?>The PHP closing tag "?>" is never required at the end of a pure-code php file, and mediawiki developers actively remove it, as it often causes problems related to trailing whitespace, and "headers already sent" errors.

anglebracketsIn PHP prior to version 5.2.9 there is an incompatibility with libxml2 versions 2.7.0?2.7.2. This causes the very noticable issue of angle brackets, < and >, being stripped on Export and Import from Mediawiki. Upgrading PHP to at least 5.2.9 and libxml2 to 2.7.3 OR downgrading libxml2 to a version prior to the 2.7.x series fixes this issue. More info: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=45996

cssTo change styles for your wiki, go to one of the MediaWiki:xxx.css wiki page (NOT a file) and put your custom styles there (sysop/admin rights required). MediaWiki:Common.css is for all skins and should be used for content styles. MediaWiki:Vector.css is for the Vector skin (default), etc. For more information, see !skins and https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Interface/CSS
csshideheaderTo hide the header on the main page, you need to add this CSS to the wiki page [[MediaWiki:Common.css]]: "body.page-Main_Page h1.firstHeading { display: none; }". If your main page's title is not "Main Page", you'll need to change it accordingly (look at the class on the <body> tag in the HTML source).

filesizeThe size of files you can upload to PHP is limited by the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size directives in your php.ini. Your web server may also have a configurable limit (LimitRequestBody in apache, client_max_body_size in nginx, etc). MediaWiki itself only limits direct (copy) uploads from a URL, this is configured via $wgMaxUploadSize.

fileurlTo allow local file:///xxx links, use $wgUrlProtocols[] = "file:"; See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:%24wgUrlProtocols for more information. Beware that several browsers do not allow file urls on pages loaded via http. Also note that most browsers do not support "remote file" urls like file://server/share

For more technical details about image uploads, see <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_Administration> and <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuring_file_uploads>. Note that uploads are disabled per default (see !uploads).
img_authBy default, all uploaded files are accessible directly by the web server. If you wish to allow access only to authorized users within the MediaWiki framework, the actual directory must be protected from direct access and MediaWiki Authorization must be invoked when an file access occurs by executing a script when any url containing that directory is requested. See <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_Authorization>.
importTo import pages a few pages, use Special:Import - you can also import pages directly from another wiki (see !importsources).

phpMediaWiki is written in PHP. PHP's website is http://php.net. For a full list of MediaWiki requirements, see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installation_requirements
php4Latest version for PHP4: 1.6.x. <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download>
php531PHP 5.3.1 contains a regression with reference parameters when used with __call() and should not be used with MediaWiki (upgrade to >= 5.3.3). See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T23793
phpinfocreate a file called info.php in your wiki's installation directory. It should have the following content: <?php phpinfo(); ?>; Visit it with your browser to see information about your php installation. If it doesn't work, check file permissions. Remove the file when done, it makes life easier for attackers.

transclusionTransclusion is a general MediaWiki term for including things into a page using double-brace "{{}}" markup. This can be things like templates, pages in other namespaces, variables, output of parser functions, some Special pages, interwiki pages, and such. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Transclusion for an overview.

useragentThe User-Agent string tells the server about your browser (or HTTP library). Wikimedia servers require a User-Agent string to be sent. See http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User-Agent_policy for details.
userapprovalTo require approval before accounts can edit, see <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmAccount>. Alternatively, remove edit rights from all users, and create a new user group like with edit rights; a bureaucrat can then add users to the group. See <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Assigning_permissions>

Then they start a spam service on your server advertising the kiddy porn to twenty million email addresses, daily. Then your home gets raided, you get fired and your wife leaves you.
