What is a Wiki?

A wiki is a program that creates and allows the editing of web-pages. This is often used to create collaborative websites. WikiPedia is an example of a large multifunctional wiki. RoqWiki is an example of a simple more basic wiki, but both can be used for single or collaborative websites.

What is RoqWiki?

RoqWiki is a wiki written in Perl that converts text that is in Roqet Document Format into an HTML page. RoqWiki was inspired by pwyky, an Python wiki (but it contains no source-code from the pwyky project).


0. Download: roqwiki.pl

1. Create a new script-writable directory on your server

2. Upload roqwiki.pl to your server and rename it to index.cgi

3. Change permissions on index.cgi to 755

4. Create a .htaccess file in the same directory with the following contents:

DirectoryIndex index.cgi
Options -MultiViews
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /test
RewriteRule ^@[a-z]+/([A-Za-z0-9-]+)$ index.cgi [L]
RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9-]+)$ index.cgi [L]
RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9-]+)\.html$ - [L]

5. Browse to http://yourdomainname/yourdirectory/index.cgi

  • Note: when the index.cgi is run the first time, it will create the template files and stylesheet files for your later modification.
