    Is it possible to make it public? No need to login to view the page?

    I’m looking for a way to do this, but I can’t find it.

    Can you help me anyone? How could i use the local storage for backup?
    I ran the docker-compose.yml from docs. I added a backups volume: /srv/WikiJS/backup:/backups

    I specified the path in wikijs (status was green) but nothing is happen if i click on create backup. Both folder are empty.

    Does anyone know how to set it up to work?

    i dont get why so many tech guys like you are still using google chrome.. there are so much alternatives based on chromium

    First. Awesome vid!

  6. Иван Калякин on January 12, 2022 at 4:31 pm

    Are you running all this services on your local machine, or you start them up from VM located in cloud?

    Dep[loyment error yaml.scanner.scanner error" mapping values are not allowed here in "/data/compose/10/docker-compose.yml", line 2 column 8

    I am a bit confused. It says on the home page you have to connect to a database. It’s the reason I used DokuWiki at home. But you deployed without a database. Can I used Wiki JS without a database then?

  9. l1g17 on January 12, 2022 at 4:34 pm

    Hey I’m working on a home server set up and have been having troubles installing a mail server, I have tried mail cow but I would like to manage it with portainer and the docker-compose.yml is intensely long and confusing. Anyway, when or if you have time look into it.

  10. Jon Molina on January 12, 2022 at 4:38 pm

    chmoding the data/config directories would have also worked instead of giving the deployment root, "mkdir -p /srv/WikiJS/data && mkdir -p /srv/WikiJS/config && chmod 777 /srv/WikiJS/config && chmod 777 /srv/WikiJS/data" and then deploy the stack or run the chmod portion after deploying the stack.

    Hi, thank you for this nice video. I followed and everythings work fine, but I can`t get this search engine to work. Is there a workaround to set it up? Greets

    It is such a breath of fresh air to watch a tech tutorial and not have to speed it up to 1.5x
    Kudos to you

  16. Siodhachan on January 12, 2022 at 4:45 pm

    How do I access the config file? I want to change the file size for attachment. And "go to /srv/WikiJS/" is not enough I need to know from where I can access that file. Using Windows Docker Desktop and this Portainer method.

    Hello, can you make a video about Ouroboros a auto-update docker container?

  18. 0ctatr0n on January 12, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    I know this might be a hard one and that OMV has this built in, but getting fail2ban to secure all docker instances by setting an environment variable on each container would be awesome. No more dodgy people attempting to login to ma stuff 😉

    It’d be nice to think that one day servers are as easy to install as apps and running your own services from your own hardware at home or on a vps becomes the default choice over "free" services from Google, Yahoo and Facebook.

    Also have you ever played with Nethserver as an alternative to OMV?

  19. jfmalygos on January 12, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    Nice Video!! THANX.. But I have a question. How can I change the upload size?

  20. kirby de paz on January 12, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    Hello there. I don’t know where to contact you . Anyways. Can I request you something? I’ve been looking for a tutorial about "expose"… But none. Can you make a video on how to install beyondcode/expose… It’s an alternative to ngrok. And since I can’t port forward in my network, this is really a big help.

  21. drwhowhogrub on January 12, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    Hi, thanks for the videos! Could you explain what the difference is between docker stack, docker compose and docker files. What is the benefits of either one. Cheers

  22. Aing Maung on January 12, 2022 at 5:05 pm

  25. Cristian Iordache on January 12, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    Can you do a tutorial on Joplin note-taking app? 😀

  26. lichti i on January 12, 2022 at 5:12 pm

    Could you say, how to increase the Size of the Max. Upload? I tried to overwrite the config.yml but it don’t work for me.

  27. Craig Burridge on January 12, 2022 at 5:19 pm

    Is this better than book stack?
