DokuWiki Installer


This page assists in the first time installation and configuration of Dokuwiki. More info on this installer is available on it's own documentation page.

DokuWiki uses ordinary files for the storage of wiki pages and other information associated with those pages (e.g. images, search indexes, old revisions, etc). In order to operate successfully DokuWiki must have write access to the directories that hold those files. This installer is not capable of setting up directory permissions. That normally needs to be done directly on a command shell or if you are using hosting, through FTP or your hosting control panel (e.g. cPanel).

This installer will setup your DokuWiki configuration for ACL, which in turn allows administrator login and access to DokuWiki's admin menu for installing plugins, managing users, managing access to wiki pages and alteration of configuration settings. It isn't required for DokuWiki to operate, however it will make Dokuwiki easier to administer.

Experienced users or users with special setup requirements should use these links for details concerning installation instructions and configuration settings.

For security reasons this script will only work with a new and unmodified Dokuwiki installation. You should either re-extract the files from the downloaded package or consult the complete Dokuwiki installation instructions

Developer Journal Requirements


Although Mantis can keep notes regarding specific issues, it cannot securely track day to day logging of individual developers. A solution might be to create a developer specific issue that would never close, but this is somewhat clumsy. Another solution would be to just hold the journal within the wiki, but this has security issues, and doesn't allow for the ability of developers and managers to comment easily on notes as they can within the issue notes. I believe the better solution would be to add journal interface to mantis. There's a couple of ways this can be done as well. Natively writing it in, or similar to the wiki plugin, using an external blog project as a plugin. A colleague has integrated forum with mantis, but from what I can tell it is not configured for privacy, or doesn't have that capability. I invite him to comment if I'm mistaken.

Implementation Notes

  • This could easily be done by using the bugnote tables.

Database Changes

  • None, with the exception that there would be an additional note_type define JOURNAL for the table mantis_bugnote_table
  • The bug_id would now have a meaning against two tables mantis_bug_table and mantis_user_table


  • $g_journal indicate whether or not to allow the journal
  • $g_journal_threshold indicates the user level allowed to keep a journal

Implementation Log

Other Changes


  • This is just a first pass at implementation and I would like any comments or suggestions
