Foswiki: Introduction

Foswiki is an enterprise collaboration and information sharing tool targeted for professional use in many types of companies—from small businesses to large organizations.

Foswiki is a wiki: a website with easily editable web pages. It looks like a normal web site but it encourages contributions, edits, updates, questions, and answers from its users. It's a powerful way of enabling a community to communicate asynchronously using intranet or public internet websites. Foswiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content.

Foswiki supports storing structured data—name-value pairs—and provides advanced query tools that enable users without programming skills to build powerful yet simple applications to process information and support workflows. Developers can extend the functionality of Foswiki with plugins.

Foswiki is a fork from the TWiki project. Restrictions on the use of the TWiki brand resulted in many of its developers starting the Foswiki project. Foswiki is backwards compatible with all content from older TWiki installations.

Foswiki 1.1 ships with TWikiCompatibilityPlugin installed by default, thus if activated enables most extensions made for TWiki to work under Foswiki.

Foswiki is released under the GNU General Public License.

Upgrade Instructions

In-place upgrade from any release prior to Foswiki 1.1.0 is not recommended. Older Foswiki installations should install Foswiki as a new release, configure, and then migrate data to the new installation.
  • See System.UpgradeGuide for details on upgrading from older versions of Foswiki
  • See System.SystemRequirements for the latest System Requirements.
  • Be sure to take a backup!
  • The upgrade packages excludes files "commonly" modified, for example, WebHome, WebPreferences, AdminGroup, etc. If your installation has modified other topics, or template files, those updates will be lost!
  • If you use tar, then you can extract the upgrade package on top of your installation by using: (Be sure to run this as your web server user to avoid changing file ownership.)
