  • Received an account on linux 2 to install my own installation of devmo wiki for testing.
    • Problem: After checking out the wiki source from devmo, I used sancus's devmo configuration file to get this running, but it kept redirecting to his installation for some reason. Browsing the setting files, etc. didn't reveal any solution.
    • Solution: sancus and shaver suggested using a hostname instead of a user directory link (ie. /~melz). Strangely, that fixed it. A mystery.

  • Checked out devmo's css files (it was in a different path) and moved it so that everything loads up properly.
  • Everything looks great so I'm getting my own dump of devmo's wiki contents instead of pointing to sancus's installation
    • Problem: Had issues getting 'mysqlimport' to populate my database.
    • Solution: Ended up using just 'mysql' and the errors stopped. 'mysqlimport' seems more picky for some reason.
  • All set up and ready to go.
