LionWiki provides essential Wiki functionality like Wiki syntax, page history, last changes, renaming pages, password protection (both read and write) etc. More features are provided by plugins.

You can try all the features of LionWiki right on this website, preferably on Sandbox.


Current version of LionWiki is 3.2.1. You can choose from two downloads:

  • Full featured LionWiki consisting of core file, templates, configuration file, language files and plugins.
  • 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 newest release of 3.1 series is currently 3.1.2 and can be downloaded from here. Older versions can be found here.

The only software requirement is PHP installation with version greater or equal to 4.3. See page on installation for details.
