Developer Install Notes

See LynxWikiInstallationNotes
Also see LynxWikiSyndicationInstallationNotes
  • VS 2012 should be opened with 'Run as Administrator' before opening the solution. This step is necessary as IIS is required.
  • The tfs local path should be C:\LynxWiki-root
  • Security on the directory C:\LynxWiki-root\LynxWiki\WikiRoot should be set to Modify for 'Network Service'
  • Set the Application Pool (v4.0 Integrated) of IIS that will be used for this application so that 32-bit processes are allowed. The application will run in 64-bit but edit and dsiplay of pages will be significantly slower due to performance issues with Regex in 64-bit
  • if deploying on a server to run outside of VS 2012 then there should be a directory C:\LynxWiki-root\LynxWiki\App_Data with the App_Data files in it and security set to allow 'Network Service' to read those files
  • if deploying to a server then the directory WikiRoot in the Virtual directory should have 'IIS_IUSRS' set to Modify
  • there must be a directory 'WikiRoot\WikiDir' that is used as the base for the wiki topics and sub-directories
  • the role 'WikiAdmin' must be in the ASP.Net Membership. Any user that you want to access the Index admin functions must be assigned the 'WikiAdmin' role.

  • the Attachments directory should have read and write permissions for Network Service user
  • version added an AppSetting in web.config called CaptchaRequiredOnEdit
