A free Wiki server

What is it?

WikiServer is a free program, with source code, which implements Wiki on a minimal webserver. It is extremely easy to configure and use. If you don't know what Wiki is, visit the original Wiki. Or just download it and find out!

What does it run on?

WikiServer is a WIN32 program, using WinSock to communicate to the outside world over TCP/IP. It is written in C++ and compiles using Microsoft Visual C++. There is no UNIX version as yet.

Where can I download it?

You can download WikiServer V1.00 as a ZIP file, or you can download the older WikiServer V0.95. Either needs an unzip program such as WinZip to extract the files. You can also view the "Read Me" file online.

What is the licence?

WikiServer is postcardware. Send me an email to let me know that you downloaded it, and how you're getting on with the software. It's those emails that makes it worth my while putting this software up. Some of them are really sweet ;) Please let me know too if you have difficulties with the software - I can help.

Coming soon ... WikiServer V1.1

I'm working on WikiServer V1.1. This will feature:

  • Conformant HTML output [HTML 3.2 or 4.0 Transitional]
  • Table formatting
  • User-defined HTML template - design proper sites!
  • InterWiki support
  • User-defined MIME types for downloading other document formats
  • Support for ISO European character set
  • Require / allow user logins

Currently the administration is very basic and relies on editing config files. I'm hoping this isn't too difficult for users to deal with. I may simply remove this feature, because lots of feedback has shown that most people don't need it, and I don't want it to make WikiServer harder to get started with.

Someone is working on a POSIX port of WikiServer V1.1, and the codebase contains an OS seperation layer to assist porting to other platforms [Mac OS? RISC OS? V2OS? :-)]

If you're interested in using a beta version of WikiServer V1.1 please email me to let me know that you have downloaded it here.
