I am a newbie so talk to me like a third-grader. I manage a simple website for a department university. They wanted a wiki but the department server could not support it. I told them I have a commercial hosting account and would be happy to donate the space for their wiki, which I installed under the domain name I donated to them. Problem is I don't know anything about configuring or administering a wiki. I have a few questions: (1) I have several other domains under my account. Will the wiki admin (to be named) be able to access my other domains? (2) What do I need to do to set up the wiki? That's a start. I'm sure I'll have more later.

Hello maizie,

I am happy to answer your questions today.

(1) I have several other domains under my account. Will the wiki admin (to be named) be able to access my other domains?
No, the wiki admin will only be able to access that particular program, so there is no worry about the admin being able to access other areas.

(2) What do I need to do to set up the wiki? That's a start. I'm sure I'll have more later.
The best way to install and configure your new wiki is to use our Softaculous program You can choose from different programs in the Wikis category.

Best Regards,
Scott M
