Do you know anything about the environment you are going to be
installing your wiki in?  Are you using a Windows or a *nix computer to
serve it?  Do you know whether you will be using IIS or Apache?  What
versions of php and MySQL do you have at your disposal?  This link will
probably help you http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Installation  On this
list we obviously love MediaWiki, but are you sure that is the wiki
software you want to go with?  You said some areas of your wiki you need
to log in to edit and some you don't, can you elaborate on that any?  
In the future, it is a good idea to make your subject a reader's digest
version of your problem.

Good luck!

Dear List Members,

I'm new to this list and new to the wiki admin stuff.  I need to start a
wiki for my school.  I'm not a programmer, but I will learn anything I a
need to learn.

I need it for both the public use and intra-organizational use of the
district I teach in, so some things will require a user log-in and

I have noticed there are several places to download wiki from, but I
need to
know what would be the best package to download that would be the
for me to set up with minimal programming requirements.

Any URLs and advice you can offer a newbie would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
