There are many other wiki servers besides UseModWiki, some of which have features not found in UseModWiki (and vice versa). If you are thinking about setting up a wiki, I recommend that you take a look at the other servers--it is possible that one of them will work better for your needs. (After you look at the rest, choose the best. ;-) --CliffordAdams

Note: WardsWiki has the full list of all Wiki:WikiEngines.

Here are a few good places to start:

PmWiki (http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/PmWiki/PmWiki) is a WikiWikiWeb? clone developed by PatrickMichaud? in the PHP programming language. PmWiki has been primarily designed as a tool to support easy, collaborative authoring and maintenance of web sites.

TWiki (http://twiki.org/) is another "full featured" wiki written in Perl. It provides extra features like full versioning, user registration, custom forms (edited through the wiki), and plugin support.

WikkiTikkiTavi (http://tavi.sourceforge.net/) is written in PHP and uses MySQL for the wiki page database. Tavi has most of the UseModWiki features and adds others like MeatBall:SubscribedChanges.

PhpWiki (http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/) is another commonly-used wiki written in PHP.

MoinMoin (http://moin.sourceforge.net/) is a mature internationalized wiki written in Python.

ZWiki (http://www.zwiki.org/) uses the Zope platform to provide wiki services. ZWiki is particularly good at hierarchical organization of wikis. It does require that your host run the Zope server software, however, which is not commonly available from most ISPs.

SeedWiki? (http://www.seedwiki.com) is an open source Coldfusion Wiki farm that lets you start your own Wiki or download the code to host your own Wiki.

PWP Wiki Processor (http://www.lars-ackermann.de/wiki/static) is a GPL based Wiki written in PHP. Alternative download location: http://meiert.com/lib/pwp-1.4.2.zip (155 KB)

OpenWiki (http://www.openwiki.com) an longstanding ASP wiki supporting MSAccess, MS SQL Server, mySQL and Oracle DB backends. New versions in the works, more info at: http://www.openwiki.info.

See Wiki:WikiEngines for many more wikis, and Wiki:WikiWikiClones for more general information.

Alternately, Wiki:WikiFarm lists sites that allow people to set up their own wikis (on a shared site).

http://chiki.emaho.org I like this java version, and was very impress with the professionalism of the team, organization, and overall look and feel. http://chiki.goot.emaho.org although I like this better, I wonder if Ulrich and Guenter will port it to Netware ;)

SnipSnap? (http://snipsnap.org) is another java version, but with some unconventional approaches. It includes a weblog feature as well. Very easy to install.

WakkaWikki? is a highly flexible PHP based Wiki system that uses MySQL. It had a website once at http://www.wakkawiki.com.

KWiki (http://www.kwiki.org/) a simple wiki in perl. Good unicode support, very hackable object oriented internals.

TipiWiki? (http://tipiwiki.sourceforge.net) simple, strict xhtml, clever. Written in PHP. Flat file.

JSPWiki (http://www.jspwiki.org/Wiki.jsp) A JSP based Wiki.

MediaWiki (http://wikipedia.sf.net/) The WikiWiki behind Wikipedia (and other WikiMedia projects), written in PHP.

Woha (http://www.oha.it/woha) A wiki with latex, footnotes, authentication, comments written in Perl

UseModj? (http://sourceforge.net/projects/usemodj/) UseModj? is a Java based Wiki Clone, using Struts Framework, Velocity Layout, log4j. It's goal is to be the same functional and file database as UseMod wiki, but is deployed by dropping a single war file into Tomcat or JBoss Server.

Instiki (http://www.instiki.org/show/HomePage) A Ruby-based Wiki offering easy installation and the choice of three different Wiki markup languages.

Soks (http://www.soks.org) Yet another ruby wiki with automatic linking and an api for helper code to interact with the wiki, creating automatic summaries and the like.

Oddmuse (http://www.oddmuse.org/cgi-bin/wiki) An offshoot of UseModWiki, with various patches incorporated.
