MoinMoin on SME HOWTO

For any Wiki fans, this may interest you. I've played so far with TWiki, PHPWiki, and MoinMoin, and so far, MoinMoin is my favorite.

Here's how to install it on SME.

Thanks for the HowTo. I too think MoinMoin is pretty nice.

I created an iBay on SME 6.0.1 and ran through the HowTo. Everything seemed to go well, save for one problem: the browser complains with a 403 access error on moin.cgi.

The error log shows a python traceback:
Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/e-smith/files/ibays/wiki/cgi-bin/moin.cgi", line 32, in ?
    request = RequestCGI()

The iBay is set up like this:

All suggestions are most welcome.

MoinMoin 1.3.5 on SME 6.0.1 with Python2.4
« Reply #2 on: December 30, 2005, 07:34:06 PM »
Hello,

I've installed successfully a MoinMoin Wiki version 1.3.5 with a Python 2.4 on a SME 6.0.1.

Before posting an howto, if someone is interested, I want to know if installing the Python version 2.4 on this version of SME can create a security hole or a problem ?

I used the norlug python rpm.

Thanks in advance.

I have three versions of python installed on my SME server, to service different applications. In my installation of moinmoin per Mike's HowTo, I left the defaults as the paths were still valid.

I would be most grateful to learn how you succeeded with moinmoin.

Has anyone managed to successfully install a version of moinmoin later than the one in the HOWTO?  It's quite old at this stage.....

I have attempted and gotten lost with it.  I'm gettin "Access Denied" errors from apache.....

I can (and have) made Moin 1.4 work on SME6 .... BUT i could only make it run using the inbuilt python server (faster than putting it thru apache anyway!)  so your wiki appears at http://server:8000

Anyone have a "proper" solution?

owen
