Creating simple websites with Bamboo
Bamboo is one of the numerous Wiki packages included in the Debian distribution, it makes creating simple websites with integrated searches very straightforward. Unlike some more basic Wikis it also allows you to create navigation bars, or menus, with nested pages and organise the structure as you see fit. The Bamboo software is a simple mix of the SQLite database for indexing, flat files for hosting the content, and a PHP front end. Although it will work upon both Apache 1.3.x, and Apache 2.x I'm only going to cover the Apache 2 setup here to save space.
