Opensource Wiki Software
April 20, 2008 3:43 AM   Subscribe

Open source Wiki software! I'm looking to setup an open source wiki service very similar to wikipedia.org (but slightly different). However I know there is open source software available to download...

...

I'm looking for:

1) Totally open editing (if registered)
2) Report if abused content
3) Upload images for the wiki post
4) SEO friendly i.e. www.wikipedia.org/post_name

Php, SQL, etc

Very simple, I like the way wowwiki.com is run. I know they use opensource but I dont know which one.

Cheers if you can help.

WoWiki is "part of" Wikia which uses the Mediawiki engine. Mediawiki is free and open-source, and there are a large number of plugins and customisation options available.

For smaller wikis, I highly recommend dokuwiki. If you're after something like Wikipedia, use Mediawiki as alby said.

Drupal does wiki. Some starting points:

Make a wiki with Drupal or put/integrate a wiki into Drupal? | groups.drupal.org
Wiki | groups.drupal.org
Wiki installation profile | drupal.org

I don't know where or how you want to run your wiki, but Bitnami offers both Dokuwiki and Mediawiki stacks that are super easy to install. It's a very painless way of installing a personal wiki :)
