Adding an icon to your wiki setup

You maybe want to add some icon to your wiki site, commonly known as favicon.ico. To get those little icons besides bookmarks and with tabbed browsing, add this to your moin_config.py:

html_head = '''
<link rel="icon" href="/images/icon.png" type="image/png">
<!-- ... more header stuff ... -->

The image size must be 16x16 and simply putting it as /favicon.ico (into your DocumentRoot) does not work with all browsers (e.g. does not work with Mozilla versions 1.0 - 1.3).

Enabling a publically editable intermap

If you want your users to easily add new InterWiki monikers, change your moin_config.py to contain an entry like this:

shared_intermap = ['/usr/local/moin/mywiki/data/text/intermap_2etxt']

Then create a page named intermap.txt (see [LinuxWiki]intermap.txt for an example) with the following content:

#format text/plain
## Keep the first line and add text only after two hash marks (##)
## This is a publically editable extension of standard InterWiki
## definitions. Any addition here is immediately reflected in 
## the wiki.
## To enable this in your own wiki, either add the page file of
## this page to config.shared_intermap (can be a list of files
## since version 1.1), or add an appropriate symbolic link.
## The format of an entry is interwiki moniker followed by the URL
## $PAGE can be used to embed the URI following the moniker in
## the resultant URL

MyNewMoniker http://example.com/somewiki/$PAGE.html

Then check whether your new monikers appear on the InterWiki list.

Apache tricks

Securing access to a wiki via Apache means

See [MoinMoin]PasswordProtectedEditing

Serving the wiki from a domain root
httpd.conf modification for MoinMoin installation at "/":
# global section:
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/mod_rewrite.so
# virtualhost section:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/wiki/       -                      [last]
RewriteRule ^/robots.txt  -                      [last]
RewriteRule ^/favicon.ico -                      [last]
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) /pathto/cgi-bin/moin.cgi/$1  [last,type=application/x-httpd-cgi]
This way you can use short and clean URLs like http://LinuxWiki.de/FrontPage.

Special features for wiki farms and intranets

The following shows how certain features can help you to optimize your configuration when you run several wikis on one host, or when you use MoinMoin in intranet environments.

Centralized settings
Remapping URLs
The configuration variable "url_mappings" can be used to remap absolute URLs to relative ones, or change certain URL prefixes to totally different ones. This is especially useful in intranets, when whole trees of documents hosted outside of the wiki move around.

"url_mappings" is a lookup table in the form of a dict, the key is the prefix to be replaced, the value is the replacement. A typical example is url_mappings = {'http://my.server.net/': '/'}, which removes the scheme from local URLs, and thus makes links to your own server work for both http and https.
