Wikitravel uses the MediaWiki Wiki software created for Wikipedia, with some minuscule local modifications. MediaWiki is written in the PHP language and uses MySQL for database storage.

Wikitravel does not use the servers, administrative staff, or funds of the Wikimedia Foundation; this wiki and that wiki merely use the same freely-licenced software. The site is operated by Internet Brands, hosted on a shared commercial Web-hosting service. As of July 2005, our network service can handle a little more than 5 times our current bandwidth requirements (60Gb/mo used out of 300Gb/mo), and about 5 times our current disk space requirements (4 out of 20Gb disk space used).
