I'm considering installing MediaWiki via the Dreamhost 1 Click install. However, I was going through the discussion archives here and came across a few posts which seemed to indicate potential services issues with using MediaWiki.
For instance, slow downs and 500 internal server errors, at least in cases of a significant number of visitors.
While my site doesn't have a large number of visitors at the moment I do have long term concerns with MediaWiki.
•What has been the experiences of others with MediaWiki in this regard?
•Also, will MediaWiki slow down the rest of my site? i.e.- the non-Wiki parts?
While my site doesn't have a large number of visitors at the moment I am wondering about future service issue concerns with MediaWiki.
