DokuWiki is an open-source wiki software that doesn't require a database. It is popular due to the fact that it is easy to maintain, backup and integrate. This guide will show you how to deploy a SkySilk VPS for DokuWiki hosting.


How to set up a DokuWiki server with SkySilk VPS in 10 Steps


If you want to restart the install process on your VM you can use the following command; 'turnkey-init'.


1. Deploy a SkySilk DokuWiki VPS Template.


2. Login to your VPS. SSH into your VPS using root@ipaddress and the password you set in the SkySilk dashboard. If you are connecting from a Unix-like machine (Mac OS or Linux), or by using PuTTY with Windows then the command to connect is simply:

ssh [user]@[ip address]


where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.

# for example:

ssh root@204.44.81.xx
