This page describes how to install ScrewTurn Wiki using the file-system data storage.

If you plan to use ScrewTurn Wiki in a web farm, please use the SQL Server-based version.

  1. Download the File-System Data Storage ZIP package from the download page
  2. Verify that your system has the .NET Framework 4.0 installed
  3. Required to install for IIS URL Rewrite
  4. Create a new directory to host your wiki, e.g. C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wiki
  5. You'll find a WebApplication directory in the ZIP file; copy all the contents into the new directory
  6. Copy SQLCE files into "bin" directory of your site, e.g. C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wiki\bin. They are not supplied as a unit. You can download it here. Example: SQLCE files
  7. Configure the new directory as Application or Website in IIS. Example: ApplicationPools, AdvancedSettings
  8. In the new directory, set the permissions of the public directory so that the ASP.NET Worker Process has "Modify" permissions on it
    • on IIS 7/7.5 in Integrated Pipeline Mode, set permissions for the user account defined by the Application Pool that runs the wiki
    • on IIS 7/7.5 in Classic Pipeline Mode or IIS 6, set permissions for "NETWORK SERVICE"
  9. Launch a browser and navigate to your wiki
  10. Set admin s password.

 * You can change the name of the directory Public on any other, but in this case, you have to include a new name into the parameter  appSettings\PublicDirectory of the file "web.config"
