I just moved my DokuWiki installation (http://www.webmontag.de
) from my old to my new server.
Here's what I have done so far:
1. Backup old files
Old installation was DokuWiki Release 2005-09-22d.
Followed instructions here: http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:install:moreupgradedetailhosted
Backed up the following (via FTP to my local machine):
* /data dir (except data/locks dir due to file ownership issues)
2. Install newest version of DokuWiki on new server
This part worked without any problems.
3. Restore settings
I uploaded the backed-up versions of these files. This seems to have worked as well, as I was able to log in using my old credentials (username/password).
4. Set permissions
Did this according to the instructions.
5. Restore pages
On the new server, I was not able to access (or delete) the /data/cache dir. I simply renamed it and then was able to to upload all files in my backup.
I noticed two issues:
a) Start page is not writeable
b) When I click on "recent changes" I get the following message and the list of pages does not show up:
warning: file(/path/data/meta/_dokuwiki.changes) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /path/inc/changelog.php on line 107
6. Set more permissions
Pages weren't writeable at first, so I had to set a few more permissions:
/data/pages dir (files and subdirectories, I just took the settings from my old server)
On the start page, the do=check gives the following:
DokuWiki version: Release 2006-11-06
PHP version 5.2.1
Changelog is writable
Datadir is writable
Attic is writable
Mediadir is writable
Cachedir is writable
Lockdir is writable
conf/users.auth.php is writable
mb_string extension is available and will be used
Debugging support is disabled
Your current permission for this page is 4
The current page is writable by the webserver
The current page is writable by you
7. Do a test edit
However, the recent changes page still showed only the one single test edit I just did a few minutes ago.
I found the above forum entry: http://forum.dokuwiki.org/post/979
I added this line to my local.php
$conf['template'] = 'default';
Problem still persists.
My question: How can I restore my wiki's history and make the "old" recent changes show up?
Thanks for your help. I wasn't able to find any more info on the DokuWiki site or in the forum, but feel free to point me to any documentation there is.
