Setting Up a Wiki in a Few Minutes — Installing Dokuwiki

Dokuwiki

The other day I interviewed Katriel Reichman about wikis and he recommended Dokuwiki and Mediawiki. Mediawiki runs Wikipedia, so you're probably familiar with how it looks. After the podcast I installed Dokuwiki to create the Tech Writer Blog Directory that I mentioned in an earlier post.

Dokuwiki turns out to be incredibly easy to install. The ease of setup and use is something a Doc Train speaker said about most every Web 2.0 technology — the technology part of Web 2.0 is easy; shifting the mindsets of people and organizations, on the other hand, is hard.

To illustrate how easy the set up is for Dokuwiki, I made a two-minute installation video. I'm a new Dokuwiki user, but in just playing around with it a short time I was able to figure out what I needed to do. Enjoy the video.

One of my readers, Dan, has a lot more experience with Dokuwiki. Maybe Dan can provide some tips on the pros and cons of using Dokuwiki.
