I wouldn't recommend that, as most path names assume a local
installation. You could probably fix that by changing the calls to
So if you unpack "wiki.tgz" in the runtime directory, you could just
start it as
$ ./dbg wiki/main.l lib/too.l -main -go
The problem is the initial database. For that, a file "wiki/init.l" is
included that creates a minimal set of objects (Roles and users).
So for the first start, I would recommend to do
$ mkdir -p db/wiki
$ ./dbg wiki/main.l lib/too.l -main wiki/init.l -go
Then connect your browser to DB maintenance page at
log in as "admin" / "admin", and create the first page manually.
I just noticed, there was an error in "wiki/init.l". The first user
didn't have the correct admin role. Please download the "wiki.tgz" once
Hope I didn't forget anything.
