I sort of assumed that installing Wiki on a site without shell access would be the tricky part but Noooooo. Its about as friendly as a rottweiler with penis envy.

Teehee, that's awesome. You using Wiki for the UW stuff?

That was the intention, now I'm looking around for something I can actually use :)

I'm just a bit pissed about the lack of customisation easily available. PHPBB for example lets me do everything I want (assign user priveliges, lock boards or topics and so on) but I can't even change the license being used on Wiki since I accidentally stuck it on GNU - making everything on the site public domain. Maybe I didn't read it right but i assumed I was picking which license I was agreeing to use Wiki with, not the content.

That bit seems sorted. The setup was built well enough that I could just create the MySQL database through the hosting365 web interface and just manually enter the name and admin info (as opposed to letting wiki create it). Its working as expected, I just think the interface is sort of shit and the complete lack of (visible) administrative options is unforgivable.
