Feature set is purposely limited to maintain the biggest advantages over other Wiki engines - small size and simplicity to install and use.

LionWiki provides essential Wiki functionality like Wiki syntax, page history, last changes, renaming pages, password protection (both read and write) and other functions.


Current version of LionWiki is 2.0beta1. You can choose from two downloads:

  • Full featured LionWiki consisting of core file, templates, configuration file, language files, plugins and help.
  • Core LionWiki consisting of just one file which contains everything needed for basic functions. It is exactly the same as index.php from full featured LionWiki.

The only software requirement is PHP installation. Recommended is PHP5, but LionWiki (without plugins) works also on PHP4 (tested on PHP 4.3.4).

Older versions can be found here.
