       dokuwiki-addsite - Create a new site driven by DokuWiki


       dokuwiki-addsite {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.


           Name of the site to create. For a virtual host-based setup, it
           reflects the corresponding hostname. For instance, for a site

           site identifier. For instance, for a site accessible at an address

       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


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

       Please report any bug to the Debian BTS.
