Site Backup

Running your own version of NatureWiki is not hard!

Download current NatureWiki

Did you make a page on the wiki and want to save the whole wiki right away? Make sure you are logged in (password: nature), and click the "Site Dump" link on the left side bar. It will be in tar.gz and you should be able to open it with a zip program like 7zip.

Download NatureWiki from Archive

Simply click the "Download Wiki" link on the left sidebar, click NatureWiki, and choose one of the backup zip files (probably the most recent date). Download it. See example pic to the right.

Next extract the htdocs folder. This is the website in full. The contents of htdocs would be placed into the htdocs folder (sometimes also called 'www') of an Apache web server (like XAMPP, WAMP, or Abyss).

Go through this guide to host it locally without a server: Standalone PmWiki

Server Hosting

If you want to host a server this guide works (note: you do not need to use a usb drive, the guide will give you the info you need to do a normal install too).
