How to install DokuWiki

You can install DokuWiki by downloading an official package from here and start the installation process. But, this can be hard if you are not familiar with how to install something from a script on the web-hosting.

You can also install DokuWiki from your cPanel automatically with Softaculous application. You only need to have hosting with cPanel and domain for your Dokuwiki.

Pay special attention to choosing the right internet protocol, because Adriahost now offer free SSL certificates and you can choose to install DokuWiki with https:// secured protocol.

If you want to install your wiki in the root of your domain, leave the field In Directory empty. If you want to install your wiki in some folder like your-domain/wiki, you need to write wiki into the field In Directory.
