* WiGit: A Git-based Wiki *
***************************
About
-----
WiGit is a simple Wiki written in PHP, using Git (http://git.or.cz/) as
a backend for tracking changes. Besides Git, this wiki makes use of Textile
(http://textile.thresholdstate.com/) for marking up text.
Features
--------
* Very simple and light
* Easily customizable using themes
* Extensive syntax for marking up text (using Textile)
* Full history tracking support
* Basic support for users/authors, by using the HTTP authentication headers
to extract the user.
* Support for pretty URLs (using URL rewriting)
Requirements
------------
* Webserver
* PHP4
* Git
Installation
------------
* Put the WiGit dir in some place where the webserver can find it
* Make sure there's a 'data' subdir, and that it is writable by the webserver
* Copy config.php.sample to config.php, and edit config.php to reflect your
local settings
* Surf to the wigit URL, and you should start by editing the front page
For URL rewriting, change the SCRIPT_URL to be the base URL prefix (as
is shown in the config file), and add the necessary URL rewrite rules for
your webserver. E.g.,
* For Apache, add the following to .htaccess in your wigit install dir:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wigit/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (.*) /wigit/index.php?r=$1 [L]
</IfModule>
* For lighttpd, add the following to your config file:
url.rewrite-once (
"^/wigit/templates/(.*)" => "$0",
"^/wigit(.*)" => "/wigit/index.php?r=$1",
)
(where /wigit is replaced by your own base url)
For user support, configure your webserver to require authentication for
the wigit install dir. E.g.
* For Apache, add the following to .htaccess in your wigit install dir:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "My WiGit"
AuthUserFile /path/to/passwords/file
Require valid-user
* For lighttpd, add the following to your config file:
auth.backend = "htdigest"
auth.backend.htdigest.userfile = "/path/to/htdigest/file"
auth.require = (
"/wigit" => (
"method" => "digest",
"realm" => "My WiGit",
"require" => "valid-user",
)
)
