- Someone else is setting up the server and you want to avoid the back & forth of tweaking the server configs. Just send the file and they can can set everything.
- You want to make sure server is adequate before subscribing to a provider.
- Download tiki-check.php from SourceForge.net
- Upload to the web accessible directory of your server (ex.: /www/html/tiki-check.php)
- Visit tiki-check.php with your browser
- Since this file discloses server info, it becomes password protected once you install Tiki. If you end up not installing Tiki, you should remove the file.

If you can use the file, make sure permissions are OK. Too few or too many permissions can cause issues.
They are typically in the admin panel next to the relevant feature/setting. This is useful but without a central checklist of all of them when deploying on a new server (especially a server which has never been configured for web hosting), there can be a lot of back & forth to tweak all the settings. You are also forced to install Tiki to see what could be problematic. Instead, in a single file upload (tiki-check.php), we should have a clear report on everything that should be tweaked.
This is useful for fresh installs or if you are moving a Tiki instance from one server to another. This will also help when people report bugs (you can copy-paste this info in the bug tracker).
