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

Avatars for users


In many sites, posts are associated with an “avatar”, a small image chosen by the user to represent his online presence.

We could implement the same feature, targetting primarily the bugnotes, where such images will not waste space


The implemented code is based on the web service. In order to show the personal avatar, users should register with the service using the same e-mail address stored in mantis.

NOTE: after the initial registration (or after changing the gravatar icon) there is often a delay before the avatar is correctly shown on mantis. More informations in the gravatar blog

The feature is controlled by the $g_show_avatar configuration variable and right now defaults to OFF

Possible improvements

Add a local storage for avatars, so that users can opt to upload the avatar directly in mantis.

This is probably something to add on the user preference page
