I want to export all pages (in all namespaces, and with all revisions!) of a public MediaWiki installation. I’m just a visitor, so I have no admin access.
The export is possible with the
Special:Export page. It takes a list of page names and exports all given pages in a single XML file. Great!
However, how could I get a list of all pages?
- The results are paginated.
- It doesn’t include the namespace in the page name (anchor text).
Is there a better way?
(I know that there may be various special extensions that allow visitors to export pages or download a backup, however, assume that the MediaWiki installation in question doesn’t use any extensions, it’s just a default installation.)
