Migrate the Kexi Wiki to a newer Wiki engine

Note: Work already in progress

We're using PhpWiki 1.2.1 with PHP 4.1.2. We'd like to:

  • migrate to more current PhpWiki (1.3.10) with our content if possible (to learn about upgrading, read UPGRADING document bundled with the tarball.); or
  • migrate to MediaWiki engine

There could be two main steps:

  1. analyze phpwiki's versus mediawiki's table layout and relationships; and convert the data using a custom SQL script
  2. write converter script that migrated a given wiki text from phpwiki to mediawiki

Skills needed: db administering
Subtasks:

  • propose best available Wiki engine (requirements: not bloated, support for accounts, use php, support for images and more rich content, good security)
  • you will receive MySQL dump of current content
  • you will perform migration this data to a new engine (locally), without lossing information
  • after accept, we will migrate

Note: current phpwiki used here is hacekd by us, so we have new features like TOCs.

You will get all the needed support from us. Please contact us.
