I’m running my NCP on a RPI4 for several month and it is a joy. Thanks for this piece of Software!
Lately i was tinkering with setting up my own personal wiki (dokuwiki – to be specific) on a different machine.
Since NCP is running 24/7 i thought about putting the wiki on there – for obvious reasons, i guess.
In fear ob breaking my NCP i created a copy of it and tried to set up an additional website(?) by creating a new wiki in
/var/www/wiki/ and setting up ownership to www-data.
Then I created a new .conf file in
/etc/apache2/sites-available by basically copy/pasting stuff together from
/etc/apache2/sites-available/nextcloud.conf (without fully understanding how this works), but changing the port to 4444 (for no specific reason).
After enabling the new site and restarting i managed to reach the wiki from within my home network. Nice.
I did this as a prove of concept for myself, since i have no experience with webservers.
Since I kept a copy of the “clean” NCP i reversed back to it and was wondering how to properly do/ configure this to run correctly alongside NCP without breaking it or interfering.
Could someone help me with this?
- Was something i explained horribly wrong? e.g. do i compromise security by doing it this way?
- Is there a way to configure it with its own hostname instead of port (like the NCP config panel)?
If yes: can someone tell me how to do so without messing up NCP?
- is it possible to access the additional site without security warning from browser? how?
- (optional) what things are to consider if I would make the second page available from outside my home network? Or would you consider this a bad Idea?
This is completely optional since access from home network should be suitable for my needs! (… for now ).
Yeah, I’m asking a lot of questions, but your help would be highly appreciated!
Let me know if you need further information.
