Installing Tiki via Installatron

Installing is a breeze and everything works well via FTP or SFTP (creating special FTP user and password for use with Installatron recommended whenever possible). Here installing of Tiki 12.1:

Importing existing Tiki installation

Again, the FTP user must have write access to the destination directory.


When backing up, make sure the FTP user can write to the destination and you have enough free space, or you will get an error message that there is no space for the backup.


Manual updates are very easy. Here is a screenshot of updating (imported) Tiki 9.6 to 9.8:

1 Ticket submitted on 2017-01-28 with the following response: "I've added these TikiWiki updates to our internal todo list, though I can't give an ETA at the moment unfortunately because we are totally swamped with catch-up work to do. But hopefully the person who handles the installers will spot them there and add them in.". Reminder sent on 2017-03-17 with no reply as of 2017-03-24 :-(luciash d' being 🧙 ">
