Wiki Engine

WikiEngine is another word for wiki software. You run it on a WebServer to make wikis available.

The basic functions of a WikiEngine are:

  • store and manage the pages either using the FileSystem or a DataBase
  • answer requests from internet users that want to see or edit wiki pages in their browser
  • store revisions of pages in a PageArchive for safety reasons
  • manage users and their rights if there is the need
  • implement dozens of basic and hundreds of addition functions
See FolderWikiEngines for examples.
