Projects / PhpWiki


PhpWiki is a WikiWikiWeb clone written in PHP. A Wiki is a Web site where anyone can edit or create the pages through the Web browser, with no authentication. PhpWiki works right out of the box with zero configuration, and comes with a set of default pages. It's useful for collaborating on documentation on a project, having freeform discussions, and easy editing and searching.

            I think you have a little problem with spam on your demo site ;-)

            You are correct... the tarball on Sourceforge is broken! You can get the version off FTP right now, which I just tested with gzip -t and tar -tzvf to be sure it's OK:


            I'll upload a new tarball right now.

            Yes, tar zxvf

            Here is the error message I'm getting:


            tar: Skipping to next header

            gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error

            tar: 471 garbage bytes ignored at end of archive

            As far I know, the tarball is broken. Witness:

            ~/public_html> gunzip -c ../../dl/phpwiki-1.2.0.tar.gz | gtar xvf -


            gtar: Skipping to next file header

            gunzip: ../../dl/phpwiki-1.2.0.tar.gz: invalid compressed
            data--crc error

            gtar: Archive - EOF not on block boundary

            ~/public_html> gunzip -c ../../dl/phpwiki-1.2.0.tar.gz | tar xvf -

            x phpwiki/DBLIB.txt, 6323 bytes, 13 tape blocks

            tar: directory checksum error

            ~/public_html> gtar xzvf ../../dl/phpwiki-1.2.0.tar.gz


            gtar: Skipping to next file header

            gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error

            gtar: Archive ../../dl/phpwiki-1.2.0.tar.gz EOF not on block boundary

            Have you tried gunzip, or tar -xzvf? Or are you on a Windows box?
