Configuration file

This article is intended for wiki administrators.

The main way to configure your Mycorrhiza instance is through the configuration file. It is located at the root of your wiki structure and is called config.ini.

The file is generated automatically when you create a new wiki:

# Generate a new wiki
$ mycorrhiza best-wiki
# See what's inside
$ ls best-wiki
cache		config.ini	static		wiki.git

The file is written in the .ini format.

Example configuration

The auto-generated file is the best example (it has comments too).

Here's an example of a configuration file adapted from the default:

WikiName = My wiki
NaviTitleIcon = 🐑

HomeHypha = home
UserHypha = u
HeaderLinksHypha = header-links

ListenAddr =
URL = https://wiki

UseAuth = true
AllowRegistration = true


Root section

  • WikiName: string. The name your wiki has. It is shown in the header by default and in other places. Default: Mycorrhiza Wiki.

  • NaviTitleIcon: string. The icon shown before the colon in the navigational titles above each hypha. You may want to use an emoji or HTML here. Default: 🍄 (mushroom emoji).


  • HomeHypha: string. The name your home hypha has. Default: home.

  • UserHypha: string. The name of the hypha that is parent of all user hyphae. Default: u.

  • ListenAddr: number. What port is used for serving the web interface of Mycorrhiza. Default: 1737.
