Installing MojoMojo

On FreeBSD, install the p5-MojoMojo package. A Debian package for MojoMojo will soon be available.

System Requirements

  • Perl 5.8+ and Catalyst 5.7+
  • database: in theory, any database back-end supported by DBIx::Class. MojoMojo has been successfully tested with SQLite, PostgreSQL and MySQL.
  • memory requirements: on Linux, 60Mb per FastCGI process, regardless of the wiki database size or back-end type
  • image manipulation libraries for attachment support: libpng-dev libgif-dev libjpeg-dev (libjpeg62-dev)


  1. install Catalyst. This can be as easy as cpan Catalyst::Runtime
  2. install the image manipulation libraries, libpng-dev libgif-dev libjpeg-dev (or libjpeg62-dev), on which Imager depends
  3. install MojoMojo:
  4. configure MojoMojo

Here is an older example installation progress.
