Setting Up Wiki.js on ServerStadium


Wiki.js offers a sleek, user-friendly interface for creating and managing wikis and documentation. By setting up Wiki.js on ServerStadium’s infrastructure (VM Pricing, Dedicated Servers), you gain a powerful tool for collaborative content creation, whether for internal documentation, project wikis, or knowledge bases.

Setting Up Wiki.js on ServerStadium


  • A ServerStadium VM or dedicated server (VM Pricing, Dedicated Servers).
  • Basic knowledge of Node.js and MongoDB, as Wiki.js is built on these technologies.

Step 1: Select and Prepare Your ServerStadium Server

  1. Choose a Server: Pick a ServerStadium server based on your expected traffic and data storage needs.
  2. Server Setup:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade

Step 2: Install Node.js and MongoDB

Wiki.js requires Node.js for its server-side logic and MongoDB as its database:

  1. Install Node.js:

    curl -sL | sudo -E bash –
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

  2. Install MongoDB:

    sudo apt install -y mongodb

    Start and enable MongoDB:

    sudo systemctl start mongodb
    sudo systemctl enable mongodb

Step 3: Install and Configure Wiki.js

  1. Download Wiki.js:

    Visit the Wiki.js download page to get the latest release. Use wget to download it directly to your server.

    mkdir wiki
    tar xzf wiki-js.tar.gz -C ./wiki

  2. Configure Wiki.js:

    Navigate to the Wiki.js directory and run the configuration wizard:

    cd wiki
    node wiki configure

    Follow the prompts to configure Wiki.js, including setting up the database and the initial admin account.

Step 4: Run Wiki.js

  1. Start Wiki.js:

    node server

    This command starts Wiki.js on the default port (3000).

Step 5: Accessing Wiki.js

  1. Access Wiki.js:

    Navigate to http://your_server_ip:3000 in your web browser to access your Wiki.js instance.

  2. Complete Setup:

    Finalize the setup through the web interface and start creating content.
