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,

Here are the MediaWiki Users forums. And this fellow found all installs of the code.

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). Dependent on software version, there is a number called "Content pages" or sometimes "pages that are probably legitimate content pages" -- use that lower number. 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.
MediaWiki wikiFactor information
go to the /Special:PopularPages page of the wiki – http://YourWikiURL.org/Special:PopularPages
