  BTW, while i'm still going to take a shot at the above (turnkey
linux), i'm still interested in whether anyone has a reliable recipe
for installing current stable release of dokuwiki on ubuntu.  if i can
nail down the recipe, i'd be happy to write it up and post it.


p.s.  i would especially like to install it in a "portable" way; that
is, requiring as little hacking of system files as possible.  all of
the configuration and data files under a directory in my home
directory so i could easily move it elsewhere.  i realize i can do
that with a VM so i'll be looking at that later today.  thanks again.
