%TOC% %STARTINCLUDE% ---# Managing Webs _Adding, renaming and deleting webs is done directly on the server_ ---++ Overview Managing TWiki webs requires direct access to the installation files on the host server. There are no browser-based web tools. ---++ How to Add a New Web * See [[TWikiDocumentation#TWikiInstallationGuide][TWikiInstallationGuide]] ---++ How to Rename or Delete a Web *NOTE:* Think twice if you intend to rename the %WIKITOOLNAME%.%MAINWEB% web, since many files point to it. If you rename it, you also have to change all occurrences of =Main= to the new web name (like the web prefixes for all user signatures, =Main.<nop>SomeName=). (On the other hand, if the =%<nop>MAINWEB%= variable is used throughout, you won't have that problem.) 1. Prepare your site: Other webs may link to the web you want to rename or delete. Search each web for links to the target web: search all webs for =Abouttochange.= - include the period to find topics like =Abouttochange.SomeTopic=. Make changes as required. 1. Edit the %WIKIPREFSTOPIC% topic: Rename or delete the web from the =WIKIWEBLIST= variable. 1. Edit the TWikiWebsTable topic: Rename or delete the web from the table. 1. Connect to the %WIKITOOLNAME% server: Login via Telnet or FTP. 1. Edit the data files: Go to =twiki/data= and rename or delete the web directory. 1. Edit the template files: Go to =twiki/templates= and rename or delete the web directory if present. 1. Edit the public files: Go to =twiki/pub= and rename or delete the web directory if present. -- MikeMannix - 29 Aug 2001 <br>
