Gould > I installed Apache and http://www.oddmuse.org/cgi-bin/wiki on FreeBSD. You have to install it in cgi-bin, create group www, and look at httpd.conf to see where files should be.

There are tons of wikis available. The most famous is MediaWiki for Wikipedia. But oddmuse is only one Perl script that works anywhere. MoinMoin has a nice balance between eyecandy and ease of use. You see it on some open-source sites. I also like DokuWiki Since it is so easy to create wiki pages, the challenge is to prevent a spaghetti-ball forming. Read all about it starting at http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WelcomeVisitors where it all started Also, a wiki is social software which some people are shy about using. Setting one up is like boiling a frog, you have to do it slowly. For minutes of meetings you can setup a mailing list like this one but in notification mode. For documentation, several dedicated wikis can be setup. Think about a page naming scheme that is consistent for your purpose.
