Git Storage

Wiki.js supports storing documentation in git storage using the Git module.

  • To get started, open a Web Terminal and generate the keys in /app/data/ssh/id_rsa (see below). Be sure to leave the passphrase empty as required by Wiki.js.
# ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa): /app/data/ssh/id_rsa
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): 
Enter same passphrase again: 
Your identification has been saved in /app/data/ssh/id_rsa
Your public key has been saved in /app/data/ssh/
  • Create the repo directory and fix permissions
# mkdir -p /app/data/repo
# chown -R cloudron:cloudron /app/data/repo /app/data/ssh
  • Use the following settings when configuring Wiki.js git storage:
    • Set the SSH Private Key Mode to path
    • Set SSH Private Key Path to /app/data/ssh/id_rsa (generated above)
    • Set the Local Repository Path to /app/data/repo (created above)
    • Newer GitHub repositories use the branch name as main instead of master. Use the appropriate branch name in Wiki.js config page.
