administrators (basic) This page explains how to download and install PmWiki 2.0. Here's a list of related pages:
2. Unpack the archive (
tar zxvf pmwiki-latest.tgz or
unzip pmwiki-latest.zip). This will create a pmwiki-x.y.z directory containing the PmWiki software. For example, the current "latest" should unpack to a directory named "pmwiki-2.0.13". The files in this directory include:
COPYING The GNU General Public License local/ A directory for local configuration scripts pmwiki.php Main PmWiki script pub/ Directory of publicly accessible files css/ Directory for generic .css files skins/ Directory of layout templates (skins) sample-config.php A sample configuration file scripts/ Some scripts that extend the possibilities of PmWiki wikilib.d/ Directory containing some default PmWiki files cookbook/ A directory for recipes obtained from the Cookbook.
3. The pmwiki-x.y.z directory needs to be placed into a location accessible by your webserver (e.g., in a public_html directory of some sort). You can place files and directories using a number of methods -- FTP, or a Unix
cp command generally does the job.
4. Open a web browser to the pmwiki.php script on the server (i.e., not the one on your local computer or accessed using a file://... URL). PmWiki will then analyze your system configuration and provide instructions (if needed) for creating the wiki.d/ directory which will be used to hold the pages created for your site. Usually there are two ways to achieve this:
chmod 777 wiki.d"). Use this method when "safe mode" is activated in the servers PHP installation.
chmod 2777 .
chmodcommand also works in many FTP programs. Creating wiki.d/ in this manner will (1) make the directory writable so the web server can create the data directory it needs for the wiki files, (2) preserve group ownership of the directory so the installer account can manipulate the files created in this directory, and (3) make it more difficult for other accounts on the same server to access the files in wiki.d/.
5. After establishing directory permissions, try opening a browser to the pmwiki.php script again. If all is well, the wiki.d directory will have been created and you'll see the default home page.
Important: If you used method 4b, you should reset permissions by executing "
chmod 755 ." in the directory containing pmwiki.php.
7. If you want to use PmWiki in a different language download the international language pack as zip archive (i18n.zip) or as gzipped tarball (i18n.tgz) from http://www.pmwiki.org/pub/pmwiki/. Then extract it and copy the files into the wikilib.d/ directory as described above
umask 002on the command line before unpacking the tar file.
