Subject: Changing IP address [SOLVED]
Hi,

At the moment my Dokuwiki address reads as http://[server IP address]/dokuwiki. I wonder if it's possible to change the IP address part to something like https://mywiki/dokuwiki, as an example? And can Dokuwiki work with https? I looked through some of the documentation on this topic but not sure I fully understand it. Any clarification would be appreciated, thanks :)
Oh, and I followed the first section of this: https://www.dokuwiki.org/rewrite but all it did was make my Wiki inaccessible and removed some icons.

You need to configure your address translation.
1) For local use:
1a) If you run your own DNS server - set a CNAME to point to the server's FQDN.
1b) else - set up a local name.  Under Linux/Unix this is done by editing the /etc/hosts file, for instance adding the line:
192.168.x.y  mywiki
2) External access - See your ISP
