Can I set up Dokuwiki within a WP droplet (as a sub domain?)

Posted March 1, 2021 349 views

Not technical enough anymore… Does anyone know if I can install Dokuwiki in a directory with a WP installation or would it screw stuff up?

Hi there,

Yes, this is doable. As Dokuwiki is also based on PHP as WordPress, what you could do is to create a separate Virtual Host for your subdomain name as per this tutorial here:

And then install Dokuwiki in a separate folder at /var/www/html/your_sub_domain_here.

That way you will have both applications running on the same server.

Hope that this helps!
