Known issues


A XEM installation works like XWiki Enterprise (XE). Thus to install XEM check the XE installation instructions

When comapred to XE, XEM is different in the followin areas:

  • XEM 1.0 Milestone 1 does not support HSQLDB or DERBY. Actually at this time only MySQL is supported.
  • You'll have to configure your database so that it has the rights to create new databases. See the Virtualization guide for details on how to do this.

Once you have finished the standard XE-like installation, go to the XEM home page and follow the instructions there.
