I'm trying to install and setup an ikiwiki in a fully automated way (using ansible, for info), and I'd like to know if it's possible to have an automated setup step ( ikiwiki --setup /etc/ikiwiki/auto.setup ).

Apparently I can reassign all variables in the .setup file or even on the command line, but if I set $admin to a certain value it keeps prompting me for a password. So :

  • can I set the admin password somewhere in the .setup file or on the command line ?

  • if I can't, can I avoid setting any (and re-define one maybe later) ?
