Describe in one sentence:

TWiki is a flexible, powerful, secure, yet simple web-based collaboration platform. Use TWiki to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base or any other groupware tool on either an intranet or on the Internet.

Check out the brief summary.

System Requirements:

TWiki is file based and doesn’t use a database. Backup of data involves backing up of file folders such as the “data” folder. (Other folders are not critical)
