What are MediaWiki Upgrades?

Keeping your MediaWiki installation up-to-date brings various benefits, but can be a challenge. We offer MediaWiki upgrade services, so you can save yourself or your staff the headaches of dealing with MediaWiki extension compatibility, Composer, Docker, and dozens of other involved technologies.

Analysis. We conduct a thorough analysis of your wiki and outline both the benefits and costs of upgrading. We assess risks and create an upgrade strategy.

Risk-Mitigation. We ensure that backups and a rollback plan are in place to prevent potential data loss. If possible, we do a dry-run of the upgrade on a staging environment.

We recommend updating your MediaWiki before it reaches end-of-life.

MediaWiki Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are released every two years and come with three years of support. Thus, you must upgrade every two years to stay up-to-date. For maximum stability, we recommend waiting a few months after the release of a new MediaWiki LTS before you upgrade. Furthermore, we recommend installing security updates more frequently, especially for mission-critical wikis or those containing confidential information.

Standard MediaWiki versions are released twice a year. They come with only one year of official support. If you cannot frequently update your wiki, we strongly recommend sticking to LTS versions instead.

You can check the version of your MediaWiki against the latest releases on the official MediaWiki website or contact us for a comprehensive analysis. You can find the version of your wiki on the Special:Version page and the latest MediaWiki version on the version lifecycle page.

If you use our MediaWiki hosting services, we keep your wiki updated automatically.

We prioritize data integrity by implementing a risk mitigation strategy, including thorough backups and dry-runs in a staging environment.
The timeline can vary based on your wiki’s complexity and the upgrade scope. We can provide an estimated timeline after an initial consultation.
Yes, upgrades can be a great time to implement customizations. We can discuss your specific needs during the consultation phase.
We strive to minimize downtime. Any necessary outages will be planned and communicated in advance to reduce impact on your users.
Absolutely, we provide post-upgrade support to ensure your MediaWiki runs smoothly and any potential issues are resolved quickly.
Simply contact us with the details of your current setup, and we’ll arrange a free discovery call to discuss your needs and our process.
