DokuWiki Installer


This page assists in the first time installation and configuration of Dokuwiki. More info on this installer is available on it's own documentation page.

DokuWiki uses ordinary files for the storage of wiki pages and other information associated with those pages (e.g. images, search indexes, old revisions, etc). In order to operate successfully DokuWiki must have write access to the directories that hold those files. This installer is not capable of setting up directory permissions. That normally needs to be done directly on a command shell or if you are using hosting, through FTP or your hosting control panel (e.g. cPanel).

This installer will setup your DokuWiki configuration for ACL, which in turn allows administrator login and access to DokuWiki's admin menu for installing plugins, managing users, managing access to wiki pages and alteration of configuration settings. It isn't required for DokuWiki to operate, however it will make Dokuwiki easier to administer.

Experienced users or users with special setup requirements should use these links for details concerning installation instructions and configuration settings.

For security reasons this script will only work with a new and unmodified Dokuwiki installation. You should either re-extract the files from the downloaded package or consult the complete Dokuwiki installation instructions

PayPal Integration

Author: Victor Boctor Status: Work in Progress


Mantis supports the concept of sponsorship where users can put sponsorships on issues and developers can do the work and contact the users for the payments. Mantis also provides ways to track the sponsorships and depends on the developers to update the status of such sponsorships as unpaid, requested or paid. The exchange of PayPal email information, receiving the payments and update the sponsorship status is all done out of band.

The aim of this integration is to implement a richer integration which provides the following features:

1. Allow the sponsors to click on a button or icon in the issue and make the payment to the developer.

2. Auto-update the sponsorship based on the paypal notification that the payment is made.

3. Allow users to donate money to developers that have an email address registered.

4. Allow users to donate to a project.

Database Schema Change
