WikkaWiki builds on code from WakkaWiki, adding numerous features and fixes.

Some history
WakkaWiki is a legendary wiki engine, written in PHP with a MySQL backend. Developed by Carlos Zottman and Hendrik Mans, it rapidly grew into one of the most popular CMS for small intranets and collaborative projects, thanks to its lightweightness and its easily hackable code.

Death and rebirth of a wiki engine
In 2003, the development of Wakka Wiki came abruptly to an end, although a large community of contributors was still actively posting bugfixes, extensions and new functionalities. Lacking further maintainance, Wakka ceased being attractive to new users and saw most of its contributors migrate to one of its many forks. Today, WakkaWiki survives in a number of forks, sharing the same ancestry but pursuing their own visions. It is for this reason that WakkaWiki was nominated as one of the best wiki engines ever (see the WikiEngineHallOfFame).
As of September 2004 the original WakkaWiki domain appears to be defunct. The original WakkaWiki site (whose latest version is still archived on the WayBack Machine).

Introducing WikkaWiki
First released in May 2004, WikkaWiki has grown into a mature project aiming to remain faithful to Wakka's heritage of a lightweight engine with readable and accessible code. Easy extensibility/hackability (without sacrificing performance) are among Wikka's most prominent and appreciated features.
