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

Enabling Anonymous Access

Mantis can be setup in a way to allow users to access Mantis without having to sign up or login. For security reasons this feature is disabled by default. Mantis allows customising what an anonymous user can access and can modify the same way it does for normal user. This is done by requiring that a user account be created and granted all the required access and then being selected as the account to be used for anonymous access.

  • Create a user account
    • Name: typically “anonymous” or “guest”.
    • Real Name: leave empty.
    • Email: anonymous@localhost (or leave empty if you also set $g_allow_blank_email = ON).
    • Access Level: Typically viewer or reporter depending on the requirement.
    • Enabled: true
    • Protected: true
  • Provide the account with access to the necessary “private” projects. The anonymous user will automatically get access to “public” projects.
  • Set the following configuration options in config_inc.php.
# --- anonymous login -----------
$g_allow_anonymous_login = ON;
$g_anonymous_account = 'anonymous';
# Optionally, if you want to use blank email addresses
$g_allow_blank_email = ON;
