Synchronizing WikidPad to between multiple locations
- Synchro over FTP example
- Under WinXP, you can declare a WebDav folder and declare a new wiki onto that folder. Works great at my side.
- You can use Subversion
- Git works really great
- Doesn't require explicit renames (implicitly figures out when somethings been renamed)
- Doesn't require explicit deletes (it figures that out, too)

The following is just a plain text copy of the current version, links not working:
I am using getdropbox.com successfully for several month to sync my WikidPad-wikis to three computers. I use a original-sqlite database. This is important for it to work. In WikidPad's help you will find how to convert an existing wiki. I do not even quit WikidPad on one of the computers at all. Nevertheless I have no syncing problems. Since I don't quit WikidPad from time to time not all pages are found because they were changed on a different computer and were not indexed yet; then I do a database rebuild (in WikiPad's menu "Wiki") and everything is fine again; you can ignore the warning. Once in a while you should check your Wikis data directory for files with "conflicted copy" in the name; these are generated by Dropbox. You have to merge these manually. I recommend WinMerge? for doing that.
I do that with a WinSCP3-sync script, which I start in my logout.cmd.
It looks like this:
