for example wikiA and WikiB .

when users click on the website wikiA only sholud be visible

when somebody click on website WikiB shold only visible. Can anyone please guide how we i can acheive the above required

 

Thanks.

    You can set Wikis to be available for specific users or groups.

     

    When you have created your Wiki and you open it. You see the Whats hot etc panel on the right side of the page. Under Admin functions headline, select Settings. You'll go to the settings page of that wiki. On the left menu, select Permissions. Set your Wiki to be Private, and then just input the users you want to have access to this wiki.

     

    Then configure all of your wikis how you wish. When you do this, the Wiki will only be visible for those you set access to.

     

    Did this help?

    Thank you for the reply, I am aware of that,. But I want to create like two sites on one site should have wikiA and i can restrict acesss to it by firwall rules. The other site should have wikiB, I have tried this option , but index.html is the same so if i change using one site i can see from the other site. Do you know where exactly wiki stores the content in the back end ?

     

     

    Thanks.

    Colts,

     

    It appears you want a wiki per domain and want different access of each Wiki. If that is the case, why not just manage each Wiki separately? You will just have to log on to the first wiki to manage access for WIKI1 and second wiki to manage access for WIKI2. I'm I missing something?

    Hey Stephen than you for the reply. I want different name for each wiki. The second wiki should be different from the first one. By default when I enable web I get only one wiki on that system. How to create second wiki here ?

    I don't think you can, at least with the GUI. Why not just create a branch at the top of the Wiki. Each branch then can be named appropriately and managed separately. People without rights would not be able to even look at rights protected wiki. Take a look at Apple Documentation, Wiki_Deployment_v10.6.pdf, for more information.

    Yes I can do that, But I have requirement like this. And for the one wiki it needs to acccessed by only from some subnet and other wiki needs to be accessesd from other subnet. I dont think I can implement this unless I am creating my own site using apache.

    BTW, this statment is from Apple's  Wiki Server Admin documentation.

     

    Wiki content is stored in a data store. The default location is /Library/Collaboration/. You can change this location using Server Admin (in web service).

    Colt,

     

    I have been doing some searching for SWebDAV configuring and I think I found something that might be helpful for you. It talks about configuring WebDAV using Apache. Being lower level than the GUI, it might give you some clues on setting up what you want to do.

    Hope that helps,
