WikkaWiki – PHP wiki engine

It features W3 compliant XHTML and CSS output, several text formatting options, categories, a GUI for editing pages, support for images, tables, Flash objects, RSS feeds, FreeMind maps, advanced Access Control List management, referrers management, and text search functions.
