How do you get a wiki adopted? Getting a Wiki Adopted is Tough People who love wiki find it hard to believe that people wouldn't immediately accept a wiki and start using it.

I am considering Mediawiki however it appears to be difficult to install based on some comments I have read. However, I also read that if php and mySQL are installed properly there shouldn't be any problems with installing Mediawiki. I hope that is the case. I am a beginner with php and I am hoping that it will be not too difficult to install. Perhaps I should consider a wiki that is known to be easier to install. Any suggestions? - or should I give Mediawiki a try first? Requirements: php preferred server: Unix database: mySQL These are the wikis I have looked at: Mediawiki - http://wikipedia.sf.net/ PhpWiki - http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/phpwiki/ Tikiwiki - http://tikiwiki.org/ TaviWiki - http://tavi.sourceforge.net/ JSPWiki - http://www.jspwiki.org Usemod - http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl ( I think Usemod is perl-based but I am not sure) Could anyone suggest any other recommended wikis? Which wiki is often recommended? If Mediawiki is one of the best solutions I would like to give it a try first. Just thought I would ask here first for any advice. I would also like to have a forum on my site and I noticed that the wiki called "tikiwiki" has a built in forum in it. That might be useful to me - or is it best to have a separate system for a forum (such as phpBB) for maximum features and flexibility?
