When I tried to install mediawiki online there were so many bugs in the PHP code ,
PHP code looks (while installing)for UpperCase letters directories and where as the directories are
present in lower case, unless changed to (the directory names) uppercase , MediaWiki installation
does not move forward at all.
And the second thing , when I visited the page
and clicked on the edit link , and changed some entries, it did change.so page can be
changed/defaced by anyone at anytime.
Please note that this page must be secure and should not edited unless one has an account to do so.
Hoping the best future of MediaWiki,
please check if your downloaded tarball matches md5 checksum published on
websites. there should be no UpperCase directories in code.
as for meta.wikimedia - it is a wiki - a site, editable by everyone. you are
trying to install such package. everyone will be able to edit your site as well.
if you call that insecurity, you should be looking for a CMS, not a Wiki.
