Reini, Carsten, Steve, Jeff -
Check out these articles on Business Week magazine. Corporate use of
wiki's for documentation should increase dramatically in the coming
months and years - we need to get phpwiki strong and stable (and NOT
too bloated), to attract attention and positive mention in this arena!
Here in our wiki environment, we're still stuck on my modified 1.3.4
for my 100-person team... we need a new version, but I too am having
little success in trying to get a stable recent release up - I
downloaded 1.3.10 and it has major problems with the include_paths.
This time, I get a fatal error:
Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'DB.php'
/Library/WebServer/Documents/phpwiki/lib/WikiDB/backend/PearDB.php on line 7
I tried all the options, like
INCLUDE_PATH = ".:/Library/WebServer/Documents/phpwiki" and
SCRIPT_NAME = /Library/WebServer/Documents/phpwiki/index.php
DATA_PATH = /phpwiki
PHPWIKI_DIR = /Library/WebServer/Documents/phpwiki
I DON'T wanna have to change all the include statements to
absolutes... what's going on here? In the past, i could count on it
'finding itself', etc., without such deep tweaks - but now, it's
fatal error city.
I know many fixes are coming, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, let's
concentrate next on bulletproofing, avoiding feature creep and easy
deployment! Phpwiki is the best wiki out there, can be GREAT for
corporate use with a few mods like pdfs, includes and toc, but the
expectations for easy install are high indeed! Otherwise, open source
looks fragile to finicky corporate types... I'll continue to hone my
skills on the code base, but it's very difficult to familiarize
yourself with the code when ou cannot get the wiki to work at all...
