I installed MoinMoin wiki yesterday, after having lot of trouble getting it installed.

Its a pretty manual process which involves lots of writing config files and setting file permissions.

Its uh....already a bit alien after using MediaWiki for everything else (work, hackspace etc).

But it stores it's data as files and doesnt need a database, which is pretty important for a little home/personal wiki.

I installed it because I have outgrown using Zim-wiki. Which is great, but you gotta figure out how to sync across devices it yourself, and you cant access the data on someone else's computer.

MoinMoin is on my homeserver and, via VPN, is accessible from anywhere 💯


I may end up writing something to do zim to moinmoin conversion.
Because obviously, the wiki syntax is different....
