Hi everyone 🙂
For a while now I miserably fail at moving my wiki to a different server.
The current server is running Greebo on a Synology box. It uses the Dokuwiki package provided by Synology. However, this package is no longer supported in the next version of DSM (DSM7). I didn't upgrade the DW package to the latest version (recently provided by Synology for DSM6) since I fear that it would break something and I wouldn't know how to fix it (see below). For the same reason, some of the plugins that are currently installed cannot be simply updated in the Extension Manager (not compatible with PHP5.6, I guess). WebStation is currently configured as using Apache2.2 and PHP5.6. The idea is to move that setup to another Synology box and manually configure everything in order to NOT rely on the DW package from Synology any longer and be able to upgrade PHP.
Now I cannot play around with the current setup since many users access it daily. So my plan is to copy all the files from the /web/dokuwiki folder onto the new server ("clone" the wiki) and then play around on this copy until I get the right settings.
When I do this right now, I can access the cloned wiki at https://ServerIP/dokuwiki/doku.php no problem
WebStation is configured as using Apache2.4 and PHP5.6. I am not using the DW package from Synology.
If I switch the settings in WebStation from PHP5.6 to PHP7, the wiki is no longer accessible (white screen)
If I use the upgrade plugin in order to upgrade from Greebo the Hogfather, the wiki is no longer accessible (white screen)
If I upgrade a plugin (for instance Bureaucracy) from the Extension Manager, the wiki is no longer accessible (white screen)
I tried disabling all the plugins that can be disabled, switch from PHP5.6 to 7 in WebStation and then access the wiki in order to see if I get anything working. The idea here was then to re-enable plugins one by one in order to determine which one(s) requires PHP5.6 and is/are incompatible with PHP7. However, even after disabling all the plugins that I can disable in the Extension Manager, switching the settings in WebStation from PHP5.6 to PHP7, -> the the wiki is no longer accessible (white screen).
Can anyone help me out with a strategy to determine the right way to achieve what I am trying to do?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
