It uses the production version of the biowikifarm mediawiki, i.e. the one used also on this meta,, etc. Except for the media and cache folders in /var/www/v-ispi/w/, most folders thus link to /usr/share/mediawiki. No changes should be made in /usr/share/mediawiki/phase3, with the exception of adding softlinks inside /usr/share/mediawiki/phase3/extensions. These softlinks point mostly to /usr/share/mediawiki/extensions. Compare existing extension softlinks for examples.

Work on this wiki started on Dec. 13th 2009. We have moved to this server because of poor performance and restrictions in the size of the database on our old server. The first impression is that performance is significantly improved here.


None so far.
