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 page or visit our Forum.

Perché Kiwix non è disponibile per Mac PPC?
Non abbiamo l'architettura Mac PPC e questa architettura è deprecata.
Dove posso trovare i nuovi contenuti?
Kiwix uses the ZIM format. We release our own ZIM files which are available for download in the Kiwix library (in the software). You can also use the Book creator on Wikipedia to generate your own ZIM files.
È possibile aggiornare un file ZIM?
Non è possibile aggiornare un file ZIM, tuttavia puoi scaricare un nuovo file ZIM con una versione aggiornata dei contenuti.
Come posso generare un file ZIM da me?
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 some information.
Come posso ottimizzare l'indice del motore di ricerca?
Esegui lo script "./kiwix-compact" (disponibile solo su GNU/Linux), questo dovrebbe ridurre l'utilizzo del disco di al più il 50%
Come installare un file ZIM pre-indicizzato su Mac OSX?
Sposta o copia la cartella "data" in "/Applications/". Probabilmente sarà necessario caricare il file ZIM dalla "libreria" di Kiwix.
C'è un forum dove gli utenti di Kiwix possono scambiare esperienze e aiutarsi?
Yes, it is located at
I have downloaded a ZIP file (pre-indexed ZIM file) but I can't unpack it, the file seems to be corrupted. What should I do?
Use an 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.
I can't copy Kiwix on my USB flash drive because the index file is too big.
USB flash drives are often formated using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. We recommend to use NTFS which can deal with big files and is broadly supported.
How can I launch Kiwix with a specific article?
You need to launch Kiwix from the command line using the -articleByUrl option. For example:
kiwix.exe -articleByUrl "zim://A/foo.html" bar.zim
