Question Ubuntu + Apache2 + Wordpress


I'm not sure if this is the combination I should use, but it's all I've ever tried.

I want a website, were people can login to and append to pages(We have projects that always change). Call it a wiki of project pages I suppose? Wordpress could do this, I could have a "Project page" with sub pages for each individual project.

However, is it possible for Wordpress to give a directory listing?
Just as you would in Apache2 if you didn't give a default directory index "index.html" for example.

It'd just be easier to have all those files handy, while we find a way to add them to pages

Not sure about Wordpress - probably; but definitely can be achieved using Drupal.

Have you looked at the Wordpress plugins? I don't think the functionality is native, but a plugin might provide it.

I've been using WP since v. 1.5 and haven't seen anything like this in the basic package.

Wordpress also has forums.

Could always use MediaWiki and do a full wiki implementation.

I've gone for drupal, however the testing is on a VM, I can always roll back and install wordpress.Ideally, I just want a page which serves as an index, providing links to all other articles(these articles can be edited).I'll have a look at mediaWiki too

The other part... how to get all txt file information ---> articles :s

I have two VMs at the moment. One for WP and one for Drupal.

Hints for either would be great
I'm still undecided which direction to go in

Wordpress has a "CSV IMPORTER" add-in that would let you user well formed CSV files to import articles. I've also seen an option in WPRobot (which I've not looked at to be honest) that is supposed to take .txt files from a folder on the server and import them. With anything of that nature if you're using wordpress then you might also want to look at some of the automatic tag / automatic category add-ins.
