Installing Foswiki: Configure the locations of the Perl executable and the Foswiki modules

Open a command prompt: Run cmd.exe to open a command prompt window.

(optional) Edit LocalLib.cfg
  • Change to the directory C:\www\foswiki\bin and copy/rename LocalLib.cfg.txt to LocalLib.cfg.
  • Edit LocalLib.cfg and replace the line $foswikiLibPath = "/absolute/path/to/your/lib"; by $foswikiLibPath = "C:/www/foswiki/lib";.

Update location of perl:
  • Change to the directory C:\www\foswiki\lib.
  • Run perl ..\tools\rewriteshebang.pl.
    • Specify the location of your Perl executable at the prompt and confirm. (The script should guess correctly)
