Private wiki request

Reported by: tmitchell Owned by: tmitchell
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords:


At our directors fundraising meeting last week, I was asked to look into setting up a wiki environment that could be restricted/private, e.g. for sensitive information and ideas. I was going to just set up another mediawiki instance but wonder if there is another, more light-weight solution anyone could recommend. Only a very basic wiki is needed and only for 10-20 users. Simpler the better and prefer tied into LDAP.

Thought I'd ask before jumping into mediawiki, since I understand it wasn't really designed for more private usage (?).

going with the obvious, how about trac's wiki?

Maybe.. can it be secured enough to prevent public read access?

comment:3 by hamish, 14 years ago

I'm pretty sure it can,

top bar: [Admin]

side bar: [Permissions]

Manage Permissions

Subject Action [] anon WIKI_VIEW

where "subject" is on the royal sense, it can be osgeo id or a group name.

so you have however many osgeo ids in that list, all with WIKI_VIEW set, then remove the anon one.

We could also simply create a trac instance and protect it via apache authentification (using LDAP). Otherwise, there is also a few trac hacks to secure only specific wiki pages:

I have set up mediawiki instance has been set up but is not expected to be used for more than tracking potential donors with the board.
