Subject: dokuwiki to database?
Hello,
my wiki is getting bigger and bigger and so slowly I have concerns because everything is backed up in files and not in database.
Has any of you completely converted your Dokuwiki to a database, e. g. MariaDB ?

Why do you have concerns that your data is held and backed up in files rather than a database?  For some (I suspect many here) people that is a definite plus.  No DBM to worry about either during backup or recovery.

Because I hear again and again that one should rather use a database for it

Where did you hear that or read?

Have you already read your German thread on the topic?
By Patreon.com a few eurons can be fed into the code phasers of
the DokuWiki engine. Besides, Andi's posts are worth reading.

Interesting link Andi, I hadn't seen that.

When I was selecting a wiki for storing system management type information for a cluster, I had a similar thought process.  An inexperienced replacement system manager wouldn't need the problems of getting a DBMS running in order to access the information on getting the system going.  The physical documentation directed an admin to where the files were, find(1) and grep(1) would be sufficient to start the recovery procedure.
