Message Much as I hate to say it, I would recommend using another product. coWiki
is no longer under active development, and the web site is not being
maintained (so far as I can see). You could probably still get the coWiki
package out of CVS at tigris.com...

I have personally run coWiki under Linux and Win32, but not under macosx.
If your PHP5 supports MySQL, then you shouldn't have a problem with it.
(Support has to be be compiled in, and from my point of view that was always
a problem!)

To warn you, there is a relatively infrequent bug that comes up; it causes
data for a page to revert to a previous page without warning. We never
figured out what caused it, and after it hit the main coWiki site that took
some wind out of everyone's sail and the project never really recoverd from
it.

If you're still interested, I may have a copy on some machines at home. Let
me know.

Only Apache/MySQL are depended-upon. So you should be fine with
"hosting" on OSX.

Message Hi there,

today I wanted to test cowiki and found the download-link broken, so you
might wanna fix this.
I also wanted to ask if anyone managed to get cowiki to work on macosx.
The Apache is already preinstalled, I installed PHP 5.something and the
latest stable MySQL, so, does cowiki just depend on these components or are
there os-dependent binarys/executables?

Thanks for replying,

Matthias Halibrand
