This question about Installation of Foswiki: Answered

Upload existing TWiki backups to VM-FOSWIKI

Hi, Congratulations, I really like the Virtual Machine version of Foswiki. I have it running in a VMware server setup on a Windows XP host, very smooth installation.

Could you give me a short run-through how I can upload content from a backup of my existing TWiki to the VM-Foswiki? Is there an FTPserver I can connect to? Or can I access the filesystem via a SMB share? And what's the path of the content?

Thanks for your help! And thanks for all you've achieved so far!

Cheers, Stulle


Hello Stulle

first login as root with password foswiki on the debian linux. check the ip-adresse with ifconfig in the vm, for my vm it will be 192.168.128.150. after that you can transfer files mit winscp which you can download http://winscp.net/. copy the complete directories /twiki/data/<you old twiki web> and the /twiki/pub/<you old twiki web> to the new /foswiki/data and foswiki/pub directory
