roWiki – a simple, free wiki, is a small 9kb script (in its latest version) which supports wiki markup, recent changes and history, but importantly, does not support CamelCase. Founder and author of roWiki is Marc Rohlfing rowiki@rowlff.de. Project is long dead, and original website inaccessible (but archived here). If you would like to see roWiki, you can download it from http://LionWiki.0o.cz/download/genesis/roWiki-1.05.tar.gz (version 1.05, latest version known).

roWiki was designed with ease of use, and especially installation in mind. It consists of only a single PHP-script of a 150 lines (including comments) you need to put on your web-server. The pages are stored as plain-text files, so no databases or any other requirements.

Forks

roWiki has a lot of descendants or forks, probably most important is TigerWiki (which in turn forms basis for WiKiss, LionWiki and WiKissMe).
