i am trying to make a wiki for my organization and am not sure where to start. What are some good packages to make your own wiki? On another note, i want to secure my wiki to where you have to authenticate yourself before you get onto the wiki. The information is sensitive and i only want certain people allowed to see the wiki. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to pull this off?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Probably you should activate mod_ssl in your httpd cofiguration (I beleive, httpd on SUSE is apache, probably v. 2.2, so the ssl.conf file will be in /etc/httpd or /etc/httpd/conf.d). Then look in mod_ssl manuals which come with the apache how to configure access to your wiki dirs exclusively through https and with proper (passwd or cert) authentication.

BTW, the mod_ssl documentation is accessible online:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html

Good luck,

Petko
