Subject: Into which directory on the webserver should the wiki be installed?
Into which directory on the webserver should the wiki be installed? 

I placed the files into the folder /public_html/Wiki/
I also set the permissions to full (666 or 777) for all contents of that folder and subdirectories (using Filezilla).

Now, when trying to run it something is not working:
(1) http://www.myweb.com/public_html/Wiki/doku.php gives a 'Not Found' error.
(2) http://www.myweb.com/Wiki/doku.php gives an 'Internal Server Error'

Obviously something wrong here. Did I perhaps put the files in the wrong area?

Sorry, this is probably a really idiotic newbie question. It's taken about 6hrs to get this far so I'm still at the bottom of the learning curve (looks like cliff from this newbie's perspective), and there is probably something simple that I'm missing.

Thanks
Derek

You might be better off to rename the /Wiki/ folder to /wiki/ - that is, all in lower case.

Mixed case URLs can cause all sorts of issues with search engine indexing - especially Duplicate Content issues.

In your FTP view, you'll likely install it in to:  /public_html/wiki/


That will be exposed on the web as: http://www.example.com/wiki/doku.php
