User:Dross/Invalid wikis

From Miraheze Meta, Miraheze's central coordination wiki

Here I document a running list of subdomains and database names which are invalid for one reason or another, so I can keep track of them and reference for situations in which they come up.

Technical limitations[edit source]

These are subdomains and/or database names which are reserved for one reason or another within the Miraheze infrastructure. Projects with similar names to these are almost certain to be denied.

URL Database Reserved for Function Notes N/A Bacula Backups N/A Varnish Cache proxy N/A MariaDB Database software for Miraheze services N/A Grafana Service metrics N/A Icinga Service monitoring N/A LizardFS File storage N/A Email Mail server Unknown Matomo Analytics N/A Miscellaneous services N/A MediaWiki MediaWiki appserver N/A GDNSD DNS Exists on misc1. Unknown Phabricator Support, improvements, internal communication Unknown Puppet Configuration deployment I'm not all that familiar with Puppet, so not a good authority/reference. Unknown File delivery test1 Pre-deployment testing Not a public test wiki; use instead.

Official wikis and those exempt from inactivity[edit source]
