Windows: Detailed Quick Installation

MoinMoin relies on Python which requires a separate install on Windows.

Download & Install Python

  • Go to http://www.python.org/download/ and download the Python installer.

  • Run the installer!
    • If you want to save some space, you can unselect all but the first two options (you won't need the 'Test Suite', 'Utility Scripts', or 'Documentation' unless you plan to develop in Python).
    • The installer will automatically associate .py files with Python.

Download & Expand MoinMoin

  1. Download the latest MoinMoin from the MoinMoinDownload page.

  2. Extract the files to a folder (using a utility such as 7-zip or similar).

  3. Simply double-click wikiserver.py which you will find in this folder.

Daily Use

  1. Double-click on the wikiserver.py file and a black command window will open.

  2. Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/.

  3. To quit the wiki, simply close the command window.
