Welcome to The Hive

The Hive https://www.colmena.biz is now secured with a Certbot certificate from Let's Encrypt and the Shorewall configuration utility for iptables.

Further ideas for enhancing security on the internet are SPF+DKIM+DMARC for email and X.509+DNSSEC+CAA‎ for general domain security.

Don't forget to visit our blog Mushroom.Global.

To Do

Change URL structure:

Directories "en" and "es" etc. can each be created on the web server with separate LocalSettings.php but the other files all symlinked from the base of a common wiki installation.

Probably not symlinks. I'm thinking that the whole directory structure needs to be replicated, with hard links for the files.

Needs more experimentation ...

  1. This is the family of wikis approach, which is probably the best.
  2. There is also a Translate extension that provides multilingual support in one wiki, which seems useful as a bridge to full support for a new wiki language.

This is not a HOWTO. Do not try this at home. Refer to official sources for instructions. Caveat: that is a wiki, too, and those are not precise instructions either, but general ideas with advantages and disadvantages.

Getting started

Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
