Keeping your installation of MediaWiki up to date allows you to remain protected against security vulnerabilities, fixes bugs, and major upgrades also add new features and functionality. The current versions of MediaWiki are 1.19.23, 1.23.8, and 1.24.1 (check what version you are currently running). We can do the upgrade it for you following the proper upgrade procedure. We will also upgrade any out of date extensions that are installed.
If your MediaWiki installation has already been hacked, upgrading it will not clean it up. In that situation we can clean up the hack and then upgrade it.
Once the upgrade has been completed, we test the website to insure the upgrade has not caused any issues. We can usually upgrade your MediaWiki installation in a few hours.
