Dear,

is there a possibility to run the latest release without database? like 0.9.2?

I’m running version 0.9.2 on a small thin client and don’t want to bloat the system.

Thx antonio

No.

You need some database. But the default sqlite3 is as lightweight as humanly possible.

what a pity; well, version 0.9.2 works ok for my usage.

I’m using a small and older linux installation (puppylinux 4.1.2) on a thin client with CF-Card. I tried some perl-wikis without database and QuickiWiki (the original from Ward Cunningham) but it’s a bit outdated :) . Newer perl-wikis have problems with hiawatha (webserver security) and/or maybe perl 5.8.8. So I give ruby-wikis a try and instiki works nice

I’m not sure why you think the Madeleine Persistence Layer (which, I believe, is what 0.9.2 uses) is lighter-weight than Sqlite3.

You do need to store the data somewhere. And, with Sqlite3,

  • there’s no separate database process
  • the data is stored in a single file, db/production.db.sqlite3.

Maybe You’re right, I’m not a programmer or linux specialist. But I’ve minimum to install the sqlite libraries and perhaps other dependent packages, too. And because of older packages, maybe the need of compiling…

Keep it simple :)
