Outdated information

1and1 (1 & 1)

  • http://www.oneandone.co.uk
  • Using their Business package, I have successfully installed and used 1.8.5 (Polaris). It didn't work properly until a few months ago (as of June 2005).
  • I haven't yet tried upgrading to 1.9 but will update here when (if I do that)
    added 6th June 2005 by r5gordini
  • I have serious doubt - after contacting them 8/25/05 - the memory limit in 8mb their phpini sylvie
  • Looks like they were listenning... The limit is now 40M for both the US and UK. RabidDog
  • I ordered the business package on 2-sep-2007. Their marketing info indicated that they had a "quick setup" feature for Tikiwiki. However, once I got my account there was no entry for Tikiwiki. I contacted tech support and they indicated the Tiki quick install was coming "soon". I was able to install via FTP (latest version, 1.9.7 iirc). Wiki is stable and 1and1 gives 100 MB per MySQL database. mzaleski

1and1 (1 & 1) US

  • http://www.1and.com
  • We have the Business Plan and as of 10/11/10 it is working fine. I was able to upload tiki files via SSH; create a database via the control panel and launch the installer.

    • Host has php4 & 5 installed. I had to add a .htaccess file to ensure v5 was used. Look here for details
      • WARNING: I used 1&1 several years back and the only way I could stop the autobill once I left was to shut down my bank account. Web based support wa no help. There were no working phone numbers to contact tech support. I wasn't using tiki back then, so can't comment on that. - WizarDave

1und1 (1 & 1) DE managed dedicated Server

  • https://hosting.1und1.de/webhosting
  • I have several Tikis from 3.2 to 6.0 tested on a 1und.de managed Webserver.
  • everything works fine and installation is made in some minutes, once you know some little trick, how to install
  • setup database (make shure that it is utf-8), upload and unzip Tiki, rename the folder, setup domain/subdomain
    -> now just add local.php manually in /db (mind: $host_tiki='localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock';), add $api_tiki='adodb'; in the local.php and parse PHP5 with AddType x-mapp-php5 .php and ''AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php in the .htaccess
    -> then install with tiki-install.php
    I have never problems since we found that solution

    November 2010
    Update: May 2016:
    1und1 is kind of reluctant to upgrade the PHP in their shell (commandline), which stays at PHP4.something as a default
    Although it is possible to use PHP5.x commands in the shell, it is not possible right now to use composer
    Trying to run a Tikiwebsite from the svn repository is a no-runner - (hints or workarounds appreciated)
    Using downloaded versions including all latest builds is fine. These Tiki versions install and run smothly up to trunk (pre-16)

Popular BBS, webcams, forums and message board programs are generally not allowed, due to the massive amount of server resources they require. FormMail.pl, FormMail.cgi (we have a formmail script available) phpBB, phpNUKE, Yabb and UBB are strictly prohibited on all user accounts. (postNUKE is allowed) might also be a problem for Tiki

  • GoDaddy does support mysql and php in their basic plan, but does not support the larger php memory requirement. They will want you to be on their deluxe plan or better.
    petehoffswell Jan 2005
  • I successfully installed TW 3.0 on godaddy in May 2009 on their least expensive linux hosting service ($4.99/mo); install said the memory limit was 64MB. They also allow custom php.ini which purportedly would customize memory limit if needed.
    commania May 2009
  • Finally got into the nuts and bolts of my TW 3.4 app, and uh oh, I couldn't get registration email to work on GoDaddy. Found another post there (August 2009) with same issue, no responses. No help from GoDaddy, so I'd say this is still "Unconfirmed" at best. And I'm about to punt and go elsewhere.
    commania March 3, 2010
  • I was able to figure out part of the email trouble with Godaddy sending out registration emails with version 4.2. (And many other emails as well) This should apply to several other hosting providers as well. They are blocking any {$mail_PARAMETERS} being used in the subject line of the email due to SPAM issues. Edit each of the templates in /tikiwiki-4.2/templates and saving them to /tikiwiki-4.2/templates/styles/YOURSTYLE/mail removing any {$mail_PARAMETERS} from within the templates with the word 'subject' in their file name before installing. After it is installed select the appropriate theme in Admin. Placing them in a custom style directory will make for smoother upgrades. (If your site is already installed you may want to backup your tikiwiki-4.2/templates_c directory and then remove all the files except the index.php. (Be sure to backup, in the process of troubleshooting this issue I had to restore the "en^%%XXXX%%tiki-adminusers.tpl.php" to have access to the "Users" menu at one point.) The site should regenerate the cached copies of the templates on its own? Once I did this I was able to successfully receive the registration emails. This was probably an unnecessary step, but I didn't want to wait to see if it would regenerate the correct cached copy. PLEASE NOTE: We aren't out of the woods here yet. I'm not able to send account verification emails from within the Users configuration. (I'm not getting any php errors either, yet I did with the new registration issues.) I'll post a fix if I find one.
    Michael Oxendine northshorepc.net May 23, 2010
  • I was able to install v. 5.0 successfully. I have some problems as I mentioned here, but I am not sure if it is related to godaddy yet. We are using it as an internal wiki so I haven't really testing the emailing functionality yet.

Tiki Unfriendly hosts

Hosting offers that Tiki will not run on
Some hostings usually free or cheap have a too small configuration for tiki. Usually, you notice that by having a white page or a page partially displayed (don't mislead with the left col bug)) and sometimes with no message.

1and1 free hosting

  • I ran a Tiki 5.x install here for a couple years (2010-2012) without issue.

bodhost cloud computing


  • I've been having major problems with oneandone.co.uk. under the professional hosting package, memory limit is 40MB but, as above, php is installed as CGI so very poor to broken performance - white pages or "out of dynamic memory" errors as noted above. Annoying since I've only just moved to this better hosts from web-mania who are much cheaper and very tikiwiki friendly, although the tech support is rubbish. See below. Russ Wilde

  1. everything works fine and installation is made in some minutes, once you know some little trick, how to install
    -> just add local.php manually in /db (mind: $host_tiki='localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock';), add $api_tiki='adodb'; in the local.php and parse PHP5 with AddType x-mapp-php5 .php and ''AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php in the .htaccess
    -> then install with tiki-install.php
    I have never problems since we found that solution
    Once confirmed with a shared hosting account, I will move to friendly hosts

  • used "homepage unlimited", their medium price hosting. It included 1500 MB webspace, 15 MySQL database, unlimited traffic, but having installed Tikiwkik 1.9.9 and using only one of the available 15 databases with a 30 people community i got database connection timeouts and php script timeouts on a regular basis. complained several times, nothing changed. So on 1Blu you could run a tikiwiki, but i add it here because the performance is so annyoingly low i lost most of my community because they got annoyed by the site, lost posts, etc. and the contract time for 1Blu is 2 years that you are stuck with them.

  • Greengeeks.com will kill your site if it uses more than 6sec of CPU time in any 60second interval. Seems that tiki-index.php can do this and then the site is taken offline with no warning and it can take 24hrs or more to get it back. I don't recommend this hosting service to anyone!


  • Lycos, or more exactly, the free version (the German version, but this is applicable to co.uk etc. as well) is unfortunately not tikifriendly. It lacks PEAR support, and the manual install in the /lib folder won´t work as various functions, i.e. url_fopen, are deactivated. The PEAR web installer doesn´t work, furthermore register_globals is on as well as safe_mode, which makes it even more difficult. On install adodb didn´t work either.

  • Memory limit is reported as only being 8Mb, this has caused problems for a Tiki site and the installation had to be moved to another host. Please confirm before ordering that PHP memory limit is either 16Mb or 32Mb - Added 12 June 2004
    I have removed web-mania from this page after I investigated this, see this conversation. RW


  • As of March 2005, Powweb have upgraded to MySQL 4.1 leaving our tiki sites broke 🙁 which is a shame as otherwise their offering is good.

  • Constantly his servers falls down and no warning about this and, not a good service. Bad argumentations about his falls, and a poor MySQL server performance. Tiki runs very bad here. I lost a year of payed host with this guys. My Money Back Guarantee end at 30 days of contract and the disaster comes after this time and the admin complain about "bad software code" (aka TIKIWIKI) to excuse about his low performance, when this warning could be set in the 1st month of contract. A total bad experience.

  • I now agree with Io. The price is low $4/mo but the downtime is huge! Basic Apache/email uptime is acceptable but mySQL/PHP performance is horrible!!! Five request for service messages not returned for over a week now. I can't even get a 50 unit newsletter emailing out! NO ACCESS TO php.ini!

  • Be careful that even if they offer svn they do not allow you to svn with sourceforge
  • the max_allowed_packet is fixed to 64M and you can not change it

Network Solutions

I've had a domain registered with Network Solutions for years and decided to stay with them when putting up a Tiki Wiki site. While I was able to get Tiki Wiki running the performance was so bad that I canceled the order within a week.

  • http://www.networksolutions.com/
  • They have several different options with both Windows and Unix hosting
  • I went with a Large site configuration on Unix and a 3 year contract.
  • The only positive experience was the ability to add php.ini to cgi_bin, which allowed a site specific configuration.
  • There were very little tools and scripts available. File Manager, phpmysqladmin, and FTP are pretty much it.
  • They have scripts to install Tiki Wiki but it's the 3.2 LTS version. This was one of the reasons I decided to go with them, but I installed 6.2 instead of using their script.
  • Performance was HORRIBLE! average access time was 8-10 seconds with 15+ seconds fairly common. Just going back to the home page would usually take 10 seconds.
  • They have a 30 day money back guarantee - but it's not a full refund. I cancelled within 5 days and only got back %80 of what I paid for the 3 year contract.

The fact that they listed Tiki Wiki and had the guarantee were primary reasons I went with them without checking other hosting options. However, the performance was SO BAD that it was unbearable. I tried a lot of different things from gzip compression to caching to try and improve performance, but nothing helped.

After cancelling I switched to Beachcomber.net (top of this list) and am extremely happy with them. They have a lot of hosting options, 10x more tools, and 50x more scripts than Network Solutions, and performance is GREAT! Average access time is around 1 second and I'm very happy I made the switch.

Not interested in hosting a Tiki. Have a lot of the tools available but I guess I need to find another host.

FYI on the documentation side in French, there is a list of many more host providers.

Please add your host and your experience!

don't forget date, source and offer (a hosting can improve his offer)
