    Recommend me a Wiki

    I've built up quite a bit of knowledge on Moodle, linux and apache all related to our Moodle enviroment - Mainly admin tasks which are specific to our set-up

    I want to document this knowledge in a clear and concise way so that anyone can quickly search through for the solution.

    Im not sure a wiki is the best way to do this, as I want to create a unique page for each little snippet of code I may have. A Wiki feels like overkill to me?

    I really (really) like this site, Command-line Fu < The best UNIX commands on the web

    It will only ever be myself who will be submitting the code so it doesn't need to allow people to sign up and add to the database just read from it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I was thinking maybe of a twitter clone script of some kind, I've looked at a DIGG clone (PHPDugg) but it wants each new story to have a URL which in my case isnt the case and I dont have the knowledge to adapt the code. If anyone has seen anything like commandlinefu Id love to see it.

    Help please....Keeping all this info in my inbox isnt helping anyone.

  2. Thanks to danIT from:

    It looks like commandline Fu site is run by uservoice UserVoice - Service Plans, Features & Pricing

    they have a free option which might be worth a try

    Yes its hosted by UserVoice but created by: Code in the hole - David Winterbottom

    I've found: Chyrp

    I like it a lot and will be playing over the next few days to try and create what i need!

    MoinMoin I've used the aforementioned MediaWiki and DocuWiki extensively (I've run all three at different times) and MoinMoin has proven to have the most features and the support community is pretty good. We currently have DocuWiki but soon I will be migrating the whole shebang to MoinMoin.

    As it isn't really for multiple people to edit, a Wiki may not be the best choice. Maybe something like a normal CMS to do the job? Or how about Robopebble? Robopebble | The Programming Pebble

    The latter is very simple, but very useful.

    I've downloaded and setup a MediaWiki VM and it seemed straight forward enough. That said I can't believe no one as suggested this wiki...

    Edugeek.net Wiki

    I was thinking that, but realised it was probably for an internal documentation library...

    Your correct it is an internal reference point,

    Im currently looking at using: Vanilla - Free, Open-Source Forum Software

    I like it a lot, I just like the simplicity of it all.

    I havent really ever got on all that well with Wikis' but hey everyone else seems to rave about it!

    Hmm... a forum. Interesting idea. I'd still use robopebble myself. It is the ultimate in simplicity.

    Another dokuwiki install here, oh and cheers for the link to commandlinefu, the inputrc snippet for searching in bash history is much better than the default.

    Ok, I've tried them all!

    I've decided that a Wiki is the best solution, took a while to convince me, but i've gone with TikiWiki (latest version).

    The reason, I like it - the 'slashdot' type install which makes the articles feature on the main page and I prefer the layout it produces. Kind of a compromise between a blog and a wiki/forum.
