In order to lock a wiki, do the following.

Wikimedia configuration

  • Read How to do a configuration change
  • Add the wiki to closed.dblist
  • Remove the wiki from groupOverrides and groupOverrides2 in wmf-config/InitialiseSettings.php
  • If you didn't modify InitialiseSettings.php in the previous step, run touch wmf-config/InitialiseSettings.php on the deployment server to trigger the update of the config cache


Parsoid has its own copy of SiteMatrix, which needs updating using tools/fetch-sitematrix.js in mediawiki/services/parsoid.git.

Then, once merged, it must be deployed; if not, switch to visual editor will trigger Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 () errors.
