Tiki Wiki CMS on cloud

1-click AWS  Deployment   1-click Azure Deployment       1-click Google Deployment

Overview

TikiWiki, is a free and open source Wiki-based content management system and online office suite written primarily in PHP and distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) license.In addition to enabling websites and portals on the internet and on intranets and extranets, Tiki contains a number of collaboration features allowing it to operate as a Geospatial Content Management System (GeoCMS) and Groupware web application.

Tiki includes all the basic features common to most CMSs such as the ability to register and maintain individual user accounts within a flexible and rich permission/privilege system, create and manage menus, RSS-feeds, customize page layout, perform logging and administer the system. All administration tasks are accomplished through a browser-based user interface.

Tiki features an all-in-one design, as opposed to a core+extensions model followed by other CMSs. This allows for future-proof upgrades (since all features are released together), but has the drawback of an extremely large codebase.

Tiki Wiki CMS on Cloud runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) , Azure and Google Cloud Platform ( GCP ) Tiki Wiki is built to record feature requests and bug reports, discussions and troubleshooting, to develop end-user and developer documentation etc.

Tiki Wiki CMS is owned by Tiki Wiki CMS(https://tiki.org/) and they own all related trademarks and IP rights for this software.

Cognosys provides harderned, pre-configured and ready to run environment for running Tiki Wiki CMS on AWS, Google Cloud Platform ( GCP ) and Azure marketplace.
