Ecaterina Moraru 47.1 11 MyXWiki.org is a **free service** offered by [[XWiki SAS>>http://www.xwiki.com/]] for **non-profit organizations** and **individuals**. It's subject to the rules and limitations listed below.
Vincent Massol 9.1 12
Vincent Massol 37.2 13 For more elaborate needs, XWiki SAS offers [[XWiki Cloud>>http://www.xwiki.com/en/products/try-xwiki-cloud]] and [[professional hosting and support services>>http://www.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/Services/Hosting]]. Organizations evaluating wikis can also [[download a standard distribution of XWiki Enterprise>>http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Download#HXWikiEnterprise]] for this purpose.

Vincent Massol 54.1 15 == What is it for? ==
Ecaterina Moraru 47.1 17 The farm is open to individuals and non-profit organizations to create wikis on. However the target users are mostly technical people who can support themselves. This farm should never be used for critical wikis. For that consider using [[XWiki Cloud by XWiki SAS>>http://www.xwiki.com/en/products/try-xwiki-cloud]].

19 == What is it not? ==
21 It’s important to realize that myxwiki.org is not for testing XWiki! It’s a farm for real projects that are non-business oriented (non-profit organizations and individuals). But it’s maintenance work for the XWiki developers of the xwiki project (to create the wikis, to remove them after you’ve finished using them, to answer questions, etc) and all this time it taken from the development of XWiki itself. So we prefer to reserve myxwiki.org for real usage and not for testing.
23 If you what you need is testing XWiki, you have 3 solutions:
24 * Try the [[XWiki.org Playground>>https://playground.xwiki.org/]]
25 * [[Download and install XWiki on your machine>>https://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Download/]] (there's a very simple demo distribution that only requires to unzip a file)
26 * Test XWiki on [[XWiki Cloud>>http://www.xwiki.com/en/products/try-xwiki-cloud]]

Ecaterina Moraru 47.1 31 == Rules & Limitations ==
Vincent Massol 13.1 33 This community farm is subject to the following rules:
Ecaterina Moraru 43.1 34
Ecaterina Moraru 47.1 35 * **No support warranty**. All support is done on the [[XWiki Forum>>http://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/Discuss]] by the community.
36 * **No stability warranty**. We install the latest milestone version of XWiki Enterprise Manager on this farm and we use it as a stability test for the XWiki development team.
37 * **No uptime warranty**. It’s possible the farm will be down a few days in a row although we’ll do the maximum so that it doesn’t happen.
38 * **No performance warranty**. This farm is hosting a lot of wikis and they share the same XWiki instance so it's possible that you wiki will be slow.
39 * **No upgrade help**. You'll need to handle that yourself when we upgrade the XWiki instance for this farm.
40 * It's your duty to keep your wiki healthy and to avoid having it use too many resources (CPU and memory). This means **avoiding using costly scripts** and properly securing your wiki to avoid spam users and spam comments. Your wiki may be closed if it's not abiding by this rule.
41 * You **don't have Programming Rights** on your wiki for security reasons. This means you cannot install Extensions requiring Programming Rights or Extensions installing JARs, nor use privileged APIs inside scripts in wiki pages.
Vincent Massol 54.1 42 * You **won't** be able to create subwikis.
