How do I set up a Wiki?

A wiki allows the collaborative creation and maintenance of websites. Wiki pages look and act like normal web pages, except they have an "Edit" link that makes it easy to modify existing pages and add new pages into the website.

CETS has installed two wikis for use:

  1. PmWiki - A simple wiki that has many skinning and plugin options. Use PmWiki unless you have a specific reason to use MediaWiki. Here are specific installation instructions for the SEAS web servers. For more information, visit the official PmWiki site.
  2. MediaWiki - A slightly more complicated wiki that powers Wikipedia. If you are familiar with the Wikipedia markup language, it may be worth using MediaWiki over PmWiki. Here are specific installation instructions for the SEAS web servers. For more information, visit the official MediaWiki site.
