Old doc:

Registered users can try here:


Error - When attempting to enable the Edit Templates feature you encounter a 404 page with the error You don't have permission to access tiki-edit_templates.php on this server
Possible Explanation - Some shared hosting companies have built-in security that prevents certain files from being executed. If you received an error similar to this when installing TikiWiki the same solution likely applies.
Solution - Contact your host and have them 'whitelist' or allow the file tiki-edit_css.php to be executed.
