Re: Self-hosted DokuWiki Software Import
Over the last few weeks I have learned a lot about Dokuwiki.
Unfortunately the editing process seemed complicated to people, even though it's pretty basic WYSIWYG editing. Plus with nearly 900 pages it put a bit of a load on the shared and leased server.
So I once again went through the various pieces of Open Source and free wiki software and kept coming back to Dokuwiki.
The nice thing about Dokuwiki is that the wiki pages are stored in .txt files that you can easily FTP in and out of it. Find that you need a tweak on a couple hundred pages? No problem, make the changes to the local copies with the search and replace on an editor across all of the files that need editing, and then re-upload.
I tried to keep some notes on the process but unfortunately I didn't keep very good ones this time around. If others are interested I can post my notes here and some other observations on conversion.
I have much more to fix, like formatting and such but got the basics done. I am running it on a few different servers for testing - my own, a friend's, and a couple free hosting sites even. Here's one on a free site as a test - https://jeffcowiki.thats.im/doku.php/jefferson_county
