Running a Win2012 Server (IIS, .NET 4.5, MS SQL) server in our office. Looking to set up a wiki for our employees. What free wiki would be easy to set up?

  • 1
    What should the wiki be capable of (basic requirements)? Think of links, images, tables, code formatting … What should be used as "wiki language" (Markdown, MediaWiki, …)? Must it be extensible by plugins? Should it use a database, or "plain text files"? Any other requirements? Currently your question is quite vague, and could be closed as "too broad". So please edit it and add some more details. Thanks!

  • As alway, Wikimatrix should be your first stop. wikimatrix.org/wizard

  • Is there a particular reason you couldn't run PHP on your server? This would increase the number of options a lot.

They both are open source and support plugins and themes.


By default you can actually deploy MediaWiki on IIS.
