Table of contents


  • the user will attach a ZIP archive to the import page (size: max 30MB)
  • the application will read the archive content and will list the available files for import only from the following folders: <dokuwiki dir>/data/pages/ and optionally <dokuwiki dir>/data/media/
  • the user will select if he wants to import the content as an existing version or as a new wiki page 
  • next he will select the files he wants to import from the available list and he will confirm the import action
  • a list of all files and their status is displayed at the end (with a message if they were imported or not)


  • Configuration options are available in the XWiki administration section for: script path (path to the Dokuwiki to XWiki extension script on the server), root folder (import pages from the DokuWiki archive after this folder), default root space name (create pages after the root folder in this space)
  • some folders are ignored: <dokuwiki dir>/data/pages/playground/ and <dokuwiki dir>/data/pages/wiki/
  • the script will read the archive files and save them temporary on the server in <server path>/output<datetime>/
    next it will run the Dokuwiki to XWiki extension on the server on the selected files to generate the xwiki files
  • pages will be created by the extension for the xwiki txt files
  • space homepages  will be created to map the dokuwiki hierarchy folders and parents are set for the imported files
  • display the text from page bienvenue.txt (if available) as homepage of the spaces created above (use the include macro)
  • the images from the media folder are optionally imported as attachments for wiki pages
  • the files on the server are cleaned up: <server path>/output<datetime>/
