DokuWiki is a standard free open source wiki software to store and manage information through the contributors and developers of the site. It was created in 2004 by Andreas Gohr. It is a simple and easy to use software and can be implemented without a database. The data is stored in plain text PHP files. This enhances the performance of the wiki site. The software is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

DokuWiki comes with built in access controls. Being open source it allows everyone to create, edit and delete pages but it has its policies of restrictions through its Access Controls List (ACL). Permissions are grouped as none, read, edit, create, upload, delete and admin. The admin user defines the level of permission on page and namespaces level with delete being the highest and read the lowest.

DokuWiki also has built in authentication extensions. It provides the various methods to store the user IDs and passwords. It offers over 1000 plugins that have been generated by the vast community of developers who are available for assistance. When a page is edited, the software creates a revision and allows viewing of both the revised and original versions.

DokuWiki supports localising. The user interface can be configured to be used in over 50 languages. DokuWiki does not need the user to have any technical skills. It can be created, accessed, modified without any knowledge of HTML by anyone without the assistance of any technical experts. The latest version was released in June 2016.

DokuWiki Access Control

Like most of the other Wikis, DokuWiki is open by default. So, anyone can create, edit, and delete pages. At times, however, it makes total sense to restrict access to some or all of the pages. In such a scenario, an Access Control list (ACL) comes in handy.

The admin can define permissions on a page and namespace level. These permissions can be of seven types: none, read, edit, create, upload, delete, admin. Every higher permission contains all the lower ones. Three permissions-create, delete, upload-can be applied to namespaces only.

DokuWiki uses all the rules matching a user’s name or the group he/she is in when deciding which permissions should be given to which user.
