~PhpWiki is written in the server-side scripting language PHP, available from [[http://www.php.net/]]. PHP resembles C and Perl in its syntax, and functions much like ASP, ~EmbPerl or JSP. ~PhpWiki consists of a dozen or so files of mixed PHP and HTML. The web pages that make up a [[Help:WikiWikiWeb|WikiWikiWeb]] based on PHP live in a database with backup copies of previous versions of pages stored as well. (For the database, ~PhpWiki works with DBM, MySQL, PostgreSQL or text files.) Every time a user hits the site, the page requested is pulled from the database and rendered on the fly. The user only really ever requests the file =index.php=, which then decides which other php files to include. Links to pages in the Wiki are automatically linked: [[FindPage]]. This might be the single most compelling aspect of a Wiki, the ability to add pages simply by linking to them. The next most compelling thing is how easily external URLs link, like this: # http://www.wcsb.org/ # ftp://ftp.redhat.com/ # news://news.mozilla.org/ # http://slashdot.org/ # http://theregister.co.uk/ Combined with one namespace and a simple markup, a Wiki exhibits many of the characteristics of [[Help:WabiSabi|WabiSabi]]. ~PhpWiki is licensed under the GNU General Public license, which you should be able to see here: [[http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.txt]]. <noinclude> ---- [[PhpWikiDocumentation]] </noinclude>
