I have installed MediaWiki on my website. I want to shut it down temporarily, until I completely fill it with articles.

Is this possible? Is there any maintenance shut down feature?

(Version: 1.18.1)


Add to LocalSettings.php:

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;

But of course admin is able to edit pages.

Maybe $wgReadOnly is what you're looking for.
