    Default wwwrun only reading access and still beeing able use a Wiki?

    Hello everyone,

    I am supposed to build a Wiki on a server. So I installed Apache2 and faced a nice problem: Due to security guidelines, I am not allowed to give read/write access to wwwrun, only reading access. Is there a way to still be able to use a Wiki?

    Thanks for your help, I am happy about any help.


    Greatings,

    Isn't a wiki mostly a database driven application?
    Uploading images may be a different matter.

    Well, a Wiki can use either a database or a flatfile to save its content.

    Does this make a difference concerning the wwwrun process?

    Yes it does. wwwrun doesn't need file system write access to write to a
    database.

    Nice, thanks a lot. So I will just use a Wiki using a database instead of flatfiles.

    Have a nice weekend,
