Subject: How to rename namespaces?
Hello!
How can I rename an existing namespace?
Wiki-pages are easy to rename, but namespaces?

TIA,
KKUE

suggestion: use the mv command (unix) to change the name of the directory corresponding to your namespace,
and then be sure to rename all links pointing to that namespace in your wiki.
i am not so sure it works so be careful ;)

> ok i tried for myself and it works fine, you have to be careful that the new directory structure has the right owner and group,
> as when installing the wiki in the first place (eg for me the user owning the files should be 'www' because the name apache uses)
> of course this only works if the data/pages are on a system you can access

hi,

Take a look at the plugin page on the official wiki (http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:dokuwiki)
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

I imagine he meant the pagemove plugin in the Admin Plugins. It's not clear if you can rename namespaces with it, I'm not sure. At the least you could create a new namespace and move the pages to it.
