How to Host Your Own Wiki

Using MediaWiki again as an example, but not walking you through the process step-by-step, I want to offer some information and links on what is needed to host your own wiki.

The process involves:

- making sure you can run Windows Apache Server on your current system

- installing WAMP (which is also free) which serves as an all-in-one installation of PHP, MySQL and Apache

- downloading and installing MediaWiki

- hosting your new wiki

I think one of the best tutorials on this topic has been offered over at LifeHacker as part of its Geek to Live series. Check it out.
