Varies somewhat from the setup described on [http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/] homepage,

Warning /!\ Note: This guide has been adjusted to accommodate for a custom wiki name. If you spot an error, please fix it.

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 PasswordProtectedEditing and investigate other security stuff: SecurityPolicy.
