The Wikipedia DB Schema

Ever wonder what wikipedia database schema looks like?

Take a look! It's actually pretty clean and simple for a site so large and complex.


  1. Star schema FTW! (Look at the page table.)

  2. Now THAT is how you do an entity relationship diagram. The notes on that make me want to weep for joy and simultaneously cringe as I remember my days working in telecom trying to decode billing schemas.
