Assuming you have a basic LAMP setup like the one used by the DigitalOcean One-Click application or as described in this tutorial, creating multiple wikis under the same domain is as simple as creating sub-folders in the
First we’ll download Dokuwiki itself and extract it in our home directory:
- cd ~
- wget http://download.dokuwiki.org/src/dokuwiki/dokuwiki-stable.tgz
- tar xzvf dokuwiki-stable.tgz
- rm dokuwiki-stable.tgz
Now we’ll make two copies in the
- cp -R dokuwiki* /var/www/html/wiki-a
- cp -R dokuwiki* /var/www/html/wiki-b
We’ll also need to make one addition to our Apache VitualHost. This is to make sure that certain directories are not publicly accessible on the internet. Edit the file

We will demonstrate how to install these pieces and configure a basic setup for Ubuntu 14.04 in this guide.
