oracle tends to s***. The problem is the driver connects to the database reasonably fast, but establishing a session takes time and resources. MW does not rely on session state (as it does not use features such as package variables) so establishing a valid session is in this case an unwanted overhead that just slows things down.

Database load balancer This is a two-dimensional array, an array of server info structures Fields are:

  • host: Host name
  • dbname: Default database name
  • user: DB user
  • password: DB password
  • type: DB type
  • driver: DB driver (when there are multiple drivers)
  • load: Ratio of DB_REPLICA load, must be >=0, the sum of all loads must be >0. If this is zero for any given server, no normal query traffic will be sent to it. It will be excluded from lag checks in maintenance scripts. The only way it can receive traffic is if groupLoads is used.
  • groupLoads: array of load ratios, the key is the query group name. A query may belong to several groups, the most specific group defined here is used.
  • flags: bit field
    • DBO_DEFAULT – turns on DBO_TRX only if "cliMode" is off (recommended)
    • DBO_DEBUG – equivalent of $wgDebugDumpSql
    • DBO_TRX – wrap entire request in a transaction
    • DBO_NOBUFFER – turn off buffering (not useful in LocalSettings.php)
    • DBO_PERSISTENT – enables persistent database connections
    • DBO_SSL – uses SSL/TLS encryption in database connections, if available
    • DBO_COMPRESS – uses internal compression in database connections, if available
  • max lag: (optional) Maximum replication lag before a replica DB goes out of rotation
  • is static: (optional) Set to true if the dataset is static and no replication is used.
  • cliMode: (optional) Connection handles will not assume that requests are short-lived nor that INSERT..SELECT can be rewritten into a buffered SELECT and INSERT. [Default: uses value of $wgCommandLineMode]

These and any other user-defined properties will be assigned to the mLBInfo member variable of the Database object.

Leave at false to use the single-server variables above. If you set this variable, the single-server variables will generally be ignored (except perhaps in some command-line scripts).

The first server listed in this array (with key 0) will be the master. The rest of the servers will be replica DBs. To prevent writes to your replica DBs due to accidental misconfiguration or MediaWiki bugs, set read_only=1 on all your replica DBs in my.cnf. You can set read_only mode at runtime using:

SET @@read_only=1;

Since the effect of writing to a replica DB is so damaging and difficult to clean up, we at Wikimedia set read_only=1 in my.cnf on all our DB servers, even our masters, and then set read_only=0 on masters at runtime.

◆ $wgEditPageFrameOptions

$wgEditPageFrameOptions = 'DENY'

The X-Frame-Options header to send on pages sensitive to clickjacking attacks, such as edit pages.

This prevents those pages from being displayed in a frame or iframe. The options are:

  • 'DENY': Do not allow framing. This is recommended for most wikis.
  • 'SAMEORIGIN': Allow framing by pages on the same domain. This can be used to allow framing within a trusted domain. This is insecure if there is a page on the same domain which allows framing of arbitrary URLs.
  • false: Allow all framing. This opens up the wiki to XSS attacks and thus full compromise of local user accounts. Private wikis behind a corporate firewall are especially vulnerable. This is not recommended.

For extra safety, set $wgBreakFrames = true, to prevent framing on all pages, not just edit pages.

Definition: maintenance.txt:52

Mapping of event channels (or channel categories) to EventRelayer configuration.

By setting up a PubSub system (like Kafka) and enabling a corresponding EventRelayer class that uses it, MediaWiki can broadcast events to all subscribers. Certain features like WAN cache purging and CDN cache purging will emit events to this system. Appropriate listers can subscribe to the channel and take actions based on the events. For example, a local daemon can run on each CDN cache node and perfom local purges based on the URL purge channel events.

Some extensions may want to use "channel categories" so that different channels can also share the same custom relayer instance (e.g. when it's likely to be overriden). They can use EventRelayerGroup::getRelayer() based on the category but call notify() on various different actual channels. One reason for this would be that some system have very different performance vs durability needs, so one system (e.g. Kafka) may not be suitable for all uses.

The 'default' key is for all channels (or channel categories) without an explicit entry here.

The extensions are listed on Special:Version. This page also looks for a file named COPYING or LICENSE (optional .txt extension) and provides a link to view said file. When the 'license-name' key is specified, this file is interpreted as wikitext.

  • $type: One of 'specialpage', 'parserhook', 'variable', 'media', 'antispam', 'skin', 'api', or 'other', or any additional types as specified through the ExtensionTypes hook as used in SpecialVersion::getExtensionTypes().
  • name: Name of extension as an inline string instead of localizable message. Do not omit this even if 'namemsg' is provided, as it is used to override the path Special:Version uses to find extension's license info, and is required for backwards-compatibility with MediaWiki 1.23 and older.

$wgExtensionMessagesFiles = []

Extension messages files.

Associative array mapping extension name to the filename where messages can be found. The file should contain variable assignments. Any of the variables present in languages/messages/MessagesEn.php may be defined, but $messages is the most common.

Variables defined in extensions will override conflicting variables defined in the core.

Since MediaWiki 1.23, use of this variable to define messages is discouraged; instead, store messages in JSON format and use $wgMessagesDirs. For setting other variables than $messages, $wgExtensionMessagesFiles should still be used. Use a DIFFERENT key because any entry having a key that also exists in $wgMessagesDirs will be ignored.

Extensions using the JSON message format can preserve backward compatibility with earlier versions of MediaWiki by using a compatibility shim, such as one generated by the generateJsonI18n.php maintenance script, listing it under the SAME key as for the $wgMessagesDirs entry.

$wgExtensionMessagesFiles['ConfirmEdit'] = __DIR__.'/ConfirmEdit.i18n.php';

Warning
Once you delete a namespace, the pages in that namespace will no longer be accessible. If you rename it, then you can access them through the new namespace name.

Custom namespaces should start at 100 to avoid conflicting with standard namespaces, and should always follow the even/odd main/talk pattern.

A cached version will continue to be served out even if changes are made, until this many seconds runs out since the last render.

If set to 0, feed caching is disabled. Use this for debugging only; feed generation can be pretty slow with diffs.

◆ $wgFileBackends

$wgFileBackends = []

File backend structure configuration.

This is an array of file backend configuration arrays. Each backend configuration has the following parameters:

  • 'name' : A unique name for the backend
  • 'class' : The file backend class to use
  • 'wikiId' : A unique string that identifies the wiki (container prefix)
  • 'lockManager' : The name of a lock manager (see $wgLockManagers)

See FileBackend::__construct() for more details. Additional parameters are specific to the file backend class used. These settings should be global to all wikis when possible.

FileBackendMultiWrite::__construct() is augmented with a 'template' option that can be used in any of the values of the 'backends' array. Its value is the name of another backend in $wgFileBackends. When set, it pre-fills the array with all of the configuration of the named backend. Explicitly set values in the array take precedence.

There are two particularly important aspects about each backend:

  • a) Whether it is fully qualified or wiki-relative. By default, the paths of files are relative to the current wiki, which works via prefixing them with the current wiki ID when accessed. Setting 'wikiId' forces the backend to be fully qualified by prefixing all paths with the specified value instead. This can be useful if multiple wikis need to share the same data. Note that 'name' is not part of any prefix and thus should not be relied upon for namespacing.
  • b) Whether it is only defined for some wikis or is defined on all wikis in the wiki farm. Defining a backend globally is useful if multiple wikis need to share the same data. One should be aware of these aspects when configuring a backend for use with any basic feature or plugin. For example, suppose an extension stores data for different wikis in different directories and sometimes needs to access data from a foreign wiki's directory in order to render a page on given wiki. The extension would need a fully qualified backend that is defined on all wikis in the wiki farm.

◆ $wgFooterIcons

$wgFooterIcons
Initial value:
= [
"copyright" => [
"copyright" => []

Abstract list of footer icons for skins in place of old copyrightico and poweredbyico code You can add new icons to the built in copyright or poweredby, or you can create a new block.

Though note that you may need to add some custom css to get good styling of new blocks in monobook. vector and modern should work without any special css.

$wgFooterIcons itself is a key/value array. The key is the name of a block that the icons will be wrapped in. The final id varies by skin; Monobook and Vector will turn poweredby into f-poweredbyico while Modern turns it into mw_poweredby. The value is either key/value array of icons or a string. In the key/value array the key may or may not be used by the skin but it can be used to find the icon and unset it or change the icon if needed. This is useful for disabling icons that are set by extensions. The value should be either a string or an array. If it is a string it will be output directly as html, however some skins may choose to ignore it. An array is the preferred format for the icon, the following keys are used:

  • src: An absolute url to the image to use for the icon, this is recommended but not required, however some skins will ignore icons without an image
  • srcset: optional additional-resolution images; see HTML5 specs
  • url: The url to use in the a element around the text or icon, if not set an a element will not be outputted
  • alt: This is the text form of the icon, it will be displayed without an image in skins like Modern or if src is not set, and will otherwise be used as the alt="" for the image. This key is required.
  • width and height: If the icon specified by src is not of the standard size you can specify the size of image to use with these keys. Otherwise they will default to the standard 88x31.

◆ $wgForceUIMsgAsContentMsg

$wgForceUIMsgAsContentMsg = []

When translating messages with wfMessage(), it is not always clear what should be considered UI messages and what should be content messages.

For example, for the English Wikipedia, there should be only one 'mainpage', so when getting the link for 'mainpage', we should treat it as site content and call ->inContentLanguage()->text(), but for rendering the text of the link, we call ->text(). The code behaves this way by default. However, sites like the Wikimedia Commons do offer different versions of 'mainpage' and the like for different languages. This array provides a way to override the default behavior.

Example:
To allow language-specific main page and community portal:
$wgForceUIMsgAsContentMsg = [ 'mainpage', 'portal-url' ];

◆ $wgForeignFileRepos

Example: $wgForeignUploadTargets = [ 'shared' ];

Definition at line 665 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgFragmentMode

$wgFragmentMode = [ 'legacy', 'html5' ]

How should section IDs be encoded? This array can contain 1 or 2 elements, each of them can be one of:

  • 'html5' is modern HTML5 style encoding with minimal escaping. Displays Unicode characters in most browsers' address bars.
  • 'legacy' is old MediaWiki-style encoding, e.g. 啤酒 turns into .E5.95.A4.E9.85.92

The first element of this array specifies the primary mode of escaping IDs. This is what users will see when they e.g. follow an [[#internal link]] to a section of a page.

The optional second element defines a fallback mode, useful for migrations. If present, it will direct MediaWiki to add empty s to every section with its id attribute set to fallback encoded title so that links using the previous encoding would still work.

Example: you want to migrate your wiki from 'legacy' to 'html5'

On the first step, set this variable to [ 'legacy', 'html5' ]. After a while, when all caches (parser, HTTP, etc.) contain only pages generated with this setting, flip the value to [ 'html5', 'legacy' ]. This will result in all internal links being generated in the new encoding while old links (both external and cached internal) will still work. After a long time, you might want to ditch backwards compatibility and set it to [ 'html5' ]. After all, pages get edited, breaking incoming links no matter which fragment mode is used.

◆ $wgGroupPermissions

$wgGroupPermissions = []

Permission keys given to users in each group.

This is an array where the keys are all groups and each value is an array of the format (right => boolean).

The second format is used to support per-namespace permissions. Note that this feature does not fully work for all permission types.

All users are implicitly in the '*' group including anonymous visitors; logged-in users are all implicitly in the 'user' group. These will be combined with the permissions of all groups that a given user is listed in in the user_groups table.

Note: Don't set $wgGroupPermissions = []; unless you know what you're doing! This will wipe all permissions, and may mean that your users are unable to perform certain essential tasks or access new functionality when new permissions are introduced and default grants established.

Functionality to make pages inaccessible has not been extensively tested for security. Use at your own risk!

This replaces $wgWhitelistAccount and $wgWhitelistEdit

◆ $wgGroupsAddToSelf

$wgGroupsAddToSelf = []

A map of group names that the user is in, to group names that those users are allowed to add or revoke.

Setting the list of groups to add or revoke to true is equivalent to "any group".

Example:
To allow sysops to add themselves to the "bot" group:
$wgGroupsAddToSelf = [ 'sysop' => [ 'bot' ] ];
Example:
Implicit groups may be used for the source group, for instance: This allows users in the '*' group (i.e. any user) to remove themselves from any group that they happen to be in.

Definition at line 609 of file DefaultSettings.php.

◆ $wgHashedUploadDirectory

$wgHashedUploadDirectory = true

Set this to false if you do not want MediaWiki to divide your images directory into many subdirectories, for improved performance.

It's almost always good to leave this enabled. In previous versions of MediaWiki, some users set this to false to allow images to be added to the wiki by simply copying them into $wgUploadDirectory and then running maintenance/rebuildImages.php to register them in the database. This is no longer recommended, use maintenance/importImages.php instead.

Note
That this variable may be ignored if $wgLocalFileRepo is set.
Todo:
Deprecate the setting and ultimately remove it from Core.

◆ $wgHooks

$wgHooks = []

Global list of hooks.

The key is one of the events made available by MediaWiki, you can find a description for most of them in docs/hooks.txt. The array is used internally by Hook:run().

The value can be one of:

  • A function name:
    $wgHooks['event_name'][] = $function;
  • A function with some data:
    $wgHooks['event_name'][] = [ $function, $data ];
  • A an object method:
    $wgHooks['event_name'][] = [ $object, 'method' ];
  • A closure:
    $wgHooks['event_name'][] = function ( $hookParam ) {
    // Handler code goes here.
    };
Warning
You should always append to an event array or you will end up deleting a previous registered hook.
Hook handlers should be registered at file scope. Registering handlers after file scope can lead to unexpected results due to caching.

Definition at line 2901 of file DefaultSettings.php.

Referenced by CdnCacheUpdate\HTCPPurge().

◆ $wgHTCPRouting

$wgHTCPRouting = []

Routing configuration for HTCP multicast purging.

Add elements here to enable HTCP and determine which purges are sent where. If set to an empty array, HTCP is disabled.

Each key in this array is a regular expression to match against the purged URL, or an empty string to match all URLs. The purged URL is matched against the regexes in the order specified, and the first rule whose regex matches is used, all remaining rules will thus be ignored.

Example configuration to send purges for upload.wikimedia.org to one
multicast group and all other purges to another:
'|^https?://upload\\.wikimedia\\.org|' => [
'host' => '239.128.0.113',
'port' => 4827,
],
'' => [
'host' => '239.128.0.112',
'port' => 4827,
],
];

You can also pass an array of hosts to send purges too. This is useful when you have several multicast groups or unicast address that should receive a given purge. Multiple hosts support was introduced in MediaWiki 1.22.

Example of sending purges to multiple hosts:
'' => [
// Purges to text caches using multicast
[ 'host' => '239.128.0.114', 'port' => '4827' ],
// Purges to a hardcoded list of caches
[ 'host' => '10.88.66.1', 'port' => '4827' ],
[ 'host' => '10.88.66.2', 'port' => '4827' ],
[ 'host' => '10.88.66.3', 'port' => '4827' ],

Limit images on image description pages to a user-selectable limit.

In order to reduce disk usage, limits can only be selected from a list. The user preference is saved as an array offset in the database, by default the offset is set with $wgDefaultUserOptions['imagesize']. Make sure you change it if you alter the array (see T10858).

◆ $wgImgAuthUrlPathMap

$wgImgAuthUrlPathMap = []

Map of relative URL directories to match to internal mwstore:// base storage paths.

For img_auth.php requests, everything after "img_auth.php/" is checked to see if starts with any of the prefixes defined here. The prefixes should not overlap. The prefix that matches has a corresponding storage path, which the rest of the URL is assumed to be relative to. The file at that path (or a 404) is send to the client.

Example: $wgImgAuthUrlPathMap['/timeline/'] = 'mwstore://local-fs/timeline-render/'; The above maps ".../img_auth.php/timeline/X" to "mwstore://local-fs/timeline-render/". The name "local-fs" should correspond by name to an entry in $wgFileBackends.

◆ $wgImportSources

$wgImportSources = []

List of interwiki prefixes for wikis we'll accept as sources for Special:Import and API action=import.

Since complete page history can be imported, these should be 'trusted'.

This can either be a regular array, or an associative map specifying subprojects on the interwiki map of the target wiki, or a mix of the two, e.g.

'wikipedia' => [ 'cs', 'en', 'fr', 'zh' ],
'wikispecies',
'wikia' => [ 'animanga', 'brickipedia', 'desserts' ],
];

If you have a very complex import sources setup, you can lazy-load it using the ImportSources hook.
