This is the Kiwix Frequently Asked Questions (or FAQ) page. If you don't find an answer to your question, please consider to read the Help or visit our Forum.

Warum gibt es Kiwix nicht für PPC-Macs?
Wir verfügen nicht über die entsprechende Hardware. Außerdem ist diese Architektur nicht mehr aktuell.
Wo gibt es weitere Inhalte?
Kiwix verwendet das ZIM format. Auf der Startseite gibt es unsere vorbereiteten ZIM-Dateien. Man kann auch den "Book creator" der Wikipedia verwenden, um eigene ZIM-Dateien zu erstellen.
Is it possible to update a ZIM file?
It is not possible to update a ZIM file itself, but you may download a new ZIM file with updated versions of the contents.
How can I build by myself a ZIM file?
To export articles from Wikipedia please go to this page. For any other use case, this is unfortunately still too complicated. Please read this page if you want to have a few information.
How may I optimize the search engine index?
Launch the script "./kiwix-compact" (only available on GNU/Linux) and this should reduce disk use by almost 50%
How to install a pre-indexed ZIM file on Mac OSX?
Move or copy the "data" directory in "/Applications/Kiwix.app/Contents/". You will probably need to go to the Kiwix "library" to load the ZIM content.
Is there a user forum where kiwix users can exchange experiences and help each other?
Yes, it is located at https://forum.kiwix.org
I have downloaded a ZIP file (pre-indexed ZIM file) but I can't unpack it, the file seems to be corruped. What should I do?
Use a unpacking software which supports the ZIP64 format (ZIP format for big files), like for example 7-zip. If this still fails, then your file was corrupted during the transfer, please restart the download using Bittorrent, then it will work.
