$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
  • Limit account creation e.g. only allow admins to create accounts / via a QuestyCaptcha question.
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;
  • Create at least one (sharable) test account
  • Set up a robots.txt to avoid indexing by search engines
