    What you are seeing is the result of the Perl (CGI) configure script for TWiki being returned as text to you, rather than being executed.

    The problem is with your Apache2 setup (/etc/apache2/conf.d).

    What I'd recommend is using Foswiki instead - it's completely upward compatible with TWiki and very well supported by the developers. The Apache2 CGI setup for Foswiki is automatic and doesn't need any tweaking at all.

    On Ubuntu, installing Foswiki is very simple, just did it recently on Ubuntu Hardy but will work on any version I believe:

    1. Go to http://foswiki.org/Extensions/DebianPackage and read the first bit - this package works fine on Ubuntu.

    2. Go to http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_debian/ (linked from that page) and follow instructions to edit /etc/apt/sources.list

    3. Run this command to install (this does the Apache setup for you):
    Code:
    apt-get install foswiki
    4. Answer a few questions, e.g. setting a password

    5. Foswiki should now be working - go to http://yourhost/foswiki/bin/view to see if it works, and into the Sandbox to test it.

    Hi Cato2,

    I'm vacillating on the decision to install twiki or foswiki. I am starting with the latest Ubuntu 11.04 Server distro. Would you still recommend foswiki over twiki? Is the install procedure the same?

    Thanks,

    I would recommend Foswiki - almost all the TWiki developers switched to Foswiki in 2008 and it is actively developed. It's easy to install on any supported Ubuntu version, just follow the guide at http://foswiki.org/Extensions/DebianPackage - essentially you add a repository at fosiki.com to APT, then do
    Code:
    aptitude install apache2 foswiki
    and you have a working installation.

    The fosiki.com repository also has 200+ Foswiki extensions packaged.
