Issues Installing Activate Documents on an Existing Foswiki

We use Foswiki for our SOC wiki, which is nice since I have an existing wiki, but there are a few places where IMHO HP colors outsides the lines and messes  things up.

99% of the content goes nicely into  the ArcSightActivate Web, but there are two topics, and a few attachment files that get written/overwritten in the Main & System webs.

Not sure how easy it would be, but it would be nice to have future tarballs only write into the ArcSightActivate directories.

To save you from recreating the wheel, are the files.

data/Main/WebPreferences.txt

This overwrites your existing WebPreferences, which is fine if you want an HP logo on everything.  Simple solution, revert to last version after install

data/System/WebTopBar.txt

This overwrites your existing WebTopbar, again, revert to the last version

pub/System/imgs/*

Not part of the standard distribution, so shouldn't overwrite anything

pub/System/fonts/*

Not part of the standard distribution, so shouldn't overwrite anything

pub/System/fonts/.htaccess 

Check your website config and make sure this doesn't mess up security etc.

pub/System/PatternSkinTheme/hp_foswiki_noframe.css

Not part of standard config....and named decently.  (unless of course you work for a company called hp)

pub/System/PatternSkinTheme/fonts.css

Not part of the standard config.

Thanks for this write-up, Don. Activate is coming along nicely, but there is still much to do. Hopefully this is sorted out in future wiki packages, but in the meantime I appreciate the details you put here.

Hi Don,

Last weeks release fixes all those issues.  Sorry about the headache!  Right now it is completely standalone and we won't stomp on your stuff outside the Activate web. 

Later this week, I'll push up another update with a methodology that allows you to include your own topics within pages of the Activate Web.  Check back by Friday.

John,

  Thanks for the update and the changes so we can add our own content to the documentation.
