DokuWiki Installation

There are separate upgrade instructions if you have an existing installation.

  • Step 0: Make sure your server meets the requirements.
  • Step 1: Download the newest release from the Download Page.
  • Step 2: Read the security page before you begin installing. Take it seriously. If in doubt, ask on the mailing list
  • Step 3: Unpack the distribution tarball and upload/copy the files to your webspace.
  • Step 4: Open the install.php file in your browser and follow the instructions. (For additional information, see the installer page.)
  • Step 5: Enjoy your DokuWiki install and browse through the manual to discover what you can do with it.

It Doesn't Work! Troubleshooting

If you've encountered problems installing DokuWiki, and you've carefully checked each of the steps above:

  • upload your files again - FTP corruption is a common cause for problems. Uploading a zip file and extracting on the server may be more reliable than uploading files individually
  • double and triple check file and folder permissions - this is a very common cause of problems
