Hi group,

I am looking for a Wiki powered by PHP.
I found many here:

And a nice top10 list here:

Does anybody in here have some firsthand experience with some of them?

I am looking mainly for a Wiki that supports technical documentation, which  
I expect boils down to uploading technical documents in various formats.

I am looking through them now myself, but I would appriciate your  
It takes a lot of time to test 1 Wiki, let alone 50-something. :P

Thanks in advance!

When you refer to uploading documents, do you mean that you're going to use
the wiki more as a file repository than a set of pages?  I think there are
some dedicated solutions for that which might not turn up in a search for
wiki systems, so if that's your goal you might want to expand your search to
systems for storing files.

If you do want a wiki, you might look at MediaWiki (the engine that powers
e.g. Wikipedia).  It may be overkill, as it's pretty complex and loaded with
features, but AFAIK its file handling is quite good.

Unless next_page.php generates PHP, the script with this include will
only get HTML.
