Cannot get Wiki setup right

I searched the forums for my problem. Unless I missed something I could not find it.
I have a new install of Blogcms and everything works ok i.e Articles, Forum, Gallery, News, Contact. However I cannot get the Wiki to work. I get this error:

DokuWiki Setup Error

The datadir does not exist, isn't accessable or writable. Check your config and permission settings!

I have All my permissions set as per documention 777 etc. But I alway's get this error when I click on the wiki on top of the blog.

I checked and the Data directory Exists under the Wiki dir, It is chmoded to 777
I am confused as to why I still get this error.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

Did you "chmod" also wiki/data/pages and other subdirectories? There was huge change in Dokuwiki, and docs was not updated fully yet.

Try also setting manually $conf['basedir'] = "..."; in wiki/conf/dokuwiki.php.

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

Thanks fo the quick response. Data and all sub-dir's and files under it are at 777 (Just checked them and they are all already set with this chmod)

HOWEVER I set manually  $conf['basedir'] = "/home/*****/public_html/blogcms/wiki/"; in wiki/conf/dokuwiki.php.
And it gives me a page without errors. I do not know what it is for yet but I will figure that out as I go along.
Again, Thanks - You solved my problem

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

Dokuwiki PHP script tries to get basedir by itself, but webhosters can prevent this query, and they sometimes (foolishly, imho) do.. Thus the only way to make it work is to provide correct path yourself.

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

Hi,

I tried the above change to dokuwiki.php, but I still get the same problem when I try to access the Wiki page - Internal Server Error.

Everything else looks fine - only the Wiki doesn't work.

Not essential as I already have a separate Wiki, but it would be nice to get it working anyway please.

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

I managed to find the server log.

It says:

........../user/htdocs/blog/wiki/.htaccess: order not allowed here


Does this mean I don't have the correct permissions set?

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

I checked the settings in my dokuwiki.php and compared with the Splitbrain instructions. I am fairly sure the basedir and baseurl are correct now.

However, I still get the same error message, both on the Browser (Internal Server Error) when I try to get into the Wiki page and in the server.log file (.htaccess: order not allowed here).

Everything else on the Blog seems to work - just the Wiki fails.

Re: Cannot get Wiki setup right

Just delete the .htaccess in /wiki directory
