DokuWiki Installer


This page assists in the first time installation and configuration of Dokuwiki. More info on this installer is available on it's own documentation page.

DokuWiki uses ordinary files for the storage of wiki pages and other information associated with those pages (e.g. images, search indexes, old revisions, etc). In order to operate successfully DokuWiki must have write access to the directories that hold those files. This installer is not capable of setting up directory permissions. That normally needs to be done directly on a command shell or if you are using hosting, through FTP or your hosting control panel (e.g. cPanel).

This installer will setup your DokuWiki configuration for ACL, which in turn allows administrator login and access to DokuWiki's admin menu for installing plugins, managing users, managing access to wiki pages and alteration of configuration settings. It isn't required for DokuWiki to operate, however it will make Dokuwiki easier to administer.

Experienced users or users with special setup requirements should use these links for details concerning installation instructions and configuration settings.

For security reasons this script will only work with a new and unmodified Dokuwiki installation. You should either re-extract the files from the downloaded package or consult the complete Dokuwiki installation instructions

Attachment API Refactoring (RFC)


The current attachment API requires the client to explicitly check for the type of API used and then perform the actions by itself. This is sub-optimal for two reasons:

  1. Adding one extra attachment type will break all the existing code;
  2. It is cumbersome to use and leads to duplication.



  • Expose a high-level API to users , relieving them from having to query any configuration options


  • Any changes in functionality of the attachment API;
  • Adding new attachment backend implementations

Implementation considerations

The API should hide all details from the user and offer convenience methods such as

bug_attachment_get_contents ( $t_attachment_id )

bug_attachment_download_contents ( $t_attachment_id )

bug_attachment_put( $t_attachment_data )
