DokuWiki System Requirements

To run your own copy of DokuWiki you will need the following:

1. Webserver supporting PHP

DokuWiki will run on any web server, that supports PHP. Most users use Apache but many others including IIS, lighttpd, nginx, and Abyss are known to work.

When using as a desktop wiki you can also use QuickPHP (webserver and PHP in one program).

2. PHP version 5.2 or later

PHP needs to be at least Version 5.2.

For resizing images either the PHP GD extension or Image Magick should be installed.

DokuWiki should work in PHP's Safe Mode, but depending on your hosting configuration you may need to use the safemodehack option.

NOTE PHP 5.5 release for IIS7 does have GD2 installed by default, so you won't need to worry about it neither about SafeMode which is deprecated since PHP 5.4 1).

The pcre library in PHP needs to be compiled with UTF-8 support. You can test this by executing pcretest -C and looking for “UTF-8 support” (or “UTF-8 and UTF-16 support”) and “Unicode properties support”. 2)

3. A recent browser

Any modern browser should work, but check our browser recommendations.

2) If UTF-8 support is missing, snippets in the search results will be missing and when you follow links in the search results the pages will be empty.
