Although Elgg seems to be actively under development, its community is not as active and many of its plugins have not been updated for more than a year and do not seem to be maintained.

What other social networking engine do you suggest as an alternative which is more alive? I need it to support the following features:

  • Blogging
  • Forum
  • LDAP
  • Internationalization
  • Wiki pages
  • User profiles
  • Wall (Showing recent activities)
  • Roll and group management
  • Ability to be hosted locally

You might find Tiki interesting. It's a self hosted groupware platform and wiki that supports all of your listed features either built in or via plugins. It's actively maintained and as a very large community. I also tried it for a project but it was just too powerful but maybe it's exactly what you need.
