This MediaWiki software is the wiki engine software package that runs this WikiIndex wiki site. Originally designed for Wikipedia (though not the original Wikipedia wiki engine – that was the Perl-based UseModWiki); MediaWiki is now one of the most active and largest wikis, it is also used extensively by other Wikimedia Foundation projects; along with many, many other independent wikis.
MediaWiki, written in PHP, is probably the most widely deployed wiki engine software. Some would argue that a wiki should be more simplistic, with fewer features; but MediaWikis' design avoids many of the clutter/feature–creep problems which can appear in other mature wiki engines, and its success speaks for itself. MediaWiki has spawned many clones, the most notable being Wikia. MediaWiki is a highly developed, feature-rich software that is released for free under version 2 of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL v2), and requires either MySQL 5.0.2+, PostgreSQL, or SQLite for datastorage,
- MediaWiki size information
- add /Special:Statistics at the end of the URL – eg.
http://YourWikiURL.org/Special:Statistics(non-English language versions will automatically convert this to actual language).

Ignore the (often much larger) "all pages in the wiki, including redirects" number. We can also add MediaWiki listings to the http://s23.org/wikistats/mediawikis_html.php system which tracks various wiki stats.
