Ikiwiki on Debian
Using apt-get I have ikiwiki 3.20190228-1 on an amd64 Buster.
From /home/bob I run:
$ ikiwiki --setup Bob2021.setup --wrappers
and see this error:
"cannot write to /home/bob/Bob2021/.ikiwiki/lockfile: No such
file or directory"
Here is the top of that Bob2021. setup file. I hope I have the
syntax correct for the userdir tildes
# IkiWiki::Setup::Yaml - YAML formatted setup file
# Setup file for ikiwiki.
# Passing this to ikiwiki --setup will make ikiwiki generate
# wrappers and build the wiki.
# Remember to re-run ikiwiki --setup any time you edit this file.
# name of the wiki
# contact email for wiki
# users who are wiki admins
# users who are banned from the wiki
# where the source of the wiki is located
# where to build the wiki
# base url to the wiki
# url to the ikiwiki.cgi
# do not adjust cgiurl if CGI is accessed via different URL
# filename of cgi wrapper to generate
# mode for cgi_wrapper (can safely be made suid)

A person of great honour in Ireland (who was pleased to
stoop so low as to look into my mind) used to tell me that
my mind was like a conjured spirit, that would do mischief
if I did not give it employment.
