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

Requirements for Class based Filter API


The codebase for filter api is overly complicated and confusing both from a users perspective and a developers perspective. A class based filter api would:

  • Simplify the codebase
  • Increase maintainability
  • Enable greater filter customization
  • Allow a simpler user interface

Implementation Notes

  • The default simple filter would be a Google-like single textbox.
    • It may include a select list of fields to search.
    • Alternatively, administrators may be able to choose lists of fields to search/display for simple/advanced filters
    • The current search field searches the summary, description, steps to reproduce, additional information, issue bugnotes, bug id, and bugnote id fields.
    • The new search may include those fields as well as text based custom fields, tags, and in the future, expand to other fields.
  • Simple stored queries would be converted to advanced queries
  • hide status would be removed in favour of explicit show status in advanced query
  • Advanced filter would look similar to the current advanced filter with multi select fields
  • The text search would employ google-like syntax
    • A B C - search for issue with A and B and C
    • “A B C” - search for issue with the phrase “A B C”
    • A -B - search for issue with A and not with B
    • desc:A - search only the issue description for A

Database Changes

  • Alter/Create/Drop <mantis_XXX_table>
    • Add/Drop <column> <type>

Hookable Events

  • <event_name> (<type>)
    • Description
    • Parameters
    • Return value


  • $g_var indicates something
