Raw database dumps

Last dump made: 2003-12-12 (yesterday)
Total size 3709MB (268MB for just current revisions)

These are SQL dumps of the current and old article revision databases for each wiki. They can be read into a local database and directly used with the MediaWiki software (MySQL, PHP, Apache required).

These dumps are not suitable for viewing in a web browser or text editor unless you do a little preprocessing on them first.

Dumps are compressed with bzip2. (windows, mac help notes needed)


For mass backup purposes, it may be more convenient to download all dumps in a single lump. Currently all but English are available in a single tarball; get this and the larger English dump below for a complete set of articles in three files.
