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

Moving from MySQL to MS SQL

This is an extract from the forums. I'm hoping it will be revised and detailed later, but it can be a good start.

Just converted from mysql using the mysql odbc connector and copying table by table in SQL Server Management Studio.

No big issues, but it's important to remember to allow for “identity inserts” when you select the table to insert to.

  1. install Mantis with SQL server
  2. install mysql odbc connector
  3. setup a odbc connection in Data Sources under administrative tools
  4. use that connection when selecting source database
  5. copy table by table from mysql to sql server

I have one issue and that is that dates is not displayed correcly in mantis. Guess it's a small issue.
