    Hello, I hope someone can please explain the relationship between WordPress and Wiki. I recently wanted to install MediaWiki, however I don't meet the PHP 5 requirements. In my searching, I was lead to WordPress. I Have searched your site for definitions and am further confused by the relationship of WordPress+Wiki+Codex. My interest is in forming text for new Internet users interested about e-commerce, helping them with the learning curve of technical aspects in layman's terms and meta. How is WordPress Similar? Thank you for the read and consideration.

    They aren't similar.
    Wordpress used to use phpwiki a long time ago but then mediawiki came along so we switched to that. The only relationship they share is WordPress.

    As for the difference between WP and a wiki?
    They are entirely diffreent beasts which would need research elsewhere.
