[MediaWiki-l] Modifying user rights and anti spam measures

Aaron Gray-6
Hi,

A couple of quick questions, how do I stop anyone else from registering,
and how do I stop anyone who is not a registered user from editing ?

I seem to remember doing something in the LocalSettings.php file, but
cannot remember what :(

I am wondering what anti bot spam measures there are for MediaWIki.

Many thanks in advance,

Aron

In LocalSettings.php:
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['edit'] = true;

Third line might not be necessary, but use it if the previous one stops
even logged in users from editing.

Alex

As for spam, you will want to at least learn about a Captcha.  I had good
results with QuestyCaptcha.

Do you mean you want to make your install a single-user install?
You asked "How do I stop ANYONE else from registering....."

If so, this is how I setup my own install recently.  Single user.  Myself.
