Instiki 0.13 Installation on Dreamhost with Passenger

Running Instiki on Dreamhost has gotten much easier since they have added Passenger (mod_rails).

Create a new fully hosted domain on dreamhost. Something like wiki.domain.com.

Check the “Ruby on Rails Passenger (mod_rails)” box.
In the Specify your web directory enter “wiki.yourdomain.com/instiki/public”

This will create the wiki.domain.com folder in the user’s home directory. Login to your shell account and do the following:

cd wiki. yourdomain.com
svn checkout svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/instiki/instiki/trunk/ instiki
cd instiki
rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
Open wiki. yourdomain.com in your browser and set up the wiki.
