Install DokuWiki without Mail Support (215-2-19026219)
DokuWiki is great. But it requires
mail() PHP function for registration or subscriptions. However, depending on your needs you don’t have to use mail feature of DokuWiki. For single user or registration closed typed wikis mailing is not essential. You may want to install DokuWiki on a server where
mail() function is not available. Some hosting providers may disable
mail() function. When you try to install DokuWiki, it gives you an error like that:
PHP function mail is not available.
install.php doesn’t allow you to install DokuWiki. To fix this problem, ( for 2014-09-29b "Hrun"):
check_functionaround line 554.
explode(' ', 'addslashes call_user_func … ini_get mail mkdir …');
mkdir, not leave as
- Now, install your DokuWiki
Don't forget that DokuWiki still is not able to send mails. This steps just allow us to skip checking mailing feature on installation.
