Set up the instance

Customizing the wiki

  • Back up LocalSettings.php
  • chmod 600 LocalSettings.php
  • Edited LocalSettings.php to change skin and icon and wiki name
  • Change the password of the default Admin user, called User
  • Add extensions, etc (especially Cite)
  • Change skin, add logo, etc, etc

Getting math working

  • As user bitnami, logged in to your AMI: sudo aptitude install ocaml
  • Do make in math directory, as usual
  • Edited LocalSettings.php to change skin and icon and wiki name
  • Right now, I am not using local LaTeX but doing this instead

Making nice URLs – I

  • I wanted to use a custom domain name, so deleted existing DNS records with my host and made two new ones:
    • CNAME for @ pointing to the public address of the EC2 instance
    • CNAME for * pointing to ditto
