I worked at one institution where we used Confluence. I liked it as a user, but 
from an admin side it seemed to take a lot of work. You could really do 
fine-grained user management and permissions, but it seemed overkill. What we 
did like, however, was the Jira issue tracking system. 

At my current institution we use Twiki and Bugzilla and everyone seems happy 
with both of them.

This was the other thing we liked about Apple's Wiki Server -- if you 
have local auth working with OS X in general (very straightforward if 
you're using OpenDirectory), auth just works with your existing users 
and groups.
