Installation


http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Installation

The objectives for Installation are as follows:

1. Copy and Redirect pages from Tikiwiki.org

Tikiwiki.org has many pages with install information. Most, if not all, are outdated. We should ensure the documentation supports both those who use SSH and FTP (and for those with no root access).

Install by SSH
Install by FTP
Install from panel
Install from command line linux
Install Windows
Register your Tiki site

2. Explaining the Tikiwiki Architecture

Tikiwiki Folders Explained
an explanation of what you see in the main directory including

  • what it does
  • which folders need to be backed up (contain user specific files)
  • secure permissions for each folder
  • optional folders (can be deleted if feature is not in use?) (but not until you backup your initial install, right?)

What to do first

Initial Configuration
  • change admin password
  • set up groups
  • set up users
  • configure homepage

Backup Instructions


The hub will be at Backup
http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Backup

simple instructions on backing up the files DB, with specific pages for different hosting environments.

  • advice when to backup
  • about the ISP backup
  • which tiki folders contain user data.
  • how to set up automatic backups.
  • how to restore the database
  • how to restore the tikiwiki fileset
  • An untested backup is a worthless backup

Upgrade


The hub page will be (surprise!) Upgrade.

http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Upgrade

1. Documenting Upgrade Paths

The object is not to provide generic upgrade instructions but clear, (idiot proof) step by step tutorials for each normal upgrade path. e.g. Upgrade 1.9.x to 1.9.7
Similar content can easily be copied back and forth. Let's give users the confidence to do it right.

Non-typical upgrade paths should not be documented and thus be discouraged.

Each page should contain specific instruction pages for normal upgrade
paths including:
  • instructions for upgrading tikiwiki files.
  • instructions for upgrading the database.
  • instructions for upgrading themes.
