running scripts on godaddy acount...

Trying to run python and cgi scripts on a non-dedicated godaddy account. (ie, I dont have shell access). But my ftp program can transmit 'raw' commands to the server. I uploaded a cgi script called "pythontest.cgi" (all this in the context of trying to install moinmoin on my godaddy account). I got the pythontest.cgi script from the moinmoin instructions on installing it. I do have python, supposedly, on my account (its in usr/bin/python). I'm supposed to be able to run CGI scripts from the cgi folder (which is where it is now). I uploaded it in ASCII (as opposed to binary) as they told me to. Godaddy support hasnt been very useful beyond this point. My question is: how in the world do I execute "pythontest.cgi"? I tried putting it in the address bar as a url (with full path) in mozilla. Got an internal server error. Any ideas? Has anyone run scripts off a godaddy account? Has anyone installed a wiki on a non-dedicated godaddy account? Thanks...

Offline-capable wiki?

I'd like to get my group at work using a wiki for certain projects. However, I've uncovered very few wiki implementations that would allow offline editing and syncback; this is a dealbreaker. Any ideas? [more inside]

Help me pick a suitable wiki

What recommendations do you have for an intranet wiki? I need: - page-level access controls - a simple calendar of events (birthdays, travel dates, etc) - written in PHP I love MediaWiki, but there is no concept of private pages (there is a plugin script that supports it, but I want something in the core to ease upgrades). I've also checked out Wackowiki which looks good, but doesn't seem to have any calendar integration. Any suggestions?

How Can I Use Wikipedia's Content?

I would like to start a Comic Book Encyclopedia (Which I am calling, for lack of a better name, "Heropedia"), using mediawiki as the engine. I've been a comics fan forever, and a contributor to wikipedia. It's a great project, and I dig it a lot. However, I think branching off into a seperate project would be good for a subject with as much ephemeral information as comic books. My question is, can I use the infromation in Wikipedia pertaining to comic books, as long as the text of my site is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License? [more inside]

A more structured wiki?

I am looking to incorporate the mediawiki model into a more structured environment. Specifically, users should be able to add "artist" and "album" entities to a music database, and then the content related to these entities should be wikis. These things cannot just be ordinary mediawiki "articles", because I want to make comparisons on the data that requires differentiating between what kind of data it is. Does anyone know of any project that does anything like this, or have any ideas of how to do it with the least amount of coding possible?

Wikipedia page history movie?

A few months ago I came across an animated movie documenting the development of a wiki page. Essentially it was made up of screen grabs generated by going through the edit history of a document. Much googling and MeFi/Boingboing searching hasn't amounted to much. Anyone know where this is? Am I imagining this? Also: Does anyone know of an easy way to create a similar animation with a PMWiki page?

Wiki-like, server-side web page editing?

Is there server-side software that that I can log into to give me a directory listing of all the pages and folders on my web server and allow me edit the text and upload binary files? Even better would be to have it allow me to put a little edit link somewhere on the page if it knows via cookies that I'm logged in. I'd like to be able to easily edit my site from anywhere. It's not exactly a wiki because they seem to have their own directory structures, I don't need their special formatting syntax, and it wouldn't be communal. Of course, free is preferable.

a personal Wiki

A simple Wiki? After reading about Lion Kimbro and his efforts to document his every thought, I've become interested in the idea of a personal Wiki. But as the Wiki tends to reside in the realm of those a bit more geeky than I, I've had trouble finding something I'm able to install without getting lost in Unix commands. I'm confident enough when it comes to the command line (installed Movable Type without too much trouble) but can't seem to manage a Wiki. Any suggestions?
