Question Knowledge Sharing/Management Tool


Dear All,

I am looking for some Web Based Knowledge Sharing/Management Tool (Linux Based) for my team, so that we can have articles or information posted on it and share it within the team.

One should have login access and can view/change pages in it.

Somewhat like 68kb would be fine for me.

Before going ahead with this, I was just curious if I could have some more options to choose.

Please post if someone has used this kind of tool.

I think you'll find you just described a wiki. Many things which are percieved to traditionally require a rigid and specialised structure to hold data actually need nothing of the sort as long as you can search for what you want and can manage that effectively.

Sounds, to me, as though you're after an alternative to MS SharePoint (having used SharePoint I found it to be a very valuable tool as long as everyone uses and everyone uses it consistently). I haven't tried out any alternatives but the following links may be helpful:
http://www.o3spaces.com/
http://www.alfresco.com/
http://www.hyperoffice.com/sharepoint-alternative/

I guess it depends on how much you want to spend and what you plan to do with it - it may be that wiki software will do what you need.

Pffft! I've never used a sharepoint implementation that didn't make me want to hurt people. Last time we had to use over a thousand docs in an implementation with no search functionality at all!!

Bah, far easier to get the users to populate it. You must learn to delegate!

Hi,

I agree with acid_kewpie on his statements about SharePoint. I've administered and used it in the past (forced to) and I was getting close to valium recipes when I decided to step out. As pointed out, a Wiki will be a lot easier and complies with what OP needs. XavierP is right too with his statement
Quote:
I found it to be a very valuable tool as long as everyone uses and everyone uses it consistently
but assuming that everyone will comply with how to use it is one step to much in my book and experience. Remember, someone in a movie once said:
Quote:
Assumption is the mother of all f**k*ps
* to avoid mod_edit

Kind regards,

Eric

I would personally go the wiki route because it is much easier to work with, and it's.... well, a wiki. What more do you need?

Hi All,

Thanks a lot for your links and ideas.

Well, I have shortlisted 68kb, MediaWiki and DokuWiki

Just trying which one would be easier to configure, use and above all manage.
Will definitely post my findings here, might be useful for someone.

Thanks to all.

Hi All,

I am done. I have installed and configured phpbb. This gives me a forum look, just like LQ.

This solves my purpose.

Thanks all for your time and useful links. I am marking this thread as solved.

Yeah, it is great. The only problem I am facing is adding attachments other than images.

Please let me know if you are able to overcome it.
