What wiki software should I use?

This site has been set up using Wikidot, which is an excellent value for money alternative for anyone considering setting up either a personal or public wiki, but there are other alternatives, particularly if you want to host the wiki on your own servers.

A very good option for an organisation that wants to host a wiki on their own servers is MediaWiki. MediaWiki is the software that Wikipedia runs on. It is free to download, fairly easy to set up, and has the advantage of a very large user base.

If you want to check out even more alternatives Wikimatrix.org is a great resource for comparing options.
