More generally, you probably want a "content management system" (CMS), of
which wikis are members. Two I've seen recommended are Mediawiki (used by
Wikipedia) and Drupal.

A CMS is an online documentation system, and a wiki is a version-controlled
CMS. Different wikis store the versioning in different ways. Mediawiki
stores the revisions in a database (eg. MySQL). Twiki stores revisions in
RCS files. I'd guess that Trac stores revisions in Subversion.

A common problem with public wikis is defacement (including spam). The
versioning means that you can remove the defacement by reverting to an
earlier revision.
