Downloading all Mediawiki site content

How do I download all mediawiki site content using webmin? I wish to host the wiki site on another server.

Not possible as a 'one-step' process in Webmin

Unless you wish to tranfer to another TKL server (hosted somewhere else, eg AWS server, to locally hosted one, etc). If that's what you want to do, TKLBAM should work a treat! TKLBAM has a Webmin module and it's a case of run a backup on the old server, create the new server (inc adding your API key) and restore your backup, easy!

Otherwise if you are planning on moving to a different server all together then your best bet is to run a full manual backup/migration using the official MediaWiki docs. Have a look here. Note: IIRC correctly TKL MediaWiki includes phpMyAdmin (via https on port 12322) which will make dumping the DB pretty easy.

Thank you very much Jeremy

Thank you very much Jeremy for your prompt reply.

I will have a look at the office Mediawiki doc. That's exactly what I want to do.
