phpWiki To TWiki Add-On

This script migrates phpWiki text files to a new TWiki site. The script is for people who switch over from phpWiki to TWiki. It is intended to be used once to migrate all existing topics into an empty TWiki web. It is a bit primitive but will work for most situations, you should customize it a bit maybe. Knowledge of Perl would be required to customize it.


  • Modify the script's constants and execute it.
