-====== Setting up dokuwiki ====== 
-I've been a fan of [[https://​|dokuwiki]] for years and years, going back to my startup in 2005 when I used it to document our designs, usage, actions, etc. It's similar to the popular [[https://​​wiki/​MediaWiki|Mediawiki]] but offers better ACL. I've set it up multiple times in multiple ways, always a little concerned about security. I've had installed plugins with security flaws and it's just hard to stay on top. Most of the time I've deployed it for internal use inside a firewall. 
-Having worked at a startup for over 2 years that's heavily invested in docker, I've gotten to know docker really well. Not having had a website for quite a while, I finally decided to dip my toe in the water again using docker to contain my [[https://​|dokuwiki]] site. 
-[[https://​​stack/​dokuwiki|Bitnami]] seems to do a very nice job wrapping up applications with persistent data. The documentation is quite good. I had a little trouble turning on "nice links" since these require htaccess, and bitnami does a nice job of creating a secure deployment. If you aren't careful you could break their secure implementation,​ which I did at first trying to figure out what was going on. 
-The persistence,​ of course, is key for easy upgrades of dokuwiki. Just tear down and bring up the new container! 
-Letsencrypt is always easy to deploy and I've folded that in. Recently I've leaned towards not using "​www",​ supported using directs. All folded in for http and https.
