Comments & Questions about this Historical Document Topic

The Enabling Authentication of Users section says that Redirect /urlpath/to/TWiki/index.html must be set. But in the install process there is no mention to uploading this file (which is included in the distribution files), or where to put it. I supouse that as it is going to be redirected it is no relevant if it exists.

In the Enabling Authentication of Users, the use of the access.conf for the twiki/bin directory is only for root owned wikis.

  • DONE I made those changes above. The index.html, docs, and other stuff in the root TWiki dir are properly noted in the File System Appendix, but it's a different table here. As noted, pretty obvious, but there's a use for the first level index.html. Also there's now a separate page for hosted accounts installations, including RCS instructions, that just has to be checked and moved over from Codev - then the root and virtual instructions can be completely separate, which should make things that much clearer all round. Thanks! -- MikeMannix - 27 Jan 2002

Fixed typo and moved embedded comments to end.

See SettingLibPath for some discussion of the lib path issue.

I will not change the date on this document from 01-Dec-2001 in the first paragraph until some has taken the time to review it for changes for 01-Feb-2003 (BeijingRelease).

WebChangesAlerts: I followed the instructions on this page when installing TWiki for the first time but was perplexed as to why WebChangesAlerts were not working as the instructions seemed to imply that it should work out-of-the-box. When I looked into the problem I found TWikiSiteTools which contains the missing information I needed to complete the set up for WebChangesAlerts, but there is no link to this information from this page. There is now smile

Thanks Tim, you read my mind, however I didn't see any change above. I've added a little note about this in Step four above.

-- GrantBow - 09 May 2003

Can we change Step4 to be clearer about where to edit the settings? I think it should say something like:

From your web browser, edit the TWikiPreferences topic in the TWiki:TWiki web (by pointing your browser at:
) to set the WIKIWEBMASTER email address, and [etc]

because the location of the webs and the mapping of real Wiki pages has not really be explained in the install docs up to this point.

Thanks Hugh for pointing this out, is fixed.

-- PeterThoeny - 03 Jun 2003

Fixed link to htaccess documentation at Enabling Authentication of Users, which was incorrect.

-- NinoBolis - 11 Feb 2003

I added an Attention note on the TWikiOnApache2dot0Hangs issue.
