Following the instructions here: https://github.com/openzim/mwoffliner.
Set Up redis-server for mwoffliner
Unix socket section of the redis-server config (
/etc/redis/redis.conf) so that the unix socket is created and has the correct permissions.
unixsocket /dev/shm/redis.sock unixsocketperm 777
(assuming you're on debian)
mwoffliner --mwUrl=https://wiki.dfn.net.au --adminEmail=-adminEmailfirstname.lastname@example.org --mwApiPath=/api.php --mwWikiPath=/ --mwModulePath=/load.php
This will create a .zim file from the wiki.
Note: many pages aren't being scraped correctly using this method as of April 2019.
