yeah i think very few links are "hard links" involving the name of the
host and they are all that need to be changed.  I think: Just set up a
working oddmuse wiki, play with it, and then all that is needed is to
replace the "data content" of the wiki with the .tar.gz that's on the
web at

PS: the old wiki's icon is at <-- lifted from
 and the 

stylesheet (by Damian Elmes) is here:


download, rename it to, and then 

The only change needed is to change the datadir in the,
here's what i did: 

#$DataDir   = '/tmp/oddmuse' unless $DataDir; # Main wiki directory
$DataDir     = '/home/deegowiki/wikis/octave'; # Main wiki directory

The next step is to edit the config file in this directory...  The
tarred up octave.tar.gz already contains a config file, whose contents
are included below as well:   (tweak directory names as needed :-) 

And finally, for legal reasons, there should be a copy of FDL residing
on the host containing the wiki, which the footernote below links to

please let me know if i can be of any more assistance :)
