Configuration Setting: license
This setting configures the license under which the content of your wiki can be distributed. The licenses you can choose in this setting are configured in the
conf/license.php. By default it contains a list of Creative Commons licenses and GNU FDL.
- Type: String
You should think a bit about the proper license when you start your wiki, because changing it later may require the consent of all previous contributors to your wiki.
To disable this feature completely, e.g. for a private, internal wiki, just select no license (or set the config option to an empty string).
eg - add this line to your
$conf['license'] = '';
Adding a new license
To avoid problems on upgrading your Wiki later you should not edit the
conf/license.php file directly but create a new
conf/license.local.php file to add your entries.
The file should look like this:
<?php $license['license-name'] = array( 'name' => 'Full Name of the License', 'url' => 'http://example.com/license', );
license-name from the table
license is the short name of the chosen license as it is used in the config setting value
$conf['license'] mentioned above.
For each license an image named like the short name (ending in
.png) should be placed in
lib/images/license/button (80×15 pixel) and
lib/images/license/badge (88×31 pixel).
