SID-02256: GUI is not shown when navigating to http://server/do/configure
|| TWiki version:

I've run through the installation instructions at
And now when I navigate to http://server/do/configure
all I can see is the contents of the file.
Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this?

Discussion and Answer
Check your Apache settings. This means that Apache considers the twiki/bin an html directory; it needs to be a script directory. Run the ApacheConfigGenerator
and you should be OK.

The following is my TWiki Apache config, created with the ApacheConfigGenerator http://pastebin.com/h7JGBs4i
I'm on Apache 2.4.18 and this config is in /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/twiki.conf

This looks like you need to enable the CGI module:
sudo a2enmod cgi
sudo apache2ctl restart
Per default, the CGI module is available, but not enabled in Debian/Ubuntu. I guess that after entering that command you'll get a harmless note that it will enable
, which is just as well.
This seems to be a recurring issue... The config file created by the ApacheConfigGenerator
writes it explicitly as its third line, but I guess this is the wrong spot (config files are for machines, not for humans). The hint should go in the TWikiInstallationGuide
, maybe someone will add corresponding information for other Linux distributions.

Looks like that's done it, thank you!!
