Got TWiki working on IIS6.0 under Windows Server 2003

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Software

At the weekend I had a go at installing TWiki running on IIS6 under windows server 2003.  Eventually with my old Perl book in one hand and a mixture of these articles below I got it going…

http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/CookbookWindowsIISSetup
http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/TWikiOnWindows2003

I didnt use cygwin in the end I used the following…

ActiveState Perl 5.8

Windows Binaries of RCS (can be found on the GNU RCS site)

I wanted to authenticate users so I have used windows authentication which works fine but it does mean that users cant register themselves and then start using it without the user being added to windows box manually by the Administrator.  If any one has any ideas how to get around this I would be most obliged.

The tool itself is great and one of the best wiki tools around, as it is very mature now.

If you want to ask me any questions, please do..
