I downloaded the Native installation for DokuWiki, however when I try to log in I can’t. I tried login: user and password: bitnami however it didn’t work.

I wasn’t presented, at install, to create a login and password so I’m not sure what it is.

Any help?

Hi,

For native installers you should set the user/password during the installation. It does not exist any default user.

Cheers.

How would I do that then? It doesn’t give me an option when I run it. It asks for the install path of my LAMP server and my password to my mySQL database and that’s it. After those it starts the install process. Once it finishes and I hit finish it just opens the the website, no configuration or anything.

I can register on the site, but how do I get my administrator log in information? Or how can I set it on install?

Hi,

The dokuwiki module should ask you fro the administrator user. By default is “user” and the password is the same that your MySQL database. Once you login in the application you can change in it through the application, in the “Update profile” section.

Beltran, thanks for all of your help! I finally got it figured out.

Strangest thing too. I’m running my server via a VM, I had cloned the VM which had the base installation of the LAMP Stack on it. When attempting to install DokuWiki, it neither prompted me to create an admin account nor did it use the default that you mentioned. I got frustrated so I uninstalled the LAMP stack and reinstalled it (I did nothing different) and then started the installer for DokuWiki. Like magic DokuWiki asked me to create an admin account, not sure why it suddenly started to after a reinstall of the LAMP stack, but I thought I’d bring it to your attention in case it was a little glitch somewhere.

Thanks again for all of your help!

Hi Streak.

The user/password is configured the first time, in the first module you have installed. Other modules will use the same user/password. Thanks for your feedback.
