Miraheze is a not-for-profit MediaWiki wikifarm which was set up in August 2015. As of October 2022, they host over 5,500 wikis (including private ones). Its GitHub organisation can be found here; its Phabricator instance can be found here.

Miraheze regularly deletes "inactive" wikis (wikis with over 6 months of no activity) according to its Dormancy Policy unless wikis are granted an exemption.

Hosting

Based on their Finance page, they operate on a modest budget funded entirely by donations.[1] They operate their entire data center in-house with colocation services provided by ServerChoice As of October 2022, their whole cluster sits on approximately 158 CPU cores, 457GB RAM and ~7.2 TB of disk space[2]. They currently operate 42 servers for different uses.

The wikifarm hosts All The Tropes, Rosetta Code (wikipedia), along with various other big wikis.

Backups

Miraheze backups all their public wikis irregularly and publishes an XML dump of all of them on archive.org. Miraheze also makes their own backups of their services regularly to an offsite server.[3] In April 2019, Miraheze launched and deployed the DataDump extension on all its wikis, allowing wiki operators to generate and download dumps through the "Special:DataDump" page.[4] By default, only admins possess the "view-dump", "delete-dump", and "generate-dump" rights,[5] but wiki operators can extend these rights to other users through "Special:ManageWiki/permissions" if they so desire.

WikiTeam also managed to grab about 685 public wikis hosted on its cluster in September 2016[6] and in April 2017.[7]

A public list of all wikis is available.
