Details about this wiki installation
This page describes details about this wiki installation, e.g. location of
- The server
wiki.lyx.org is an alias for
- The main wiki directory on
- The wiki engine is located on
- The "database" with wiki pages is located on
- The local configurations is primarily controlled by this file on
- "Public" images (LyX logo etc) are located on
aussie under the following directory
- The directory for uploaded files on
- The file manager (IPFM) is installed on
Note that the sticky for group permissions are set for some of the
directories. This is so that the "user" which runs apache will own certain
files, e.g. the uploaded files. If this isn't the case, we can't use for
instance the file manager to delete files.
So if you manually copy a file into
uploads/, remember that nobody else
will (probably) be able to delete it etc.
Users that belong to the group
wiki should be able to manipulate
uploaded files and the wiki page database directly.

drwxrwxr-x 6 chr wiki 4096 8 feb 12.18 /home/lyx/www/pmwiki/pub/
Question: Why does
chr own pub/?
Answer (Christian): I have no idea.. but as long as the directory belongs
to the group
wiki, it shouldn't matter.
