Actually, I'm wondering this, too. Does dokuwiki absolutely need to be installed in a root? I'm asking because I was hoping to keep it hidden away until ready, but the dokuwiki (which is the reason I chose this one...well, a deciding factor at least) is already quite extensive...

Yep, tried that. In two weeks I'll be able to put the site in the root, make all necessary changes in the paths and check out functionality there.
Regarding "hiding" the wiki. Why don't you simply not link to it in any of your menus? The wiki's still there, it's just not accessible unless you know the url, and the wiki's access can be restricted so it can be excluded from searches as well.
