Legacy How to install WikiSuite

2021-07-20: WikiSuite will now support all major Linux distros. Thus, the information below is no longer updated. It may still be valid, or not. It will be eventually removed from this site, so anything relevant should be moved to the appropriate site. For anything related to ClearOS, please search among the following: ClearOS site, code base, Developer docs, Wiki or forum.

Please contact us if you would like to help out.

2020-11-13 We are currently testing https://gitlab.com/wikisuite/virtualmin-installer, which is a major change from and will eventually supersede pretty much everything below. Please test!

New documentation will be built at How to install WikiSuite

These guides assume the simple case where everything is installed on the same server (if there are exceptions, it will be specified in the guides).

You should start by installing the base server, and then install the components you need. If you do not have a server handy, or it's just to test, the simplest is to get a virtual machine with Linode. If you are a software developer, you'll be interested in the source code.


  • Standard hardware or a virtual machine
  • Minimum
    • 1 gig of RAM
    • 2 gigs if you are using many apps
    • 3 gigs if you are using Elasticsearch
    • At least 2 gigs of RAM and 2 CPU cores for videoconferencing for 5 to 10 people.
