I use it for "meta" stuff like directions on how to add and move pages, for pages about the wiki like stats, and so forth...anything that is about the particular wiki installation and not the topic of the wiki.

Is there a chance that the server was really busy (lot of requests to Apache or something) when the error occurred? Does it happen every time or just occasionally?

Check the permissions for the directory /var/www/myserver.com/public_html/data/locks/ and make sure it's writable.

I guess the worst-case scenario option is to simply build a new wiki and dump all the old wiki's pages and media files into it, run the search indexer and reinstall your extensions and styles, and re-make your ACL rules if applicable.

A super easy way to do this is to install this extension: https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:styling

Then you can use it to customize your style, including link colors, without having to edit any files.

This is only semi-related, but from an accessibility standpoint you will probably want to give low-vision users a way to reach the links that doesn't involve the image map.

Sorry, all of my sites are on VPS servers (I'm currently using Dreamhost and have been happy with them) and you're probably looking for a regular shared hosting provider to save money so I'm not sure my experiences are relevant.

If you want, I would happily install Dokuwiki on your server for you for free.

I don't understand why anyone would use a third party software to install Dokuwiki when Dokuwiki is so simple to install. If you eliminated the requirement for Softaculous by installing the Dokuwiki software yourself (which takes just a couple minutes) you would have a lot more options to choose from.

You can easily delete pages by editing them and then removing the entire contents and saving the empty page.

Edit your start page or whatever page you're on and make a link to
[[wikidna:start]]
And see if that takes you where you want to go.

What I do on my wiki is I have a namespace called WIP (for works-in-progress) where users can develop their articles. When they're done, they get reviewed by the staff and moved to their permanent namespaces using the Move plugin. The WIP: namespace is set via ACL to give read permissions only to registered users so they public (and search robots) can't see the unfinished/unapproved articles.

I, too, am very interested in a plugin like this for my RPG.

For far I've been building and using PHP-based ones but having one that is in the wiki would really open the door for my users to easily make their own random tables.
