We have a short list of wiki software listed below that we are
evaluating. The project will also be using wordpress and there will
need to be some integration between the wiki and wordpress. It seems a
wiki that can use mysql and is also PHP based would be favorable.
I had also considered DBM/DBA which are object persistent databases,
but our team does not seem to favor that solution, though I have not
really analyzed that approach or have enough experience to feel I
understand all possible advantages or disadvantages that it might
have. I have not been able to find a DBM that works with PHP on
windows which some development will be on. It has been mentioned that
DBA is not going to cache the way a database does, although I also
heard somewhere else it would be faster and I suspect using memcache
with DBA would work, but I am not sure if there would be references
inside the objects that would cause a problem with that ?
I had looked into phpwiki, but had many problems with the install on
windows and I didn't see that it have very good wysiwyg editing.
Anyway, the short list:
pmwiki is set up to use flatfiles, so we may be dropping that,
although possibly it could be modified to work with mysql.
