Re: Did anybody deploy a wiki as app to CF?

James Bayer

i started a list of 3rd party compatible apps [1] for cloud foundry. if you
know of apps that work, please add it on the wiki, especially if there are
setup steps.

We've successfully deployed Drupal (7.3x), we used the blog article as a
starting point, but are using the vanilla php bp (so no varnish) and are
using s3fs module against our own internal s3 store for images. Modules and
themes need to be pushed as part of the app so we dont loose them on
restage activities.

In addition we have mediawiki running. We dont have any s3 filesystem
configured so we need to push images along with the main app otherwise we
loose them. For this reason its not a general purpose wiki.
LocalSettings.php was modified to read the VCAP_SERVICES data for mysql.

Be careful with this. It uses a custom build pack (fork of standard PHP
BP) and last I saw, it wasn't updated for `cflinuxfs2`.


if you're in a private deployment, the services shown for drupal are
both available as oss and listed on

mediawiki is a php app with mysql as an option:

but i'm not aware of install instructions for that. there are other

Hi Stephan,

changes, it

Warden container. Therefore, they get lost when the app is restarted.

wouldn't be to hard to change the code to use an S3 bucket as a storage
solution, I just didn't bother yet.

I will clean up my local changes and document them, then I'll push them
to github.

P.S.: I also looked for some other open source wiki engines. I didn't
