Small update to Step 1

I noticed a couple of small changes to the commands in Step 1, differences in bold

 

cp activate-wiki.tar.gz /var/lib/foswiki

cd /var/lib/foswiki

tar -zxvf activate-wiki.tar.gz

chown -R apache:apache data/

chown -R apache:apache pub/

  • I really liked the discussion about the way HP shares the Documentation of the ActrivateFramework.

    However it seems that there is no way around at the moment. But I wanted to avoid a VirtualMachine or whatever in my environment only for this content.

    So I downloaded here http://foswiki.org/Download.OtherFoswikiInstallers the Foswiki on a Stick version for Windows.

    However I did not want to have a USB Stick attached to my laptop all the time and searched for a way to bring up the wiki

    whilst having it on c:\ActivateWiki.

    To cut a long story short here my steps to success:

    - Download FosWikiOnAStick

    - Create a new folder on your HDD i.e c:\ActivateWiki

    - Extract the wiki files to c:\ActivateWiki

    - Download ActivateWiki

    - Extract Wiki somewhere

    - Copy everything under "data" to c:\ActivateWiki\foswiki\data

    - Copy everything under "pub" to c:\ActivateWiki\foswiki\pub

    - check the path of "start_foswiki.bat", should be c:\ActivateWiki

    - open cmd

    -- use subst to substitute a path to a drive letter

    -- .i.e. subst W: c:\ActivateWiki

    - Open w: in explorer and start the wiki "with start_foswiki.bat"

    - A browser should open and redirect you to the wiki landing page, i.e. http://localhost/foswiki/bin/view

    - to set an admin password go to http://localhost/foswiki/bin/configure and Check the box "Change password" on any page, and hit "Save changes" - you will be asked for a password.

    Maybe this saves the live of some USB sticks or SD-Cards - or helps ypu in en environment where you can not use both of them.
