Wiki page names

Hi wisedraco - please try not to use version numbers in Wiki pagenames when you create them… what if Joomla or Slackware update their versions? You can use the tag “slackware_14.0” if you want people to know that this was tested on Slackware 14.0.

Also, try to keep the name of the page as short as possible. I would have preferred “joomla” as a page-name instead of the ugly “setting_up_joomla_2.5_on_slackware_14.0”. The resulting URL will be easier to remember and easier to type.
If you agree, I will rename your page into “joomla”

yes, but config may be different onb different versions. for example, on my old box (slack 11 and old mysql) for utf8 option in my.cnf i using default-character-set=utf8 and it's work! when i try to use this in slack 14, newer mysql, i get message “invalid option in config!” and shutting down mysqld. i try small research, and found, now we must use another options in config, for have the same result. for that i prefer give slack version in pagename. there people may know, in slack 14 my recept works. if there use another version, they may understand -howto is for another version, as so, if any of howto commands not work in desired manner, people may know, it is not because somehow is wrong with howto, on his own OS \ libraries \ etc. when it try to use this howto for another version, it understand, it may not work because different versions of soft may have different syntax \ etc. for that reason, i think, use versions is good practice when creating an howto… also i, when seek howto or so with google, using a versions too - for example “sendmail greylist slackware 14”… i think, it be a good reason? — John Ciemgals 2013/02/12 09:40

You have not convinced me… I will rename the page to “joomla”. The content will still be search-able, and the page title still mentions “Setting up Joomla 2.5 CMS in Slackware 14.0 64bit”. The content of a page is not connected to the name of the file on the server. We want the filenames to be as short and clean as possible.
Hint: If you want to give instructions for multiple versions of Joomla on Slackware, you can create separate chapters on the same page, such an approach would be perfectly acceptible.

Re-using existing Wiki content

Another word of advice: you added a section “Start setup MySQL” and basically repeated what we already have in Install MySQL On Slackware (another page name which is longer than I would have liked). Perhaps it is more elegant to remove your section of text about setting up MySQL and just add the pointer to that other Wiki page. That way, there is no duplication of information (and you only have to maintain one instruction set).

yes, i see that page, but it relatively large, and with many paths ( automated setting path, manual and so), as so, i think, it be good in this howto to give a “short way” and bottom of page, in “links” section give link to install_mysql_on_slackware for those, who gives more info in that subject ? — John Ciemgals 2013/02/12 09:41

Questions about the Content

John, I believe that this sentence which you just changed, is now incorrect: “In /etc/httpd/httpd.conf, you can comment out the VirtualHost configuration, if you intend run many webservers on your host. If not, leave it, as it is
If you want to run multiple servers (i.e. multiple virtual hosts), then you must remove the comment character at the beginning of the line “#Include /etc/httpd/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf”.
If you do not want to run multiple servers, you can leave that comment where it is.
The English phrase “comment out” means “put a comment character in front so that the line becomes a comment”.

Thanks for clarification, Eric! before i see that your explanation, i think a “comment out” is uncomment… ok, i do some minor changes on that material, based on experience who i get in past weeks. yesterday i learned, if you want to use “Smart search” in joomla 2.5, your database user must be “ALTER” its database, if not - at site indexing stage for smart search you got an error… P.S. maybe you can help me - there is an easy way to see all my articles?
