|JSPWiki version|
|[Idea Category]|GenericIdea
|[Idea Status]|NewIdea

I (try to) use JSPwiki on a AMD64 Debian System running the latest development files (Etch).
When I try to install JSPWiki it has a dependency on Tomcat4 whilst Tomcat5 was already installed. It was/is not trivial to get it up and running on Tomcat5.

Problem/Idea (also see Plugin proposal)
I seem not to be able to find in the documentation:
1. how to create another wiki beside the default one (why not supply a template WAR)
2. what to do about filesystem rights to get it working

There are 2 solutions:
1. a system administrators way by supplying instructions in wiki or readme-textfile format or even by using a config/install script
2. a user friendly way: by supplying a manager module
This is might be a bit hard because of system dependencies (RedHat <> Debian etc.) and a likely drawback on security and systemhardening as one is likely to edit stuff in /etc et cetera.
