From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
PhpWiki is wiki software written in PHP. The first version, by Steve Wainstead, was in December 1999 and was the first Wiki written in PHP to be publicly released.
The first version ran under PHP 3.x and ran on DBM files only. It was a feature-for-feature reimplementation of the original WikiWikiWeb at c2.com.
In early 2000 Arno Hollosi contributed a second database library to run PhpWiki on MySQL; from then on the features and contributions started to pile up, including a templating system, color diffs, rewrites of the rendering engine and much more. Arno was interested in running a wiki for the game Go. http://senseis.xmp.net/?GoWiki
Jeff Dairiki would be the next major contributor, and would soon head the project for the next couple of years. His interest was in Hammond Organs, and runs a wiki for Hammonds: http://www.dairiki.org/HammondWiki/
Reini Urban, Carsten Klapp, and Joel Uckerman are the primary developers today and PhpWiki is actively maintained and developed.
