Attention: Research Computing Documentation has Moved

Please use the new documentation url for all Research Computing documentation needs.

As a result of this move, we have deprecated use of this wiki for documentation. We are providing read-only access to the content to facilitate migration of bookmarks and to serve as an historical record. All content updates should be made at the new documentation site. The original wiki will not receive further updates.

Thank you,

The Research Computing Team


Mediawiki is a wiki software to enable communities to write documents collaboratively [1]. Mediawiki, written in PHP, is what powers Wikipedia and also UABgrid documentation. The markup for Mediawiki is similar to other open-source wiki software like Trac, ie., it has WYSIWIG editing capabilities to translate formatting instructions to corresponding HTML tags.


Help on editing wikis and formatting text etc., on mediawiki can be found here.


To setup and develop for mediawiki on UABgrid, please see the page here.
