Installing Dokuwiki on Microsoft Azure Web App Service
DokuWiki runs just fine on Microsoft Azure Web App Service. Once you have created a web site you can upload via SFTP to the wwwroot and run the install.php script.
Securing Sensitive Folders
Before you get too far into production it makes sense to secure the bin, conf, data, and inc folders as suggested in the security guidelines. To do so create a web.config file with the following contents and upload it to the wwwroot folder:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <security> <requestFiltering> <hiddenSegments> <add segment="conf" /> <add segment="data" /> <add segment="inc" /> </hiddenSegments> </requestFiltering> </security> </system.webServer> </configuration>
Note that “bin” is not included in the list as it is already included in the protected folder list by IIS.
