Please note, as of March 1, 2021, Hosted Parsoid is sunsetting. Currently, we are closed for new signups. We are still offering our world class wiki hosting plans. For more information about why Hosted Parsoid is saying goodbye, please see our announcement on Medium.
If the above links' instructions do not work, please see the troubleshooting instructions provided below.
- Be sure that you have been confirmed by MyWikis to have your wiki authorized for Parsoid.
- Run the latest stable version of MediaWiki and VisualEditor.
- Visit a page on your wiki and try the "Edit" button (not the "Edit source" button). If that does not work, try going to an unmade page and press "Create" instead of "Create source."
- If that succeeds, congratulations! Your Parsoid service now works.
If this configuration does not work and pops up an error message:
- Either our server is down (you can check by going to https://server3.mywikis.net:8143 in your browser; there should be a page that says "Welcome to the Parsoid service" if it is up.)
- or your wiki configuration needs to be fixed a bit:
Try getting the NetworkAuth (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:NetworkAuth) extension and putting this in your LocalSettings.php file:
require_once( "$IP/extensions/NetworkAuth/NetworkAuth.php" );
$wgNetworkAuthUsers = array(
'iprange' => array('188.8.131.52/8'),
'user' => 'parsoid'
