Foswiki Support - by the community, for the community

Quickly find answers to your questions by searching our Support Web. This is maintained by the Foswiki community (buy them a virtual beer if they do a particularly fine job).

Start your question here, and expand on it on the next page

TIP But wait a second ...

To prevent you from asking a question that has already been answered, please browse the FAQs and Answered Support Questions first!

If you post your question: please be as clear, specific, and thorough as you can.

ALERT! Important: In case you think that you discovered a security issue that could potentially compromise Foswiki installations, please send an e-mail to the SecurityTaskTeam via the foswiki-security mailing list at We will follow up in a timely manner with a fix and will inform administrators before the issue gets public.

Note: You cannot subscribe to the foswiki-security mailing list. It is for the security team only. To keep yourself up to date with security announcements please subscribe to the foswiki-announce mailing list

These questions are asked a lot on IRC:
  1. Why can't my scripts in bin get executed?
  2. My page loads, but the page looks all wrong
  3. Where do I create an admin account?
