Anyone any experience of setting up a Wiki? Either PHP (5) or ASP. Is
PHPWiki any good? I need something that interfaces well with MySQL with
a nice simple database structure - we'll need to be able to bridge the
content to Flash.

Re: PHP Wiki
The MediaWiki is extremely good but it is written for the wikipedia,
which is a huge project with many contributors and it is done how the
wikipedia want it which never exactly what the client seems to want.
There are few options. TWIKI has plenty of options and extras that can
tailor better to your clients needs.
It is sort of like buying an up market holiday package as opposed to
organizing it yourself.
The biggest problem with me is that most applications of a wiki that I
have been involved in require some security. Wikipedia is not designed
for that. Its designed to be open.
The security. You have to check with the internet provider if they can
do TWIKI before you sign up. Many will say you can run it but in
reality they do not eg Lunarhost.

PHPWiki is OK as far as I can tell. I played with it a bit recently out
of curiosity, and it seemed fairly easy to use/configure.
MediaWiki is quite good as well - a lot of extensions available.
