Please follow the XML Data Dumps mailing list by reading the archives or subscribing, for up to date news about the dumps; you can also make inquiries about them there.



This is an unofficial listing of Wikimedia data dump torrents, dumps of Wikimedia site content distributed using BitTorrent, the most popular peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. This includes both dumps already being distributed at dumps.wikimedia.org and dumps created and distributed solely by others.

BitTorrent is not officially used to distribute Wikimedia dumps; this article lists user-created torrents. Please protect your computer and verify the md5sum for any file downloaded from these unofficial mirrors.

Legend:

  • Each wiki's dumps are listed newest to oldest.
  • W-circle.svg: Dumps web seeded from the Wikimedia Foundation web server at dumps.wikimedia.org. These torrents should match the original dump exactly and have at least one high-speed seed for BitTorrent clients that support the "GetRight" web seeding method (BEP0019). Clients that do not support web seeds will still be able to download from other peers (if any). To speed up downloading, on BitTorrent clients that support adding additional webseeds manually, any of the mirrors can be added (make sure to use the URL of the same file that is being downloaded).
  • Most-recent Wikimedia-seeded torrents are listed in bold.
  • These are seeded by more than a dozen peers.
