Subject: New Dokuwiki User
I've had a family genealogy site up since 1996.  I am now using Dokuwiki to replace the "Registry" function that lists people and their lineage/story.  My goal is to someday let the users themselves "self" upload and edit their section - but for the moment I'm too concerned about hackers and spammers so all editing and uploading is done by me.

I have not gone "live" with the Dokuwiki site yet, for several reasons.  The test site lives on another domain within the same server.

 - I don't yet know what security items I'll need other than Captcha - nor how to install any of them.
 - I don't yet know enough about Dokuwiki to transfer it from the "test" domain to the real domain (directory structure, where data is, etc.)
 - I don't yet know what links to create within the existing Registry to point at the Dokuwiki.  Yes, I'm sure it's simple, but I have zillions of them around the website pointing to the Registry.

And lastly, I don't yet know how to upgrade, install plugins, themes and so on. 

I run both Windows 10 and Linux (Ubuntu) environments.
