I have been trying to look for a good wiki engine to create a large public wiki. TikiWiki and DocuWiki seem to be good candidates but I am still confused after reading up quite a lot on both of them ( I did see this: https://tiki.org/Tiki+vs+DokuWiki)
Is TikiWiki good enough for really large public wikis? I know TikiWiki also provides blogs, forums and other modules from the TikiWiki CMS but not sure if I need them for now. But I am happy to use TikiWiki if it scales better than DocuWiki. Just need a really powerful wiki engine that can scale pretty well in the long term.
I am trying to make a huge crowdsourced searchable directory starting for a particular region and then scaling it up for other regions. Here's a very rough estimation of how the web site could grow:
First 6 months: 6000 pages, ~600 page views per month
Next 1 year: 12000 pages, ~1000 page views per month
Next 5 years: Maybe a million pages with 30,000 page views per month
The idea is to start small but be scalable in the long run (not having to change the base platform after a point)
Haven't zeroed into the hardware specs yet but with cloud based hosting that is something I could change later too (if needed). Would mostly use SSD storage.
If people have another wiki engine to suggest instead, all ears to hear that as well!
