  1. What you can do is rename your LocalSettings.php and then re-install MediaWiki into another database and then you will have a clean LocalSettings.php file.
  2. You can create nested subcategories and you can import CSV as per https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Data_Transfer but to automate this for 10K items is complicated and you would most likely need a developer for that. Your request about a custom form that shows the nested categories as dropdowns is also doable. Part of it is here https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:MsCatSelect but I am uncertain if that's what you need.
  3. You can assign users to be admins. See here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:User_rights_and_groups For more details about user rights, see here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User_rights
  4. Remove the line wfLoadExtension( 'WikiEditor' ); and see if that helps.
  5. Where did you unpack the WikiEditor files to? Can you show us your full LocalSettings.php file? Just delete the password first.
  6. You can certainly try. It should work, but there is of course no guarantee, Just make sure that you have a full backup of all files and your database. If it fails, let us know and we can try to help.
  7. Why useless? Because it appears that this is a real person? If so, how about only allowing edits by approved user accounts? Then you can approve/disapprove/disable whatever users you want.
  8. Your questions are the same essentially -- you want to customize the sidebar based on the page. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Interface/Sidebar/Hacks for how to "Show a different sidebar for anonymous users" and you can then extend that concept to show a unique sidebar for different category pages. You would need coding skills for this task.
  9. See http://php.net/manual/en/mysqli.real-escape-string.php You must add the mysqli_connect link object.
  10. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Images#Size_and_frame
  11. You can use one of these: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Moderation https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ArticleProtection for moderation/protection. A user can "watch" a page and thus be notified via email of any changes: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Watching_pages and if they want to "watch" an entire category, you could use this: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CategoryWatch
  12. Yes, you would just delete your database (or save it for archive purposes) and create a new one and then delete (or rename) your LocalSettings.php and then re-install MediaWiki. There is here a brief guide on How to Install MediaWiki as well.
  13. Skizzers is correct. It would appear that you are using the code from here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Wiki_family#Basic_principles which will show the error ""It was not possible to determine the wiki ID." when the database is not found. The code there is in your LocalSettings.php file so open that file and take a look and see if your subdomain is listed there correctly.
