Installing dokuwiki on CentOS 6

This writeup is a modification from Installing dokuwiki on CentOS   Step 1: Get the latest dokuwiki from
# wget
# tar -xzvf dokuwiki-stable.tgz
Step 2: Move dokuwiki files to apache directory
# mv dokuwiki-stable /var/www/html/docuwiki
Step 3: Set Ownership and Permission for dokuwiki
# chown -R apache:root /var/www/html/dokuwiki
# chmod -R 664 /var/www/html/dokuwiki/
# find /var/www/html/dokuwiki/ -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;
Step 4: Continue the installation Ignore the security warning, we can only move the data directory after installing. fill out form and click save Step 5: Delete install.php for security
# rm /var/www/html/dokuwiki/install.php
Step 6: Create and move data, bin (CLI) and cond directories out of apache directories for security Assuming apache does not access /var/www, only /var/www/html and /var/cgi-bin secure dokuwiki (or use different directory):
# mkdir /var/www/dokudata
# mv /var/www/html/dokuwiki/data/ /var/www/dokudata/
# mv /var/www/html/dokuwiki/conf/ /var/www/dokudata/
# mv /var/www/html/dokuwiki/bin/ /var/www/dokudata/
Step 7: Update dokuwiki where the conf directory
# vim /var/www/html/dokuwiki/inc/preload.php
// DO NOT use a closing php tag. This causes a problem with the feeds,
// among other things. For more information on this issue, please see:

* Note the comments why there is no closing php Step 8: Update dokuwiki where the data directory is
# vim /var/www/dokudata/conf/local.php
$conf['savedir'] = '/var/www/dokudata/data/';
Step 9: Set permission for dokuwiki again for the new directory with same permissions
# chown -R apache:root /var/www/html/dokuwiki
# chmod -R 664 /var/www/html/dokuwiki/
# find /var/www/html/dokuwiki/ -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;

# chown -R apache:root /var/www/dokudata
# chmod -R 664 /var/www/dokudata/
# find /var/www/dokudata/ -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;
  Step 10: Go to wiki
