Here's a summary of the setup process:
- Meet the modest system requirements (just webserver software with PHP).
- Install some free software (PmWiki and three add-ons).
- Set some passwords (an "admin" password and an "edit" password).
That's it. You'll have a working website that's ready for content.
Installing the Software
"Installing" mostly means putting files in specific directories.
Special server-writeable directories will be created. These will hold your site's pages and uploads.
Setting the Passwords
You'll edit the pre-customized configuration file (config.php) and add site-wide passwords.
