How to Install Wiki.js on Kubernetes with Helm

This guide will walk you through the process of installing Wiki.js using Helm, the Kubernetes package manager, ensuring a smooth and efficient setup.


Before we begin, ensure you have the following tools installed and configured:

  • Kubernetes - Installed locally or in a public cloud provider
  • kubectl - Configured to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster
  • Helm - For managing Kubernetes applications like Wiki.js
  • Kubernetes Ingress controller - For accessing the installation on a url

Step 1: Add the Helm chart repository

First, add the repository containing the Wiki.js helm chart:

helm repo add requarks
helm repo update
helm search repo wiki

Step 2: Create a namespace (optional)

Isolating applications within Kubernetes namespaces is a good practice. To deploy Wiki.js in its own namespace:

kubectl create namespace wikijs

Step 3: Install Wiki.js using Helm

Now, you'll install Wiki.js. The helm chart name is "wiki":

helm install wikijs requarks/wiki --namespace wikijs --create-namespace

Step 4: Verify the installation

After installation, verify that your Wiki.js deployment is running smoothly:

kubectl get pods --namespace wikijs
kubectl get all --namespace wikijs

Step 5: Customize the Wiki.js installation (optional)

This process may require customizing your deployment through a customized values.yaml file, which specifies configuration options.

helm install wikijs requarks/wiki --values values.yaml --namespace wikijs

Step 6: Access Wiki.js

Accessing Wiki.js will depend on your chosen service configuration (LoadBalancer, NodePort, or Ingress). For Ingress access, ensure an Ingress controller is operational in your cluster.

Follow the instructions in the helm install notes, the output of Step 3.
