Hi Rockpath,

Sorry you haven't received a response yet. I just saw this.

Are you still having this issue?

I want to use the listPages module to grab a bunch of pages within specific dates. So like from August 2013 to December 2013. But I'm confused how to do this. I think you use <>, but I'm not sure what would go after

Ah ok I just searched for Markdown and stumbled upon this thread not knowing there was a diffrence. I`ll request it.

The open source project has been dead for some time. Are you currently running it on your own server?

If you're hosting your site on and want this feature, you should request it on the Feedback site where the development will see it.

Just a Bump. Well I would really like an option or Markdown formatting.

I think the Open Source project is dead. Rather than re-type everything from a post I made almost a year ago, you can read it here:

The short version is that I have been successfully running an older version of WDOS for a few years, but the current version seems to be difficult/impossible to install cleanly. I haven't messed with it in a long while and I'm just enough of a Linux noob that I have trouble problem-solving issues when I run into them.

Since the version I'm running as well as the current version here are both far, far behind the current feature set of, I have a hard time recommending WDOS to anyone at this point.

i tried to install wikidot on my home server - running a somewhat current debian squeeze version.

First thing I noted is that the git submodule spyc from


could not be fetched. Therefore I downloaded the version directly from sourceforge

Then i used the postgresql-8.4 version to install tetex-bin tetex-extra seemed already be outdated and i did not use them. When running make the error occurs that the function set_curcfg does not exist. After some searching i found that this function is part of the tsearch2 module which is part of the postgresql-contrib package. After installing the package and running the sql file on the database (psql wikidot < tsearch2.sql) the next error occured -
Uncaught exception 'OzoneDatabaseException' with message 'error: ERROR: invalid value for parameter "default_text_search_config": "default".

/var/log/postgresql/postgresql-8.4-main.log dumps errors like that:

CET ERROR:  schema "ts2" does not exist
CET ERROR:  function set_curcfg(unknown) does not exist at character 8

So i was wondering if the Open Source version is still supported and if anyone has a solution to the problem?

Best Regards

Oi Adriano, muito obrigado. Dois dias quebrando a cabeça, sua solução foi a perfeita.
(Thanks, after 2 days working hardly, your solution to this is perfect!

too bad the wikidot content itself is not stored in GIT, because right now there is no way to get a complete backup of your data in wikidot.

Yes sir ! I got the same doubt

He told me clearly that we need to get Litespeed server installed. So I have immediately got the license and given to him . He installed it and tried the WikiDot installation.

Please be informed that the script "wikidot" needs litespeed webserver instead of Apache to work properly.

Later replied me that he got that error[0:]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)

As you said that litespeed is not necessary…I will tell him to un-install it. SO that I can save future costs Or I will keep using it

Could you please let me know how to proceed further with or without litespeed

Thank you!

I'm not sure why you use litespeed at all. Didn't you confuse it with Lighttpd?

Hello Developers !

We are installaing the script on CentOS with VPS Environment . A developer is helping us to install it.

We have installed Litespeed server too on his advice .When he started installation of wikidot,he got an error and unable to replicate it.

Error :[0:]: errno=Connection timed out
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection timed out)

Could you please let me know how to resolve it.

By the way , Is Litespeed really important for WikiDot installation? Right now we are using Litespeed 's trial version and needed to upgrade if it is necessary for Wikidot

Thank you!

Well, it can be done by converting Markdown files into Wikidot syntax, and then uploading via the API…

Re: add markdown support by pieterhpieterh, 29 Mar 2011 15:27

I doubt it - as far as I know the only features that are going to be added to the open source version of Wikidot, are those that are already being used at - and support for "Markdown" syntax isn't one of those features (not at the moment, anyway).

Thanks for this howto! Do you think we will be able to download a new version of wikidot soon?

That is understandable. I have been asking Michael and Piotr if they can release the current coding for modules. I have been wanting to port current modules to Wikidot Open Source. I was able to "emulate" a ListUsers module on OS but I don't want to rewrite every single new module.

However, I have not received replies from either of them…

I might be more interested if WikidotOS was an active project. I'm more anxious to see what comes out of Wikidot Clusters. I've kind of lost my enthusiasm for the Open Source project even though I continue to run the older version at my workplace. It really has been rock-solid for 3 years now. In fact, I can't remember the last time I've had to reboot that server!

I keep threatening to move my OS install to being hosted on Wikidot, but now I'm going to probably wait and see if the Cluster project goes anywhere.


Hello everyone,

I just read that recently, Amazon Web Services started a free usage tier allowing:

AWS Free Usage Tier (Per Month):
* 750 hours of Amazon EC2 Linux Micro Instance usage (613 MB of memory and 32-bit and 64-bit platform support) – enough hours to run continuously each month*
* 750 hours of an Elastic Load Balancer plus 15 GB data processing*
* 10 GB of Amazon Elastic Block Storage, plus 1 million I/Os, 1 GB of snapshot storage, 10,000 snapshot Get Requests and 1,000 snapshot Put Requests*
* 5 GB of Amazon S3 storage, 20,000 Get Requests, and 2,000 Put Requests*
* 30 GB per of internet data transfer (15 GB of data transfer “in” and 15 GB of data transfer “out” across all services except Amazon CloudFront)*
* 25 Amazon SimpleDB Machine Hours and 1 GB of Storage**
* 100,000 Requests of Amazon Simple Queue Service**
* 100,000 Requests, 100,000 HTTP notifications and 1,000 email notifications for Amazon Simple Notification Service**
* 10 Amazon Cloudwatch alarms**
* In addition to these services, the AWS Management Console is available at no charge to help you build and manage your application on AWS.

I can not test this myself because I don't have a credit card. However, I believe you could run Wikidot Open Source on an EC2 instance (which is free for one year under this tier).

Does anyone want to try it out?
