Renaming or Deleting a Web

NOTE: If you plan to rename the TWiki.Main web, remember that TWiki stores user and group topics in %MAINWEB%, default named Main. That means, every WikiName signature - Main.SomeUserName - points to it and would need updating (unless the variable, %MAINWEB%.SomeUserName, is used throughout).

  1. Prepare your site: Search each web for links to the target web, searching topic text for Oldwebname., including the dot so you'll find references like Oldwebname.SomeTopic.
Changed:
<
<
    • Make changes as required, to Newwebname.SomeTopic or better yet, to =%MAINWEB%.SomeTopic.
>
>
    • Make changes as required, to Newwebname.SomeTopic or better yet, to %MAINWEB%.SomeTopic.
 
  1. Edit the TWikiPreferences topic: Rename or delete the web from the WIKIWEBLIST variable.
  2. Edit the TWikiWebsTable topic: Rename or delete the web from the table.
  3. Login to the TWiki server, via Telnet or FTP.
