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

Website Requirements

Author: Victor Boctor


This page is the place holder for the requirements for a new version of the Mantis website.

Website Components

The website is currently composed of the following:

  • Main Webpages
  • Forums (phpBB)
  • Bug Tracker (Mantis)
  • Wiki (DokuWiki)
  • Manual (custom Manual implementation)
  • Manual Notes (phpWebnotes)

Look 'n' Feel

One of the main targets would be to design a consistent look 'n' feel for all these components. This will require a template for each of the Mantis website components that provides such consistent look 'n' feel.

The design should also aim for an attractive and well organize layout. Updates to the website (after re-design) should require minimal coding updates and almost no graphics work.

Possible New Components

The following components can be added to the website:

  • WordPress - Replace the use of the Mantis News with WordPress. The word press should detect and hyperlink references to Mantis issues.

Backward Compatibility

The links to the website must not be broken. Hence, current pages should still exist.
