This years students passed and very few of this years do code... the threatened mediawiki never appeared.
I now either upgrade a clone of production version (1.1.6.2)and fix the years of mods that break...
or install fresh and migrate useful content or something inbetween. Looking at the new editor I think it's time we upgraded

''10 May 2006''
With 3 wikies running out of the same server now problems come to light all the time...(more to do with more eyes than multi wiki's however todays problems one was due to session leekage .. Users from one wiki were able to own pages on anothere without registering... that was solved by adding
## session_name($wakkaConfig["wakka_name"]);
#just above the session_start(); in wikka.php##
as detailed in Olivier Perron's note on [[http://wush.net/trac/wikka/ticket/81]]
Which brought to light another problem; my ##wakka_name## had an & in it which:-
a) Broke the rss feed revisions on the page.
b) Stopped the session_name fix working for trails/breadcrumb feature WikiBreadcrumb (second revision using sessions) which had been showing pages from the other wiki's on the server.
Also sorted out an odity in IE (which people are stuch with in this corporate environment) clicking on a jpeg file in a files dialog box (the standard and advanced versions of the files handler ##files.xmp.php## iIE will download it to save but not open if you pick that option... after reading over 40 different "solutions" the one that worked was to add:-
##
Header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
Header('Pragma: public');
##
to the headers section.

After a year of wikka wiki at work and it's been a raging sucess //(and should continue to be)// I think I'll try and use it to run my personal website which is designed to be a sort of note pad for me Wikka should be ideal for this, //as a note pad should just be there when you need it// Editing html can be tedious at the moment it means starting vi or textpad depending on the system I'm using getting a current version of the page via scp ofr ftp then editing, preview then upload, check... hardly spontaneous or handy. I'm not looking for a date driven blog more a non-linear set of thoughts. I'l probably do the conversion over christmas
- Mess with style sheet. Personal requirements and corporate ones are vastly different Luckily the TestSkin page here gives a valuable way to test this, I now have one I'm happy with ""IanHayhurst.css""
- Thinking of using something along the lines of InvisibleWiki but with modifacations to header as well
-Create a 'sticker' to proudly display the wikkawiki engine having gone to all the trouble to supress the wiki look my attempt lives WikkaSticker {{image url="http://ianhayhurst.co.uk/other/wikka-bb.png"}}
-RSS: the onyx-rss doesnt cope with proxies so I can pull in intranet feeds but nothing externaly, I did find a sockets based patch to fix this I think somewhere..but lost it again. I thought it was the proxy env var at first but it's probably the onyx-plugin.

'13 October 2005''
- Added ChristianBarthelemy ActiveDirectory to my development copy, It works a treat just try and log out... once your machine name is in, you're logged on permenantly, and that is the problem if anyone else uses my machine then they are me, even when logged onto AD with their own profile. Just got the Vintela SSO module into apache which works with firefox but seems to have a problem with IE (negotiated Kerberos token is too big for the defaukt 8K header bufer !, odd since I expect that it's the same token firefox sends) recompiling apache with bigger recivve limits (an upgrade fron 2.0.25 to 2.0.54 required) just segfaults the httpd daemon when IE sends a token might try an open source SSO module, when it works with both browsers we'll have a go an altering the action to record the REMOTE_USER in the extra field in the wikka_users table... probably need some thought of fall through as I dont want to lock non-kerberos (or AD authenticated linux users out (namely me!)

Revision [11393]

Edited on 2005-10-13 10:02:41 by IanHayhurst [auto user namespace creation at logon]
Additions:
''-- August 205''
- It became apparent on an intranet that users would login but not bother to create a namespace (everyone knows who I am and what I do so why should I ?). We noticed that other wiki implementations create it by default. An alteration to wikka.php was made that created it for the user at registration and cloned a template page to that namespace, additions to wikka.config.php were made to enable / disable the action and define the template page to use. The code is very small but as I didn't write it I will seek permision to post it, (if there's any interest)---

Additions:
"19 Apr 2005"
-Uptake is Sporadic, new groups discovering our wiki all the time, internal publicity would help but I'd rather get interested groups using it regularly rather than 'advertise' get 100 new users in one day that never come back, //softly, softly catchee wiki users//
-Small bugette, It's popular for users pages to put up a left or right float box, with an image in it and alongside (in the float still) put bullett pointed notes. The Wakka wiki CSS however renders the points inside / over the image, so rather than messing with the CSS and introducing a difficult migration path for upgrades I'm inlining a bit of HTML to fix it

-Lots of php to pull stuff from oracle (mostly a bug track system) but the guys bring back the data and then use some nasty VB script to hide or show rows based on dropdown selects, shame as it only works in IE, The development has gone a little cold whilst others argue over the most appropriate place to put this stuff.
-RSS: the onyx-rss doesnt cope with proxies so I can pull in intranet feeds but nothing externaly, I did find a sockets based patch to fix this I think somewhere..but lost it again. I thought it was the proxy env var at first but it's probably the onyx-plugin

We have a second wiki now (also Wikka)... to avoid having to share out the webroot to windows via samba to allow my old group (Bioinformatics) to maintain their website now their number is reduced and I'm supporting Chemoinformatics I have set them up a wiki, Oohh goodie we can use interwiki links internally now ! The intention was to provide
an 'easy to edit' website but the users are interested in adding stufff so it should get interesting. Firstly they missed the share price applet. // a preoccupation of folks in large corporate entities composed of other historical (and smaller entities) seems to be watching the stock of the previous parent companies of which their nest egg consists//
Ok so php looks sufficiently like perl that I feel I can have a go....
Looks like I need to create an action to display the applet as quoted html wasn't enough
Obviously this shareprice.php is only useful to someone with the aplplet... but now I can wrap applets up
as pseudo actions to insert them in the wiki, //easier method anyone?//

Additions:
The use of Wikka is an experiment In our organisation (and seemingly very succesful so far) that sprang from a meeting following a periodic re-organisation of the department that left us very much spread over UK, mainland Europe and the U.S. but with the requirement to work in a much more co-ordinated way. Intranets were used (in my opinion) in a awkward or unimaginative manner and percieved as a mechanism for location of information stored largely wordprocessor / spreadsheet documents. This was something along the lines of a slightly more colourful file share and quite static. Access to this required considerable inertia as the prefered method was via frontpage. Islands of information become stale and //if// you found what you were looking for it was rarely current.

A sort of blog of the journey.
//unsorted stream of consciousness follows for now:-//
How the interest grew, Reactions, what worked, what didnt
features that help , ideas for what is required...
how to explain categories to people (harder than you think)
Upgrade Migration experiences (started with 1.1.5.3 now on 1.1.6.0)
=== Hardware ===
For now I'm running our installation on an HP / Compaq Alpha
DS10 with Gentoo Linux, Gigabit ethernet...
(Nothing wrong with Tru64 infact it's a fine OS more later...
I converted the box to Gentoo linux as an experiment to run some alternative architectures for
a server farm (we do a fair ammount with server farms for compute intensive chemo/bioinformatics)
actually so far I'm very happy with my little Gentoo/GNU Linux on Alpha... for a bigger system I miss the flexability that the Tru64 ADVFS filesystem brings

I have an internal (intranet) install of Wakka Wiki. This is quite suprising / unusual / subversive in an organisation that is unfortunatle strongly orientated towards applications that have a particular vendor bias (I'll leave that to your imagination.... you don't have to think too hard to guess which it might be)
