in thread Kwiki, IIS / PWS, Activestate

CGI::Kwiki works fine on Windows/ActiveState Perl, though there are some quirks. It builds and installs okay, but the tests will fail, don't worry, the tests need fixing to work on NT, I've nagged Ingy about this, as have others.

Apache works great on NT, the 2.x version is quite good now, rather than a hack of a hack as the 1.3 version was. IIS and it's little brother PWS are quite terrible web servers, with plenty of know defects some very serious. Unless you have a very good reason for using them I'd install Apache instead. The other advantage of Apache is that your more likley to find documentation for it, CGI::Kwiki includes details on how to set it's self up on Apache, on anything else you have to figure it out yourself- that's pretty common.

The latest versions of Kwiki don't use the systems grep, so the search works quite fine on Windows now, without CygWin on them. Though I'd install Cygwin anyway as it's very useful on a Windows box.

Update: Added RT link. Brian says he will fix it eventually.
