#131374 Hosted Apps: MediaWiki migration issue: freemind

Christian Foltin

Dear SF-Team,

we want to migrate our self-made media wiki installation at
into the hosted app under

But, although I read your docs (ok, only partially ;) ), I didn't understand how to move the complete set of pages into the hosted app. I've found only some short information about changing users names, but this is only a small part of the migration problem, isn't it?

Moreover, we have some special settings. The most important is the ability to show mind maps in our wiki using our own flash player (for example, see
). Is it possible to enable such a mediawiki extension (The extension is described here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FreeMind\), too?

Thanks for your support,

FreeMind's Director.

Our changes involved:
* Spam configuration filter in LocalSettings.php $wgSpamRegex = "/[^\x{0020}-\x{3dff}s]|display:none|freeiconsweb|overflow:\s*auto;\s*height:\s*[0-4]px;/iu";

* Adapted version of extension GeSHiHighlight for highlighting groovy scripts: include("extensions/GeSHiHighlight.php");

* FreeMind extension: For installing extensions you need write access to the directory where
wiki is installed. Copy the extension into directory wiki/extensions and
make changes in LocalSettings.php:

$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png', 'gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'mm' );
