       dokuwiki-addsite - Create a new site driven by DokuWiki


       dokuwiki-addsite [options] {SITE_NAME}


       DokuWiki is a standards compliant, simple to use wiki mainly aimed at creating
       documentation of any kind.

       dokuwiki-addsite creates the file hierarchy and configuration required to define a new
       site driven by the installed DokuWiki engine.


           Do create any administrator user and do not ask for a password.

       -h, --help
           Show a help message and exit.

           Name of the site to create. For a virtual host-based setup, it reflects the
           corresponding hostname. For instance, for a site accessible at an address such as
 , it can be either,
 , or even

           For a directory or htaccess-based setup, this is the corresponding site identifier.
           For instance, for a site accessible at an address such as
 , rewritten by the web server as
           doku.php?animal=project, it is simply project.


       The site configuration is stored in /etc/dokuwiki/farm/SITE_NAME/, and the data is stored
       in /var/lib/dokuwiki/farm/SITE_NAME/, as indicated in the site configuration.

       In a virtual host-based setup, if you need to make a given site accessible at several
       URLs, you can symlink its configuration directory to another name (it is not necessary to
       symlink the data directory).

       If you need to rename a site, you can rename the configuration and data directories, and
       edit the configuration to point to the new data directory.


       No check is done against the SITE_NAME, just avoid names like ../../../etc.

       Please report any bug to the Debian BTS.
