Divergent Preferences in Staging Development Production

Let’s list preferences that should not be the same. This is useful if you copy a site from development to production. They could be part of environment variables

Likely different

  • db/local.php (unless on different servers)
  • unified_elastic_index_prefix (if both point to the same Elasticsearch instance or cluster)
  • memcache_prefix
  • tiki_cdn
  • Authentication method: If you are connection to Active Directory or LDAP in production, you may want to change this setting in development
  • cookie_name (unless on different servers)

May be different

  • .htaccess setting; You may not have full control over the servers (Apache modules, etc).
    Also: If Tiki is not in the root web directory, you usually have to set the Apache RewriteBase in htaccess. This could different between your environments.
  • Security & Performance setting; The production domain and website may use different security setting than the development website (SSL certificate). Same goes for performance setting that are usually OFF while developing and should be enable and tuned on prod.

Also to be careful about: If you are storing files on disk and dev / staging / prod are on the same server (ex: with sub-domains): You should make sure they are pointing to different directories (otherwise, you delete a file on the dev server, and it deletes it on the production server, because the storage is shared). See ideal scenario for file storage

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
