Miraheze is a non-profit MediaWiki wikifarm similar to Orain which was set up in August 2015. As of November 2017, they host about 2600 wikis (including private ones).

Hosting

Based on their Finance page, they operate on a rather tight budget with hosting provided by RamNode.[1] As of September 2017, their whole cluster sits on approximately 22 CPU cores, 22.6 GB RAM and ~1.3 TB of disk space[2] (outdated). They currently operate 15 servers for different uses.

The wikifarm also hosts the All The Tropes wiki, which is also the largest wiki that they host.

Backups

Miraheze makes their own backups of their services regularly to an offsite server (provided by Backupsy).[3] In April 2019, Miraheze launched and deployed the DataDump extension on all its wikis, allowing wiki operators to generate and download dumps through the "Special:DataDump" page.[4] By default, only admins possess the "view-dump", "delete-dump", and "generate-dump" rights,[5] but wiki operators can extend these rights to other users through "Special:ManageWikiPermissions" if they so desire.

WikiTeam also managed to grab about 685 public wikis hosted on its cluster in September 2016.[6] and in April 2017.[7]

A list of all wikis can be found here.
