Wiki

Posted by archworx on November 27, 2006

A wiki is a Web site that enables users to add new content or edit existing content. As soon as you post on a wiki all users are able to add or change your original content without needing any permissions. The purpose of the wiki to make it easy to collaborate on shared documents, once you publish your document; you relinquish ownership of that content. Most advanced wiki software allows advanced editing such as rich text fonts, graphics and HTML tags. This makes collaboration easy and fast. The term “wiki” comes from the Hawaiian word for “quick”.

For our internal wiki, we choose to use MoinMoin which is a python wiki engine, its open source and very easy to setup and use.

For installation on IIS 6.0 on a windows 2003 server, use the following instructions
