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

General Suggestions

After reading the documentation, and the code, I'd suggest that plugins SHOULD actually be utilized for user replacable functionality. A prime example for this would be a login event. Authentication plugins could then react to a login event, and return if a user is authorized for something. This would also potentially allow for multiple authentication mechanisms, such as a Mantis specific administrator, but also single signon authentication with, say, an ldap source.

IRC Chats


<vboctor_> nuclear_eclipse, some question relating to events:

<vboctor_> 1. A lot of companies replace the Mantis Logo in the header 
with their own branding, are we going to support this via plugins?
<jreese> As it is right now, the Mantis Logo is hardcoded to display, 
unless the user has set $g_top_include_page in their configuration.  
As plugins are meant to *add* features and content, rather than modify
the existing functionality, I don't feel this applies well in its 
current form.

<vboctor_> 2. I think that page header should be the first thing in the
page, event [even? -jr] before the logo etc.  This is important to allow
integrating Mantis into websites and CMS.
<jrees> Well, if we keep it as it currently is, the user can simply set
up $g_top_include_page and $g_bottom_include_page, to handle integration
rather than trying to make this happen in plugins.  

<vboctor_> 3. In case of integrating Mantis in websites / CMS we want to
avoid generating our own HEAD/BODY etc, right?  
<jreese> This depends, there are parts of Mantis that need to output 
resource links in the <head> tag, like CSS and Javascript, but to have
Mantis integrated into other applications (not vice versa a la Dokuwiki)
we could have the <head> section only output if $g_top_include_page isn't

<vboctor_> 4. What about the string display chaining event?

* To be answered shortly.
