What wiki software do you recommend?

2095 pts.
MySQL 5.0
Just as the title suggests, what wiki software (DokuWiki, MediaWiki, etc...) do you suggest to run?  The purpose of this is nothing more than to make a remote note-taking sort of scenario, so it's not something for anyone but me to be used.  I know I could do my own thing and stuff, but I'd rather get to know future software.  Given how MySQL works, I don't really care if it's flatfile or not, but if it's DB it will make it harder to integrate when I switch to mongoDB later on.

Software/Hardware used:
Linux, PHP 5.3, MySQL 5.3 (or 5.4), Lighttpd

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

To the point answer…, and no long paragraph, use MediaWiki with confidence, it can be downloaded for free and host your own wiki.
MediaWiki a custom made, open source wiki software platform written in PHP and built upon the MySQL database. It is licensed under GNU General Public License and it is used by all Wikimedia projects as well as many other wiki projects. Currently runs on dedicated clusters of Linux servers, with a few OpenSolaris machines for ZFS.
As I am using this product on SuSE Server and it works fine and smoothly.

Just for your information, if more than any person attempts to save a page, MediaWiki will attempt to merge their changes into the current version of the text and you will happy to know that the it is possible to merge changes manually in MediaWiki.

Happy to inform you!

    I would recommend TiddlyWiki, a reusable non-linear personal web notebook. It is a personal wiki that does not require any type of database to run. There are many different versions of TiddlyWiki but they all have the same features of being standalone files requiring no database and provide offline update capabilities.

    Twiki looks like overkill for a basic need, but does look amazing for a more collaboration tool. :) I'll probably check out TiddlyWiki as it's flat file, and MediaWiki is too much of a pain. Thanks everyone for the help! :D

    Cool! Glad you will check it out. I personally like the MonkeyPoweredTiddlyWiki (MPTW). I have been using it for the past few years as a journal and documentation repository.
