A wiki topic and attachment store using the RCS revision control system
This is the modern implementation of the classic Foswiki RCS based store. It has been moved into a contrib as other store implementations have emerged, and the RCS store's status as "the one and only" store implementation has been eroded.
Trashweb should be be cleared periodically, by archiving (saving) the text and RCS files if required (recommended), then deleting them from the
Trashdirectory is all that is required for maintenance, it is possible to grant
Trashadmin privileges to multiple users, while strictly limiting server access.
rcscommands under the control of Foswiki. It is generally not recommended on systems running with mod_perl, and is unavailable on Windows.
There is a configuration option embedded in the RCSLite module that can significantly improve performance, It is not enabled by default because it will disable the capability of storing a revision comment with each save. The developers do not believe that Foswiki uses this feature, but as it might be used by non-default extensions, it has not been disabled.To improve performance, (and disable storage of save comments) apply the following patch. Paste it into a file named
"patchrcs"in your Foswiki installation directory, and then apply the patch by running
patch -p0 < patchrcs. You can also just edit the file directly and change the
1;, around line 105.
