The above is for MidiaWiki 1.5 and later. Note, setting createaccount = false
will prevent anonymous users from creating accounts for themsleves.
Users with SysOp priviledges have additional special pages they can view, and
normal pages will include a delete tab.
Which accounts have SysOp access is controlled by editing/adding records
in the Wiki's mw_user_groups table.
