Last year, I migrated my wiki website from another wiki engine to Dokuwiki. One of the motivation for this migration was the fact that Dokuwiki is kept up to date with, I feel, a large community of fans ! I really appreciate Dokuwiki and I started to develop and custom my own website.
However, with the recent updates "Hogfather" I realized I was certainly doing something wrong... Since as soon the update was done, I had lost all my configuration files... replaced during the update.
So, my question is: are there rules that one can follow to avoid having to rebuild all the website from scratch at each update ?
More specifically, I had manually modified a large quantity of files, including:
/conf/mime.conf (how come this one is replaced by the update process ?)
a number of php files in /lib/tpl/bootstrap3/...
All of those files (to the exception, I believe, of userstyle.css) were replaced during the update process.
Thank you !
