NGINX Unit
v. 1.24.0

DokuWiki§

To run the DokuWiki content management system using Unit:

  1. Install Unit with a PHP language module.

  2. Install and configure DokuWiki’s prerequisites.

  3. Install DokuWiki’s core files. Here, we install it at /path/to/app/; use a real path in your configuration.

    $ mkdir -p /path/to/app/ && cd /path/to/app/
    $ wget https://download.dokuwiki.org/src/dokuwiki/dokuwiki-stable.tgz
    $ tar xvzf dokuwiki-stable.tgz --strip-components=1
    $ rm dokuwiki-stable.tgz
    
  4. Run the following command for each directory containing app code or data so Unit can access it:

    # chown -R unit:unit /path/to/app/
    

    Note

    The unit:unit user-group pair is available only with official packages, Docker images, and some third-party repos. Otherwise, account names may differ; run the ps aux | grep unitd command to be sure.

    For further details, including permissions, see the security checklist.

  5. Next, prepare the app configuration for Unit (use real values for share and root):

    {
        "listeners": {
            "*:80": {
                "pass": "routes"
            }
    
        },
    
        "routes": [
            {
                "match": {
                    "uri": [
                        "/data/*",
                        "/conf/*",
                        "/bin/*",
                        "/inc/*",
                        "/vendor/*"
                    ]
                },
    
                "action": {
                    "return": 404
                }
            },
            {
                "match": {
                    "uri": [
                        "/",
                        "*.php"
                    ]
                },
    
                "action": {
                    "pass": "applications/dokuwiki"
                }
            },
            {
                "action": {
                    "share": "/path/to/app/",
                }
            }
        ],
    
        "applications": {
            "dokuwiki": {
                "type": "php",
                "root": "/path/to/app/",
                "index": "doku.php"
            }
        }
    }
    
  6. Upload the updated configuration. Assuming the JSON above was added to config.json:

    # curl -X PUT --data-binary @config.json --unix-socket \
           /path/to/control.unit.sock http://localhost/config/
    

    Note

    The control socket path may vary; run unitd -h or see Startup and Shutdown for details.

    After a successful update, your app should be available on the listener’s IP address and port.

  7. Browse to /install.php to complete your installation:
