A quick plug for a great little Wiki engine called DokuWiki by Andreas Gohr.

I've looked at everything. There are ten gazillion wiki engines out there. Here's an exhaustive list (i.e., try installing and evaluating a mere fraction of the wiki engines listed on this page, and you too will be exhausted!).

Why I like DokuWiki:

  • It works.
  • It installed quickly.
  • It has a nice set of features.
  • It's free.
  • It has a GPL license.
  • It has a nice look and feel, it doesn't look like 1994 HTML.
  • It's all PHP code.
  • It has RSS and Atom feeds built in!
  • It does not require a database back end, and the flat-file architecture is fast and responsive. (Why bother with a stinkin' database if you don't need it?)
  • It works.
I'm now using it for some intranet stuff at my company and it seems to be working out nicely.
