Creating a Wiki with kwiki

Filed under

Wikis have become familiar to many people thanks to the popularity of large sites such as Wikipedia and can be very useful for creating collaborative websites.

Installing the software under Debian is very simple and we will show how to setup a new installation using the Debian Apache2 webserver package.
