Welcome to the myhosting.com Forums.
I would like to install Dokuwiki on my Linux hosting. It is file-based and looks quite straightforward to install and use.
What are the permissions necessary for directories/folders with respect to my Myhosting account, and is it secure? I am also not sure what/how to set up an .htaccess file for it.
Re: Dokuwiki installation
Regarding a .htaccess file, you can simply create a plain text file and upload it to your site. Some operating systems (like Windows) may not allow you to create a file called .htaccess. However, you can create a file called htaccess.txt (or similar), upload it to your Linux-based hosting account, then rename it to .htaccess.
After skimming the rest of the security document, I don't see anything which jumps out at me that shouldn't work.
