- and others.
See the Tiki migration documentation for details.
- Use Tiki Check to make sure new server has the proper requirements.
- Create a backup of the existing site, including the MySQL database.
- Restore all files and the MySQL database on your new server.
Be sure that your new server meets all necessary Requirements.
- Run the Tiki Installer and specify your new database connection/location information.
Alternatively, you can manually update the database connection information.
You can enable the Logging and Reporting options on the Admin: General page, General Preferences tab.
If you are unable to access your Tiki or log in as the admin, you can enable the logging and error reporting by using the Tiki Installer.

Tiki needs more memory. Increase the memory_limit setting in your php.ini file. See PHP requirements for more information.
Blank pages may be caused by several things:
- Tiki needs more memory. Increase the memory_limit setting in your php.ini file. See PHP requirements for more information.
- You may have included invalid Smarty or HTML syntax in a module, or custom code area.
See Consultants for information on available Tiki consultants for hire.
By default, Tiki uses utf-8 encoding.
- For new installations, verify that your database, tables, and connection collation is set properly.
- For upgrades, review the Upgrade - Fix Encoding Issues and Encode Fix Verification pages.
There are several methods to create a new wiki page:
- Create a link from an existing page Tiki will automatically create the new (destination) page when you click the link.
- Create a new page by using the Quick Edit module.
You have enabled the WikiWords feature. This is a quick and easy way to create links (and create) other wiki pages.
To have a word in CaMeL CaSe not create a wiki link (even if the WikiWords feature is on), simply surround the word with two inverse parentheses.
For example: ))NotALink((
Even though the text ))NotALink(( is in CaMel CaSe, it is not a link.
By default, Tiki will always interpret WikiSyntax, such as === for underlining and '' for italic.
To turn off wiki syntax processing, use the ~np~ syntax. See WikiSyntax for details.
To enable the spellchecker:
- Download the spelling database table and add it to your database.
- Enable the spell checking option on the Wiki Config page.
Note: The spellchecker is an endangered features. You should use a browser-based spellchecker add-on instead.
- If the image file already exists on your webserver, simply include its path and filename.
- You can upload an image file while editing the wiki page by using the Upload Picture field. Tiki will automatically add the necessary wiki syntax Image to the page.
When you editing a wiki page, there is an option for a minor edit (if enabled ). If selected, other users who are watching the page will not receive email notifications.
See Using Wiki Pages for more information.
The maximum wiki page size is determined by the datatype of the DESCRIPTION column of the TIKI_PAGES database table.
- Starting with Tiki 1.10, Tiki uses the MEDIUMTEXT datatype. The maximum page size is 16MB.
- In Tiki 1.9 (and earlier), Tiki uses the TEXT datatype. The maximum page size is 64K.
You can manually change the datatype to LONGTEXT to have longer 4GB) pages. Refer to the MySQL documentation for details.
- Enable the Batch Uploading option on the Admin: File Gallery page.
- Archive the files/images into a single .ZIP file (see ToolBox page)
- On the File Upload page, use the Batch Upload field to select your archive file.
The maximum upload file size is determined by the upload_max_filesize setting in your php.ini configuration file.
Refer to the Requirements and Setup documentation for details.
Automatic thumbnail generation uses/requires the GD or Imagick image libraries. If the libraries are installed properly on your server and Tiki is able to access the installation, there should be no additional work — Tiki will automatically generate the thumbnails.
You can regenerate your thumbails of any gallery with id XXX while browsing it (tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=XXX) through the option "rebuild thumbnails" (tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=XXX&rebuild=XXX)
You can add images (JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP) to a wiki page by using the Image wiki syntax. See Wiki-Syntax Images for details.
Note: The Image Gallery was removed in Tiki 23. We recommend using the File Gallery instead.
Note: Prior to Tiki 4, the Look & Feel was called Site Identity.
Use the Admin: Look & Feel page to select a default theme (set of templates and CSS style sheet) for your Tiki. Any CSS file in your ../styles directory can be selected.
In addition to the themes included with the Tiki installation, you create your own custom themes.
For more information, see https://themes.tiki.org.
To make global changes, edit the theme's CSS file
To make specific changes, use the appropriate wiki syntax to change text attributes.
If you lose your admin password, you can reset it directly from the database.
Execute the following command via ssh:
php console.php users:password admin MYNEWPASS
- MYNEWPASS is a new password.
TIP: Always use a secure password.
If you accidentally deleted the admin account, you will need to restore it from a backup of the database.
Tiki requires the username admin for your administrator account. You can add a new user (with any name) and grant this use all admin permissions, but you can't rename or remove admin. Be sure to give the admin a strong password. It is best to only have one user (admin) with god level permissions.
Tiki can create an RSS feed for a specific Tiki feature (such as wiki, blog, and so on) that visitors can subscribe to. Tiki can syndicate a valid RSS feed from another website
Use the RSS Config page to configure your Tiki's RSS feeds, including a number of items to include, name, title, and so on. Your Tiki will now include an RSS link the bottom bar (if it is enabled) allowing users to subscribe to the RSS feed.
RSS feeds from other sites can be included in Tiki modules or wiki pages.
- Use the RSS Modules to create a new RSS module.
- Add the RSS module to a wiki area or module by using:
Where xx is the ID that was assigned when you created the RSS module.
