But the nice thing is that you do *not* have to decide in advance if 
you want to have just one wiki or a farm. If you start with a single 
wiki, you can convert it to a farm by simply adding an single file 
(local/farmconfig.php) to it.  This is the method recommended on 

And as Hagan pointed out, calling a single wiki a wiki farm is 
equivalent to calling a single server a server farm.
