Installing Tiki via Fantastico




Background on Siteground

Siteground.com is a typical Fantastico host and one of the Tiki friendly hosts so it is used an an example for this documentation. All other Fantastico hosts will be very similar. Shared hosting provides mainly a inexpensive, easy hosting service for low traffic wikis. Their customer service is very good, and their interface is user friendly, but their servers are heavily loaded and sometimes tiki performance is kinda slow. Overall a good bet for a starter wiki host.

  • Includes CPanel and Fantastico - includes installation through fantastico and webanalysis and other tools through cpanel


Installation

After securing an account and choosing a domain name, installation is straightforward. Installation is either install by FTP, or with Fantastico with siteground you cannot use SSH.
