Subject: wiki as a user on a server?
Hello everyone,

I am supposed to implement a wiki on a server, which has certain security guidelines such as: wwwrun is not allowed to write on the server. Well, since there is no sense in having a wiki, whithout beeing able to change or add information, I would like to know, if there is a possibility of making a new user called wiki, who does all the changes on the server. This would be allowed by our security guidelines, so I could easily use dokuwiki.

Thanks for your help,


Luci

You can run PHP as (Fast-)CGI using a different userid than the webserver.
