Installation

In a shared hosting environment, TWiki works "out of the box", see TwikiInstallation.

Foswiki, however, requires some Perl modules that are not installed by default on most shared hosting machines!

Without the following three Perl modules, the installation won't even start:
  • CGI::Session
  • Crypt::PasswdMD5
  • File::Copy::Recursive

3 perl-modules
.htaccess in pub
default url host

%INCLUDE{System.WebChangesRightBox}%

There were errors adding to the AdminGroup group. StijnBousard : Can't locate Algorithm/Diff.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

/home/boossybe/domains/boossy.be/public_html/foswiki/lib
/home/boossybe/domains/boossy.be/public_html/foswiki/lib/CPAN/lib

Check version

  • system variable: v2.1.6

Move from subdirectory to subdomain

1 Create subdomain in DirectAdmin

Uw Account > Subdomein-beheer
