I would stay away if you are installing a new Wiki.

It's poorly documented, and unsupported. Additionally it uses non-standard
idioms created by the author by using supporting modules that make heavy use
of filters (by the same author).

FWIW, Kwiki:: has replaced CGI::Kwiki. I would still stay away.

Instead, I would suggest Twiki (be sure to keep up with security patches), or
MediaWiki (yes, it's PHP)
