Dokuwiki is a free and open source wiki software. It is written in PHP and doesn't require a database. Dokuwiki is popular because it is very simple, easy to use and has a very clean and readable syntax. It has built-in access control lists and supports over 50 languages.
In this tutorial, we will install DokuWiki on CentOS 7 server.
DokuWiki does not require any special hardware requirements. It can be installed on servers with a small amount of RAM. All the required dependencies will be installed throughout the tutorial. You will need a minimal installation of CentOS 7 with root access on it. If you are logged in as a non-root user, you can run sudo -i to switch to root user.
Before installing any package it is recommended that you update the packages and repository using the following command.
yum -y update
Once you have your system updated, you can proceed to install the Apache web server.
yum -y install httpd
DokuWiki can be installed on any version of PHP greater than 5.6. You can install PHP 7 for high performance. PHP 7 is not included in default YUM repository, hence you will need to add the Webtatic repository in your system. Webtatic repository requires EPEL repository to work. Run the following command to install EPEL repository.
yum -y install epel-releaseyum -y update
