tar xvfz dokuwiki* 
mv dokuwiki* wiki
cd wiki

cd conf
cp acl.auth.php.dist acl.auth.php
cp users.auth.php.dist users.auth.php
cp dokuwiki.php local.conf
chgrp www-data acl.auth.php users.auth.php
chmod g+w acl.auth.php users.auth.php


$conf['title']       = ' notes'; 
$conf['mailguard']   = 'visible'; 
$conf['useacl']      = 1; 
$conf['openregister']= 1;
$conf['autopasswd']  = 0; 
$conf['passcrypt']   = 'md5';
$conf['superuser']   = 'bw';
