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. Red Arrow Right.svg Other list of torrents in the same style as the dump list:

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 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 checksum for any file downloaded from these unofficial mirrors.


  • Dark Green Arrow Down.svg: Each wiki's dumps are listed newest to oldest.
  • Wikimedia-logo-circle.svg: Dumps web seeded from the Wikimedia Foundation web server at 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 web seeds manually, any of the mirrors can be added (make sure to use the URL of the same file that is being downloaded).
  • No-Symbol.svg: No longer seeded by anyone.
  • Most-recent Wikimedia-seeded torrents are listed in bold, but they are not necessarily the latest dumps available.
  • These are seeded by more than a dozen peers.

  • Wikimedia-logo-circle.svg enwiki-20190720-pages-articles.xml.bz2 (15.20 GiB) This is a magnet link, copy it directly. Apparently BitTorrent clients are supposed to use the BTIH in the link to find the torrent file using the tracker or DHT. The torrent file is not a universal thing, so if you generate your own (especially with a different program, and especially if you upload it to a tracker that makes a change to it), it will probably have a different BTIH and the swarm will be separate. The link contains checksums for other networks, some clients for which also support Web sources.

  • For some reason Tixati does not connect to the web seed
  • uTorrent does not save the web seeds list after you close it, so you will need to add them again if you have not finished the download.
