You administer Wikis using the wsadmin client to specify properties in a configuration file, or run administrative commands.
You edit the configuration file to control how and when various Wikis operations take place. You use the administrative commands to perform tasks that manipulate Wikis content. Changes to the configuration file require node synchronization and a restart of the Wiki server before they take effect. Changes made using administrative commands take effect immediately.
