While most of its ecosystem revolves around methods for running the program locally (and often privately) or in Google or Dropbox storage, I’ve come across a growing number of people hosting their instances on their own servers and using them publicly as a melange of personal websites, blogs, and wikis.
Has anyone tried hosting one (particularly the newer TW5) through Reclaim before? Of the many methods, I’m curious which may be the easiest/simplest from a set up perspective?

TiddlyBlink is an adaptation of TiddlyWiki with the goal of helping you see connections between your ideas, and move quickly from one idea to another. It was inspired by the bi-directional linking found in Roam (https://roamresearch.com/), but built with capabilities already available in TiddlyWiki (https://tiddlywiki.com). See my example file here.
This is how I edit and update my website and how I think about the way I've been structuring the website . The main tools that I use for this are TiddlyWiki NodeJS, any modern web browser, simple command line scripts, and FileZilla. Links to these are below.

Fair warning; this solution is a bit of an overkill. If all you want to do is encrypt Tiddlywiki, it has it's own encryption utility that is every bit as secure which you can read about here: http://tiddlywiki.com/#Encryption. Otherwise, if you also would like to backup other content along with TiddlyWiki, EncFS may be the solution for you: This tut gives a brief overview on how to use EncFS to encrypt theTiddlyWiki data file before it is uploaded to the cloud.

This is a "not so quick" introduction to TiddlyDesktop. TiddlyDesktop works with Ruston files, which are self-editable script files that can be displayed securely from any browser.
This tut introduces the TiddlyWiki markup language and offers a few suggestions around common formatting problems.
This tutorial covers the creation of a task tracking system in TiddlyWiki that is traditionally found in similar note taking software.
This tutorial covers the creation of the Contents tab and how to organize your notes there for easier accessibility.
This tutorial is aimed at giving you a basic foundation so that you can start using TiddlyWiki right away. Here we take a look at the technology behind Tiddlywiki, how to install it and create your first Tiddler.

I’ve been having some issues in self-hosting a TiddlyWiki the way I’d like to. If anyone has any clear cut documentation on how to host a TiddlyWiki on one’s own domain name, I’d appreciate it. The documentation doesn’t seem as clear as I would expect (or perhaps more likely my server is having issues propagating/connecting?). If anything it’s muddled by the fact that they can seemingly be hosted in dozens of places one might not otherwise expect. My primary reservation is that it looks to me like they’re designed as single user instances, so I’m not exactly sure how Kicks et al. are effectuating their hyperconversations. Part of my issue is my mental model of some of the wikis involved in addition to the busy-ness of the sites’ themes, not to mention some of the non-standard conversational style on some. (I’ll get there eventually.)
I’ve also been using the IndieWeb’s MediaWiki for several years, so I’ve become much better at how it works as well as the ins-and-outs of the markup and how to do some slightly more advanced things using it. I’d set one up nearly a year ago this month and used it sporadically at best.
One of the bigger problems with my MediaWiki install was that somehow I wasn’t able to log into the primary account to do some of the necessary administrative functions. Today I got fed up with being hampered a bit and went spelunking into my install to see where things went wrong, suspecting that it was a one button install issue.
After digging through some documentation, I dug into the mySQL database and found a daunting looking [Blob] in the user_email field. Why couldn’t it be an easy-to-edit field? I not knowing anything better to do, I downloaded it, opened it up in my text editor, and discovered that I’d managed to leave a letter out of my own name in the email address! No wonder it wouldn’t work and the system wouldn’t let me reset my email address or password. A quick text edit later, the email was fixed, I uploaded the (now less intimidating) [Blob], and did a reset of the password in the admin interface, and we’re back in business! I’m always glad not to have borked the entire database and site.
If nothing else, it’ll help me in my explorations. Onward.
