Tiki Install Requirements! Please read!

posts: 2881 United Kingdom

Recently there have been a good number of posts to the forums about installation problems.

Before posting please check that your PHP memory_limit is set correctly for TikiWiki.

Please read this article for details on changing this value: http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-read_article.php?articleId=82

If you cant change the value and are suffering from blank pages or out of memory errors, its time to find a better Tiki Friendly host. See TikiFriendlyHosts and InstallRequirementsAdmin.

Thanks,

Damian

Hi,

First, I would to thank the developer for such great wiki :-) I've installed the latest version 1.8.4 (yesterday) & everything works fine except for image gallery section.

I've read the requirements & past posts but I can't seem to fine an answer. My server is linux based using PHP version 4.3.9 I have both GD and Imagick installed.

When I add 2 separate images one for thumbnail and one for original size, it only shows the big image. Here: http://www.youngskim.com/main/tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=2

I don't know if its problem with my server because I've also installed 4imagesGallery & thumbnail works fine with this application: http://www.youngskim.com/gallery/

Any idea how to fix this problem?
& I would like to know if anyone is avaliable for hire 2 fix this for me. I'm not familiar with scripting/server languages.

Thank you very much for your time.

Best Regards,
Young

Damian,
I'm really interested by this 8M problem, as you certainly got it.

1) I would say again that a try to insert:
ini_set('memory_limit' 16000000);
in front of tiki-setup.php is no bad try
when you cannot access php.ini
for sure it only works when php is configured
--enable-memory-limit
can be checked thru phpinfo
but often the case
Certainly some limit also exists on server side, what I ignore :-(

2) As said it exists some features in tikis script what doesn't help (e.g. globals)
I would really try to put some goals on it in 1.10

I'm a tiki newB so perhaps poor sense in that post :-)

ini_set('memory_limit', 16000000);

in front of tiki-setup.php is no bad try.

This is not actually linked to the --enable-memory-limit. Some hosting providers will prevent you from changing the value completely.

However, its worth a try, so others, please report.

Personally I prefer it in the .htaccess file so to not hack up a handful of files with the patch.

Well, I got the message that for BlueHost everythign should work.

But can't this 2 year old message be updated with ALL KINDS of installation info?

Probably a hughe lot of problems went through this forum?
I suppose no-one has time to integrate them into one piece of info, with geberal links and links to sperate problems like forum-threads?

Best, M.

Hiya,

Does this apply to when you're installing it on windows desktop as an offline/private wiki?

cheers,

Yes, a certain amount of memory is needed for php script execution no matter what the context of the server is, public or private intranet. But it shouldn't be a problem. I run Tiki on my laptop, using Reactor Server, which is a Windows apache/mysql/php package. The default memory limit wss 32MB, and I never had to change it, as Tiki runs fine. If you need more, though, it's easy to edit your apache/bin/php.ini file. (You don't need to add physical (hardware) memory, just increase the figure for memory allotment in the configuration file.

Let's be frank,

I read all that stuff and I don't know why it's there! Even with settings in the php.ini as follows there will be issues.

max-execution_time =30
max-input = 60
mem-limit =128M

Tikiwiki 2 sucks.

I've used mediawiki a lot. I'm the first time user of tikiwiki. Unfortunately i couldn't completemy installation at all sad. I have downloaded the latest ver - 2.2, on to my internal server where the mediawiki is already running (i mean the apache and sql are all fine there). Have changed all the dirs and files with

chown -R apache:apache *
created the db as required by the tikiwiki

from my browser, i access the tiki-install.php. I get an error that templates_c dir does not exists and when i checked it on the server its not present ! I mkdir templates_c and give all the rights using chmod 777 templaces_c. After that if I access the tiki-install.php it just goes blank ! nothing happens further... Whats the problem ? please let me
know as soon as possible.

PHP 5.2.4
mysql 5.0.45
memory_limit in php.ini is 32M

I deleted the 2.2 version, downloaded the ver 2.0. Again it reported that templates_c is not preset, after i created such a directory, the setup went smoothly... I think there is some problem with 2.2 installation. Now i'll try updating 2.0 to 2.2.. lets see what happens. If it doesnt then i'll be just happy with 2.0 itself.
