Subject: Exploring the Tech
I've recently started running dokuwiki on OpenBSD's httpd server. (That configuration can be posted if anyone is interested). The forum seems like a potentially useful resource to accompany the manual while I tinker with the software.

Maybe it would be usefull to add it to https://www.dokuwiki.org/install#webserver_specifics. So everyone can see it.

I am happy to share the configuration that I've come up with but I've only been running the software for a few days. It's very possible that I've overlooked something important. Before the configuration instructions make it into the Installation Wiki (under the guise of best practices), it seems prudent to post it here first and discuss the various issues & methods, and live with it for a while and see if any problems emerge. For example (this thread probably isn't the place for it but...), the relevant lines of my httpd.conf file look like this:

extip="10.0.0.240"
chroot "/var/www"
logdir "/var/www/logs"
prefork 4
server "issri.deusexmachina.org" {
        listen on $extip port 80
        location "/*.php" {
                directory index "index.php"
                directory no auto index
                fastcgi socket "/run/php-fpm.sock"
        }
        location "/data/*" {
                block
        }
        location "/conf/*" {
                block
        }
        location "/bin/*" {
                block
        }
        location "/inc/*" {
                block
        }
        root "/dokuwiki"
        directory index "index.php"
        directory no auto index
}

This is a bit different from other web servers and there might be security, functionality, or efficiency issues that I haven't yet noticed. After I have a better understanding of the wiki software and the server issues, it seems likely that a clean OpenBSD configuration and a clear, concise how-to could be composed for the Installation Wiki.
