Wiki software

Wiki software is a type of collaborative software that runs a Wiki system. It is usually a CGI script that runs on web server(s) in the World Wide Web.

The first such software was originated or created by Ward Cunningham. Now, many different scripts exist. They clone or enhance the original version. A list of these different Wiki script-variants can be found at the URL of " class="external">

The remainder of this article lists only the most popular Wiki scripts.
