How to Setup Tiki Wiki on Ubuntu 12.10

Tiki Wiki is an easy to use content management system written in PHP, that can be used to create forums, blogs, file and image galleries, and so on.

To begin we will spin up a Ubuntu 12.10 x64 cloud server:

Step 1 - Install LAMP stack


export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
apt-get -y install apache2 mysql-server mysql-client php5 php5-mysql php5-gd

Step 2 - Create a Database and User for Tiki Wiki


Make sure to replacePassWordwith your own value below:
mysqladmin create tiki
mysql -Bse "create user 'tiki'@'localhost' identified by 'PassWord';"
mysql -Bse "grant all privileges on \`tiki\`.* to 'tiki'@'localhost';"
mysqladmin flush-privileges

Step 3 - Download Tiki Wiki


cd /root
wget "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/tikiwiki/Tiki_10.x_Sun/10.2/tiki-10.2.tar.gz"
tar xvfz tiki-10.2.tar.gz
rm -rf /var/www/* && cp -Rf /root/tiki-10.2/* /var/www/

Step 4 - Install Tiki Wiki


You can press Enter for all of these questions:
cd /var/www
bash setup.sh



Now you would need to proceed with installation from browser.
Navigate over to your cloud server's IP /tiki-install.php (http://198.199.88.201/tiki-install.php in our case):



Hit Continue, Accept License Agreement, and once you get to Database settings, put the following credentials:
Database type: MYSQL improved (mysqli)
Host name: localhost
Database name: tiki
User name: tiki
Password: PassWord (or one you specified in Step 2 above)



For database type, select InnoDB:
