  i am curious about one thing in that alleged recipe for installing

===== start

Fix an installer issue that would prevent you from starting DokuWiki:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/conf.d/dokuwiki.conf
locate the line

Alias /dokuwiki /usr/share/dokuwiki/
Now remove the extra slash after /usr/share/dokuwiki, it should look
like this:

Alias /dokuwiki /usr/share/dokuwiki

===== end

  would that really prevent dokuwiki from starting?  (that's
obviously an apache config question.)  it seemed to start just fine
before i'd ever been warned about that issue.
