    So I tried to implement the nice URLs and failed miserably, I now have a site that any button I click 404s with page not found and if I try to access /var/www/html/conf/dokuwiki.php and manually change the niceurl setting back to default it is already on 0 and 0

    ok.
  13. message at

    I did create the recommended .htaccess from the documentation
  14. message at
    Emmanuel_Chanel
    You need to put "AllowOverride All" between <Directory /var/www/html> and </Directory>
  15. message at
    Emmanuel_Chanel
    It enables .htaccess to work.
  16. message at
    n--bdev

    I'm not using virtualization
  20. message at

    Emmanuel_Chanel
    Did you put the line feeds?
  53. message at
    n--bdev
    was copying the extracted dokuwiki contents straight into /var/www/html acceptable?
  54. message at
    n--bdev
    there was / is not /var/www/html/dokuwiki dir
  55. message at
    n--bdev
    oh I did not add tabs for AllowOverride All, I will try that now
  56. message at
    Emmanuel_Chanel
    You need line feeds between <Directory /var/www/html> and AllowOverride / between AllowOverride and </Directory>
  57. message at
    Emmanuel_Chanel
    Maybe, your .htaccess is wrong...
  58. message at
    n--bdev

  64. message at
    n--bdev
    and I get the doku.php page
  65. message at
    n--bdev

  66. message at

    hey. isn't syncing conf and data folders enough to have multiple istances of the same doku? i get file conflicts so easy like that
  99. message at
    watom
    even without editing the same page. just refreshing
  100. message at

    i guess not running the istances at the same time can make the trick. but is a bit unhandy
