Bug Description

Binary package hint: ikiwiki

I just tried to install this. To get it working at all, I had to manually enable the userdir module, which is something I only discovered after a lot of experimentation and googling. Then, in order to get the CGI working, I had to follow the instructions here:

http://ikiwiki.info/tips/dot_cgi/

None of this should be necessary. If you install apache2 and ikiwiki and then run ikiwiki --setup /etc/ikiwiki/auto.setup, you should be up and running. And most definitely, if it tells you "url: http://Winter/~mat/wiki" then that URL should actually *work*.
