MediaWiki Access Control - Read/Edit/Create accounts


#1

When choosing “Simple installation” of MediaWiki, I can later control who can read and edit pages, and create accounts in the wiki through the web panel.

I just installed MediaWiki using the “Custom Installation” and would like to effectively set up the same degree of access control on my wiki.

Thanks

Here’s the relevant MediaWiki documentation:

The permissions settings on simple installs just affect the value of $wgGroupPermissions for your wiki.
