MediaWiki

MediaWiki

MediaWiki is a free software wiki package originally written for Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia project. It is now used by several other projects of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and by many other wikis. It is designed to handle a large number of users and pages without imposing too rigid a structure or workflow.

The software is designed to be run on a large server farm for a website that gets millions of hits per day.

MediaWiki is an extremely powerful, scalable software and a feature-rich wiki implementation, that uses PHP to process and display data stored in its MySQL database.

MediaWiki is usable on both large and small sites, though some aspects of configuration may seem overcomplicated partly as the software is focused on being the editing tool for Wikipedia.
