=====File Permissions=====
((/Doc/English/FilePermissions Change the permissions)) on the following directories to be writable
##touch config/config.php##
##chmod 666 config/config.php##

Example: 
##chmod 0755 _cache/config/ _cache/feed/ _cache/page/ _cache/query/   _cache/session/ _cache/template/ file/backup/ file/global/ file/perpage/ file/thumb/ xml/##

##chmod 0660 config/lock config/lock_ap sitemap.xml##

reset after installation / upgrade
##chmod 644 config/config.php##

=====Path for session values==
Check if the provided path for ##CACHE_SESSION_DIR## is correct. The default value is ##/tmp## but may vary in your environment. 
Furthermore you may want to change this to a ((/Dev/Components/SessionHandling custom folder)) for the application (e.g. ##_cache/session##) .

**constants.php**: 
%%const CACHE_SESSION_DIR				= '/tmp';%%

====((/Doc/English/AdminPanel Admin panel))==
  * to login define the ##recovery_password## in the config.php file first
    1. call the ##""{{admin_recovery}}""## action as Admin and generate the password hash for your recovery_password
    2. add the password hash: ##'recovery_password' => 'add hash here',##
  * Don't forget to delete the _cache/config/config.php afterwards.
  * **you must be logged in as member of the Admin group** in the first place **to access the admin panel**
  * call yourwiki/admin.php
  * enter your recovery_password

If your Admin panel gets locked reset **config/lock_ap** from ##1## to ##0##

====Themes==
{{anchor href="theme_migration"}}
If you want to keep your layout, you have to use a program like Meld or WinMerge to merge your CSS and other theme files with the new files in the folder **((source:6.0/wacko/theme/default wacko/theme/default))**.

You can write or adapt your theme also without using the ((/Dev/Projects/Templatest/Usage template engine)).

-> ((/Dev/Themes Themes))
-> ((/Doc/English/ThemeGuide Theme guide with example templates))

====Backwards Compatibility==
We dropped compatibility code for older PHP and MySQL versions. R6.0 requires at least PHP 7.3 and MySQL 5.7. To use WackoWiki with older PHP or MySQL versions, use the older branch of ((/Dev/Release/R5.5/ReleaseNotes 5.5.x releases)), which you can find on the ((/Download/LegacyVersions download page)). 

====Known Issues==
