Basic Setup

Here's a summary of the setup process:

  1. Meet the modest system requirements (just webserver software with PHP).
  2. Install some free software (PmWiki and three add-ons).
  3. 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.

Next: Install the Software from the command line
or: Install the Software using (S)FTP
