I’m looking for wiki software for a project I’m resurrecting and I’m mystified by the overwhelming number of fragmented versions available, defunct or otherwise. My requirements are pretty simple: support my server (PHP4, mySQL, CGI), WYSIWYG editor, and free. Doesn’t sound too complicated does it? Well apparently it is. I’m still looking. Looking at this comparison, MediaWiki is the closest as it has alpha-level support. Twiki is another possibility, as is Wikka. MoinMoin 1.5 has WYSIWYG, but it requires PYTHON on the server, which won’t work for me.
Basically, I’m overwhelmed and frustrated. I guess I’ll just have to try a few and see which I like best. The WYSIWYG editor seems to be the most difficult aspect. TinyMCE and FCKeditor are both great, free WYSIWYG editors, but I’m not sure if they are easily integrated into any wiki server. Basically, I believe that users should have to learn some type of odd wiki-tags to contribute and format, so I’m holding out until I find what I want.
