SliTaz GNU/Linux official and community documentation wiki.
Translations of this page:



TazWikiss is a port of the wiki software WiKiss. As it is a CGI application, it needs a web server supporting CGI and a browser - on SliTaz these are by default httpd (in busybox) and tazweb. The CGI scripts are shell scripts, so no other language interpreter is needed.

The software is installed in /var/www/wiki and the wiki pages are (by definition in the config file: /var/www/wiki/ stored in /var/www/wiki/pages.

The wiki pages are plain text files without any subdirectory hierarchy.


A running web server supporting CGI and a web browser.

Start TazWiKiss

via a desktop menu

→ Accessories → Wiki documents

via a command

$ tazweb

When logged in on the same system where the web server is running, else localhost is to be replaced by a name or IP address of the system where the wiki resides.


When TazWiKiss is not incorporated in the flavor you installed, you can add it by installing the package slitaz-dev-tools:

# tazpkg -gi slitaz-dev-tools
