= Steps to Install =
Derived from [http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=206853]

== Install Required Packages ==

Required packages are as follows:
 * python-moinmoin (Which should point to the proper python version)
 * apache2 webserver

{{{
sudo apt-get install python-moinmoin
sudo apt-get install apache2
}}}

== Create a Wiki With "wikiname" ==
Create a wiki called "wikiname" and set the permissions.

{{{
cd /usr/share/moin
sudo mkdir wikiname
sudo cp -R data wikiname
sudo cp -R underlay wikiname
sudo cp server/moin.cgi wikiname
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data wikiname
sudo chmod -R ug+rwx wikiname
sudo chmod -R o-rwx wikiname
}}}

== Configure MoinMoin to Locate "wikiname" ==
Relevant MoinMoin config files are located in /etc/moin/

Edit /etc/moin/farmconfig.py, and after the line {{{"wikis = ["}}} add your "wikiname". For a single instance wiki, this would entail renaming the following line from:

{{{
("mywiki", r".*"),
}}}

to

{{{
("wikiname", r".*"),
}}}

Copy the /etc/moin/mywiki.py file to /etc/moin/wikiname.py:
{{{
sudo cp /etc/moin/mywiki.py /etc/moin/wikiname.py
}}}

Edit the /etc/moin/wikiname.py and change all instances of mywiki to wikiname. In addition to this, change the data dir to point to your local installation of MoinMoin:

{{{
data_dir = '/usr/share/moin/wikiname/data'
}}}

== Make apache ready for your wiki ==
Insert into {{{/etc/apache2/sites-available/default}}}
(inside of the "{{{<VirtualHost *>}}}" tag)

{{{
### moin
ScriptAlias /wikiname "/usr/share/moin/wikiname/moin.cgi"
alias /wiki "/usr/share/moin/htdocs"
<Directory /usr/share/moin/htdocs>
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>
### end moin
}}}

Restart apache to apply your changes:
{{{
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
}}}

== See if it works ==
Go to your wiki's homepage:

http://127.0.0.1/wikiname
Or try the test command:

http://127.0.0.1/wikiname?action=test


= Next Steps =
== Security ==
You should probably set up MoinMoin:PasswordProtectedEditing and investigate other security stuff: MoinMoin:SecurityPolicy.

Create a Wiki With "wikiname"

sudo mkdir wikiname
sudo cp -R data wikiname
sudo cp -R underlay wikiname
sudo cp server/moin.cgi wikiname
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data wikiname
sudo chmod -R ug+rwx wikiname
sudo chmod -R o-rwx wikiname

Configure MoinMoin to Locate "wikiname"

Relevant MoinMoin config files are located in /etc/moin/

Edit /etc/moin/farmconfig.py, and after the line "wikis = [" add your "wikiname". For a single instance wiki, this would entail renaming the following line from:

("mywiki", r".*"),

to

("wikiname", r".*"),

Copy the /etc/moin/mywiki.py file to /etc/moin/wikiname.py:

sudo cp /etc/moin/mywiki.py /etc/moin/wikiname.py

Edit the /etc/moin/wikiname.py and change all instances of mywiki to wikiname. In addition to this, change the data dir to point to your local installation of MoinMoin:

data_dir = '/usr/share/moin/wikiname/data'

Make apache ready for your wiki

Insert into /etc/apache2/sites-available/default (inside of the "<VirtualHost *>" tag)

### moin
ScriptAlias /wikiname "/usr/share/moin/wikiname/moin.cgi"
alias /wiki "/usr/share/moin/htdocs"
<Directory /usr/share/moin/htdocs>
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>
### end moin

Restart apache to apply your changes:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

See if it works

Go to your wiki's homepage:

http://127.0.0.1/wikiname Or try the test command:

http://127.0.0.1/wikiname?action=test

Next Steps

Security

You should probably set up PasswordProtectedEditing and investigate other security stuff: SecurityPolicy.
