Alex Schroeder is the administrator of Emacs wiki. It is hosted by Thinkmo in Germany. The first edit was made in **2001-05-14**. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine agrees and has a snapshot for 2001-06-09.

The Emacs Wiki is located at http://www.emacswiki.org/, or http://purl.org/wiki/emacs/, or http://emacswiki.wikiwikiweb.de/, if emacswiki.org is down. This is a virtual hosting environment, therefore you need to use HTTP/1.1 to access the site.

You can reach the provider at http://www.wikiwikiweb.de/ and http://www.thinkmo.de/. If you notice page corruption or other problems, however, send mailto:alex@emacswiki.org or mailto:alex@gnu.org. The webmaster of emacswiki.org is also the webmaster of all the other virtual hosts.


At the moment AlexSchroeder is paying for the server: The people at thinkmo.de are asking for EUR 20 per month which basically covers bandwidth. This wiki and the blogs of my family all run on the emacswiki.org domain and it's using about 10G per month.

There will not be any ads on emacswiki.org.

Wiki Engine

This wiki runs Oddmuse.

Using a wiki engine written in Lisp or Scheme would have been more in the spirit of Emacs and XEmacs, but Perl is ubiquitous, and Oddmuse is just one single Perl script, easy to install.
