Monkey Wiki is running on a Linux Debian server.
I have two servers : one with Debian the other with Ubuntu. So what I describe is linux driven, especially Debian (for instance Apache settings).
I organize the wiki life :
Note that the cgi-bin directory is in /var/www (this is not Ubuntu's way).
So each wiki may be
For each wiki, in /var/www I place a directory (say mw_wiki) and inside this
I create all the subdirectories I need, one for each wiki.
Then I create subdirectories in each:
These two directory are not in a basic mw installation and the last one is used in parallel with the "information-backup" system of Monkey Wiki.
/var/www/monkey_wiki/qmwiki/text is thus the place to hold all the pages for qmwiki.
The basic Style File is from Barnaby's site (I copy the css file) with a few modifications and Template File is mine.
I need two wrappers, because only team member can modify the wiki, visitors beeing admitted to only read.
The basic wrapper is designed to enable reading so EDITABLE is set to 0
The admin wrapper has EDITABLE=1 to enable writing, renaming and deleting.
#!/usr/bin/python import cgi #the wrapper is a small cgi program import monkeywiki as mw #it is calling monkeywiki mw.PATH_TO_WIKI_TEXT = '/var/www/monkey_wiki/mq_wiki/text/' mw.PATH_TO_TEMPLATES = '/var/www/monkey_wiki/mq_wiki/templates/' mw.EDITABLE = 0 #read only mw.BACKUP_DIR = 'no_dir_needed' #if read only no modification and no backup mw.main()
This wrapper is in the cgi directory
#!/usr/bin/python import cgi #the wrapper is a small cgi program import monkeywiki as mw #it is calling monkeywiki mw.PATH_TO_WIKI_TEXT = '/var/www/monkey_wiki/mq_wiki/text/' #same site as before mw.PATH_TO_TEMPLATES = 'nothing' #no template for administrator, a plain white page without css ! mw.EDITABLE = 1 #the team members will have writing access mw.BACKUP_DIR = '/var/www/monkey_wiki/mq_wiki/backup/' #and therefore backup is needed mw.main()
This version is in a /var/www/cgi-bin/adminwiki directory with .htaccess and .htpasswd protection
Of course you need to configure apache (or another web server, but why not apache ?)
In Apache Settings you will find the lines I use.
You need also to create the .htaccess and .htpasswd files inside the protected directory.
