ikiwiki on server one?





simplyw00x
Dear admins!

I have spent days pulling my hair out, trying to find a decent wiki or cms that properly deals with LaTeX[0] (it's not just maths fonts, people...). My search came to an end wih ikiwiki[1], but it's literally the only one I could find. It doesn't have any dependencies server 1 doesn't have --- it basically just uses perl. I ask if could be installed globally more for convenience than anything else.

Thanks!

can't you just use mediawiki or some other wiki written in php?
I don't think a lot of people will use this functionality if it's installed, and it would just add more workload to the admins or maybe only Bondings because is has to be maintained.

Because not single one, quite literally not a single one, has proper LaTeX support (LaTeX *is* installed on server 1). Were there one, I would jump on it instantly. ikiwiki doesn't really need much maintenance, and that such as it does could be handled by the package manager (IIRC server 1 is running an RPM-based linux distro).

Ok, I just spent 3 hours trying to do it myself, and ran into the following problems:
* with no shell acces, you can't really use CPAN (even though it's installed)
* for some reason, all network connections from the frihost server fail (i.e. wget in a PHP system() fails)
* I keep getting 500 errors (and no, it's seriously not a permissions problem) but I can't view any useful logs.

Frihost, HELP!

we can't really do a lot. We need Bondings to do this and since he makes about 10 posts a month I think it'll take a while to read the documentation about this and install it.

I don't think he'll install something without even reading through the documentation so it will take at least an hour.

RPMs available. Frihost server 1 runs CentOS. CentOs is RPM-based. ikiwiki needs no admin configuration (it runs just fine by default, and users can follow the setup guide [http://ikiwiki.info/setup/]). I suggest more like 2 minutes (assuming nothing goes wrong, and the needed perl modules are installed) than 1 hour.
