Wiki software for Mac

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — hypotheses @ 11:57 pm

I’ve updated Maverick (OsX 10.8) to OsX server recently. It came with an easy interface to configure. The best part for me seems to be the wiki feature. However, this comes with a cache-22. For some reasons that I cannot figure out, and I found that similar problem has been reported for users in Thailand running OsX server.

When Wiki feature is enabled, I get an error saying that ERROR:  time zone displacement out of range This is quite dreadful! The only way to solve the problem seems to be fresh installation which is out of the question for me. Without “Wiki feature”, the server and web service would be running without any problem. So, that’s one option for me, to not enabling the wiki feature. 

My alternatives for using the built-in Wiki feature is, therefore, looking for other wiki platforms available for Mac. From Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wiki_software, the list is narrowed down to MoinMoin and MojoMojo, which is available on Mac. MoinMoin was written in Python, and the other one in Perl (recently changed the name to Catalyst software for some reason).

MoinMoin does not require database support, either Posgres, MySql, etc, which seems to be the cause of the dreaded Timezone displacement errors. Therefore, I’m going to go forward with MoinMoin installation and give it a try. I really want to try Confluence; however, they do not support it on Mac. So, Confluence is out of the picture right now.
