Translate tags


If someone could fix the translate tags and explain to me how they work, that would be great, thanks. --Thibaut120094 (talk) 15:27, 6 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

20190120 enwiki torrent is not linked


There's no link for any 2019 English-language torrents. I hate to burden Wikimedia with downloading the 20190120 enwiki, but I don't know how to get it otherwise.

Where are the checksums


Shouldn't we have checksums here or some information on where to find them? Seems like a good idea to have some pointer to this information so people know that they are actually getting the download they think they should be getting? --Fincle (talk) 21:36, 22 April 2019 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I think they should be included. (Also, the "dump-torrents" project on tools.wmflabs.org claims to have sha1 and md5 checksums (example), but when I click the links I get 404 errors.) PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:51, 22 April 2019 (UTC)Reply
Guys, all checksums are available on the page of each of Wikipedia releases. Here for the english version: https://dumps.wikimedia.org/enwiki/ you'll find the checksums below the words "Dump complete", usually a few days after the dump is actually completed. 2803:9800:9017:4C35:C900:7DEA:81E6:4F5E 20:29, 12 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Tutorial anyone?


Can anyone knowledgeable please include a tutorial on how to create torrents? I'm wishful to download dumps and then share them here but I wouldn't know how to properly do it.

Blocked in UK or on Sky Broadband?


Are these bittorrents blocked in the UK or on Sky Broadband? The servers are completely non-responsive for me. Both nicdex.com and litika.com have the same IP address, as does torrage.info ( :/ Why aren't these torrent files on wikipedia itself?

Entire Wikipedia Including All History?


I would like to download a copy of all of Wikipedia, preferably all languages, and complete with history and deleted pages in a way that I can stand up my local copy. How much storage do I need to get this up and running, and where do I get the data from, please? I have a Mediawiki server already, so something like "SQL including everything plus a media tarball" or so would be preferred. The description on the website https://dumps.wikimedia.org is a bit vague and suggests that the SQL dump only contains the SQL for one day. 2A02:C7C:399B:9700:77F6:96ED:55D3:23BB 22:08, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply


Clicking on it, I get
