Default Wiki recommendation?

Hi,

I'd like to install a wiki from ports, but so far, I'm having a hell of a time. I'd like not to use a database because MySQL, for example, gives me a headache with its /tmp/mysql.sock error messages and so on.

Dokuwiki: too many dependencies!
Moinmoin: simple, but I'd prefer to use PHP since I've got Apache running.

Other recommendations, suggestions, links to tutorials?

I personally prefer MediaWiki, but that's just me...

On dependencies, you might consider TWiki - Perl based but itt can use rcs instead of things like MySQL ;-). Most of its run depends are (fairly common) Perl modules.

I use pmwiki, after a long long search.
it's php only.

http://www.pmwiki.org/

no sql dependencies or such like.
it works on BSD 386 linux windows,
though it seems not to work on my new
AMD64 box. (I get blank pages, am investigating)

There is even a simple windows server, so you can put it on a stick
and carry it around with you.
which is nifty e.g. for work.

DokuWiki, one of the best :-)

http://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki

And if you want to see it in action, have a look at the many different users: http://www.dokuwiki.org/users

[edit] Ah I see DokuWiki is a no-go for you ....

I would also recommend re-thinking dokuwiki. It meets your requirement of not needing a backend database. And it's powered by php.

The dependencies aren't so overwhelming for what you get:
Code:
> cd /usr/ports/www/dokuwiki && make pretty-print-run-depends-list
This port requires package(s) "freetype2-2.3.7 jpeg-6b_7 kbproto-1.0.3 libICE-1.0.4_1,1 libSM-1.1.0_1,1 libX11-1.2,1 
libXau-1.0.4 libXaw-1.0.5_1,1 libXdmcp-1.0.2_1 libXext-1.0.5,1 libXmu-1.0.4,1 libXp-1.0.0,1 libXpm-3.5.7 libXt-1.0.5_1 
libiconv-1.11_1 libpthread-stubs-0.1 libxcb-1.2 libxml2-2.7.3 pcre-7.8 php5-5.2.9 php5-gd-5.2.9 php5-mbstring-5.2.9 
php5-pcre-5.2.9 php5-session-5.2.9 php5-xml-5.2.9 php5-zlib-5.2.9 pkg-config-0.23_1 png-1.2.35 printproto-1.0.4 
python25-2.5.4_1 t1lib-5.1.2_1,1 xcb-proto-1.4 xextproto-7.0.5 xproto-7.0.15" to run.
Our team has been happily running dokuwiki behind Shibboleth. It's feature rich and seems to be easy enough for folks to pick up.

moin.

http://moinmo.in/

Easy install, no database, running it is a simple command:

Gearing up for more users:

An example of a moin wiki is Python's own wiki:
